1 doi> DOI – new applications panel IDF Annual Members meeting Bologna 2005

2 doi> Scope – a reminder Digital Object Identifier = –not Identifier of Digital Object –but Digital Identifier of Object Object = any entity of interest in an intellectual property transaction. It can be physical, digital or abstract, e.g. people, organisations, agreements, etc. Object is defined by metadata and terminology from data dictionary (indecs framework et al) to ensure that what you mean is what I mean (interoperability) What is identified is not necessarily what DOI resolves to (what is resolved to is about what is identified)

3 doi> Value of the DOI system See DOI factsheet: Value added by the DOI system –Version 1.0: The value of the DOI system is from three functions: –Persistent identification –Network actionability –Semantic interoperability Value is added by each of these three –Each offers value –Can have one or more for a DOI application –The combination provides best advantage

4 doi> Value added (1) Design –A system for persistent, semantically interoperable, identification of intellectual property entities on any digital network. –Media type neutral: applies to physical and digital objects and abstract entities (resources, parties, licences, etc) Standards based –Uses existing components in building an added value application. –To be an ISO standard Syntax –Standard NISO Z39.84 syntax Technical Infrastructure –IDF funds aspects of technical infrastructure underlying the DOI System

5 doi> Value added (2) Social infrastructure (persistence) –IDF builds on top of Handle a social structure guaranteeing persistence, which is a function of organizations, not of technology; a persistent identifier system requires a persistent organization and defined processes. Resolution (network actionability) –Uses Handle System –Technology neutral (only requires internet connectivity) Data structure (semantic interoperability) –Precisely specify exactly what is identified –Can be used to embody any relationships, e.g. a parent-children relationship. Handle technology allows this; DOI provides a framework to achieve it. Business potential –Registrants can incorporate persistent, semantically interoperable, identification of intellectual property entities as part of services providing added value

6 doi> Some examples Using DOI for cultural artefacts: –Making available the form content of cuneiform tablets: the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI) (http: // Using DOI for Licensing –Making licence information actionable: The Electronic Resource Management Initiative (ERMI) and MI3P projects Using DOI for Public Sector Information –Navigating and accessing public sector information in Europe Using DOI for whole of value chain information management –For products where metadata needs to be changed and updated as they move along the value chain

7 doi> Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative Persistent identification –Identifies the writing tablet for later citation by others Network actionability –Resolves to a single image or multiple, embedded images (cut out images of the same writing tablet) or data Semantic interoperability –Specify exactly which tablet and image is identified –Enables translation (mapping into other languages) of the image data, its history and other relevant facts –Metadata and objects can be included in other library collections

8 CDLI lead page Lead page of the CDLI

9 CDLI archival image Fat cross archival image of same text, with cut-out. Full resolution (600ppi) on next slide

10 Returned text Tablet obverse 1.A. 1(N01), |NINDA2+1(N01)| 1.B. 1(N05), 2.A. 1(N01), 1(N39A) 2.B. 1(N42A), 3.A. 2(N01), 1(N24) 3.B. 1(N42A), 4.A. 6(N01), 1(N28) 4.B. 1(N42A) 1(N25), 5.A. 2(N14), GAR 5.B. 3(N42A) 1(N25), … The text to the left, sold in London in the early 90s, was, using CDLI files, identified as a tablet looted from a southern Iraq museum during the Shiite uprising, and has been returned to the Iraq Museum

11 doi> Licensing Persistent identification –Identifies the parties and licences Network actionability –Resolves to licensing messages: permissions, restrictions and requirements Semantic interoperability –Specifies precisely what is licensed and managed – enables interoperability –Interoperability = the possibility of use in services outside the direct control of the issuing assigner –Can be used for Inter-Library Loans, subscription agents or library system vendors (ERMI project) –Can be used to support B2B licensing messages for online music licence management (MI3P)

12 doi> Public Sector Information Persistent identification –Identifies the physical or digital manifestations of PSI Network actionability –Resolves to physical location of content Semantic interoperability –Specifies precisely what is identified and managed, enabling interoperability –all meaning the same thing –Allows searches in multiple languages, across multiple databases Future enhancements? –Enables (if required) granular access and control for different users

13 doi> Public Sector Information

14 doi> Value chain information management (1)

15 doi> Coursepacks across the value chain Persistent identification –Identifies the physical or digital manifestations of works Network actionability –Resolves to rights-cleared digital content or Print on Demand output Semantic interoperability –Ensures that what a user thinks is being managed is what the issuer meant to be managed: preserves the integrity of value chain process –Can be used as part of resource discovery or ordering systems –Can link to Print on Demand facilities anywhere in the world


17 doi> Value chain information management (2) For products with volatile or context-sensitive supplier/terms: Persistent identification –Identifies a physical product, possibly using a discovery tool based on an ageing data-repository Network actionability –Context-based resolution returns message (providing current supplier routing-address and terms for that particular customer) Semantic interoperability –Enables ordering systems to communicate

18 doi> Conclusions Full functionality of DOI System (AP Framework, Data Dictionary), uptake and use? Additional generic tools (e.g. Acrobat plug-in)- role of IDF? Outreach to new applications- role of RAs, role of IDF?
