The Professional/Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Committee for Digital Innovation (CDI) will be hearing from guest speaker Christine Orr, Sales Director – North America at RINGGOLD on Wednesday, July 19 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the HarperCollins/NY offices. 

Christine will address Persistent Identifiers – The 5 things you need to know.  The use of persistent identifiers (PIDs) has become much more widespread in our industry, as the need to accurately define people, places, and things has become critical in all phases of the scholarly cycle. Ringgold explains the importance of PIDs and why you should be using them to your advantage whatever your role in scholarly communications. Case studies detailing implementations of PIDs will be showcased. 

The guest speaker talks are free of charge but registration is required as space is limited. You can sign up to hear the talks in-person or via teleconference. If you or a colleague wishes to attend, please contact Sara Pinto and state whether you would like to attend in person or remotely.
