The 13th annual Data Harmony Users Group (DHUG) meeting is just around the corner. The keynote speaker for Wednesday, February 7th is Martin Klein, Scientist in the Research Library at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

His presentation is titled, “Towards Web-Centric Repository Interoperability.”

In this talk Martin will outline the Signposting concept for repositories – a standards-based  approach for systems to expose their data in a more meaningful manner and to show machines how to navigate it.

Adopting such approaches helps repositories become more friendly to machines, closer integrated with the web, and more open to interoperation with other systems, which will lead to applications that ultimately are beneficial for humans.

Martin’s research focuses on web-based scholarly communication, web archiving, and scholarly system interoperability. Together with colleagues of the Prototyping Team, he has recently investigated the notion of reference rot in scholarly communication, the use (or rather the lack thereof) of PIDs in research articles, and the suitability of ORCID records to discover scholarly artifacts for archiving.

Martin is an editor and contributor to various technical standards that enable and leverage interoperability and infrastructure.
