RIDIR Focus Groups Report
JISC; RIDIR; Rightscom; Identifier interoperability; eSIG
The RIDIR Project was developed in response to a successful tender to the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) to build a ‘Persistent Identifier Interoperability Demonstrator’ (JISC Circular 04/06). In planning the work of the project, it was decided that RIDIR development should be informed by holding two focus group meetings with practitioners in the field. The first meeting would consult with repository managers to discover their needs in terms of identifiers and interoperability; these needs would then form the basis of use cases to be addressed by the project. The second meeting would be held with invited experts in the field to ratify and possibly expand on the findings of the first.
