Networking Names

Networking Names by Karen Smith-Yoshimura is an OCLC Research publication.
The fifteen members of the RLG Partners Networking Names Advisory Group1 collaborated on articulating the problem space that the research community needs to address and identify components of a “Cooperative Identities Hub” that would have the most impact across different target audiences. The group developed use case scenarios that provide the context in which different communities would benefit from aggregating information about persons and organizations, corporate and government bodies, and families, and making it available on a network level. This report summarizes the group’s recommendations on the functions and attributes needed to support the use case scenarios.
