ORCiD: a primer for librarians

Hopefully you were able to attend the June 23 WHSLA Wisdom Chat on ORCiD, given by Trisha Adamus, of UW-Madison's Ebling Library. Trisha gave us an overview of what ORCiD is and how she helps promote it in her work as an ORCiD Ambassador. 

If you weren't able to attend the webinar, there are still plenty of ways to learn about what ORCiD is and what it can do...

Medical Reference Services Quarterly, 35(2), 135-144. doi: 10.1080/02763869.2016.1152139. Available at: "The ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) registry helps disambiguate authors and streamline research workflows by assigning unique 16-digit author identifiers that enable automatic linkages between researchers and their scholarly activities. This article describes how ORCID works, the benefits of using ORCID, and how librarians can promote ORCID at their institutions by raising awareness of ORCID, helping researchers create and populate ORCID profiles, and integrating ORCID identifiers into institutional repositories and other university research information systems."
