ISNI - trustfully identifying authors, connecting digital collections, streamlining workflows

Anila Angjeli from the BnF presented ISNI at the conference "Sustaining the networked future: use and reuse of digital content", organized within the activities of the European project "Ebooks On Demand". The conference shed light on challenges and chances of the networked future, "Sustainability" covers an area well beyond preservation of content, data and metadata. How can digital materials made be visible, stay visible, be linked and endure? ISNI is a response to these questions with respect to the identification, linking and visibility of all contributors to digital materials.
