T213 Enhancing and Amplifying Research at NC State University through Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID): A Case Study
Tuesday, October 22, 2019 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Venue: Hilton San Francisco Union Square Lobby Level
Room: Golden Gate 8
Dates: October 22, 2019 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM PST
In late 2018 the Libraries and the Office of Research & Innovation at NC State University partnered to leverage an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) institutional membership for the campus. ORCID provides free persistent digital identifiers, through which they can track grant submissions and publishable works, and with an institutional membership, universities such as NC State are able to track and integrate ORCID data into other systems such as faculty reporting systems and electronic research administration systems. Although the Libraries had already undertaken a project to use ORCID as the data source for our NC State Publications Inventory, the institutional membership enhanced the project outcome, and allowed us to explore additional services around reporting, tracking, and assessment of research funding and outputs. Since publishers and funders are increasingly integrating ORCID into their workflows and systems, we anticipate that the service possibilities and value to researchers will only continue to increase. This session will focus on our work to date leveraging ORCID for research support services. We’ll also share some of our strategies for increasing awareness and adoption of ORCID, lessons learned along the way, and our future plans.

1. Understand ORCID, ORCID Profiles and the data included in them.
2. Identify ways to create ORCID enabled and/or ORCID enhanced services for researchers.
