Identify Database User Group Meeting, 14 September 2016
The 2016 Ringgold Identify Database UK User Group Meeting was held on first morning of the ALPSP conference. The meeting was well attended with some very interesting discussion and helpful feedback given.
Our speakers gave excellent presentations, the first was from Fabio Bertolini, Project Manager at Brill who described the integration of the Identify Database and Audit records into Brill’s systems, using the Ringgold ID as the lynchpin.
Erin Foley, Account Manager, Rights Holder Relations, Copyright Clearance Centre then described the successful integration of the Identify Database into CCC’s RightsLink® for Open Access service using the Ringgold API.
Identify Database User Group Meeting, 3 June 2016
The SSP Conference in Vancouver BC was the perfect place to kick off Ringgold’s series of Identify Database User Group Meetings. With the hum of nearby floatplanes taking off in Vancouver Harbor, our clients and partners came together on June 3 to hear where Ringgold & the Identify Database are heading next.
A big thank you to our speakers: Alice Meadows of ORCID began the afternoon by detailing the importance of joining personal and institutional IDs. Next, Thomson Reuters’ Chris Heid shared their experience of integrating Identify to support clean author affiliations across the range of 6,000 journals on the ScholarOne Manuscripts platform. And Keith Layson of AAAS/Science told of how his colleagues are using Identify to not only analyze market potential, but also to break down barriers between data silos and leverage their own business intelligence more effectively.
Thanks also to the clients who attended, bringing great energy to our discussion of Identify’s practical applications and thoughts on our development.
