Your views on name issues in IRs

Posted in feedback by Amanda Hill on 16 July, 2010

The Names Project team are looking for information about the way that individuals’ names are handled within institutional repositories in the UK. In particular, how names are entered and whether they are disambiguated and controlled in any way.

If you are involved in running an institutional repository, we would love to hear from you. The survey will be available until Friday 30th July. The information you provide will be used to help us assess the scale of the problem (if, indeed, you think there is one!) and to determine the future priorities of the Names project.

If you would like to see all of the survey’s questions before completing it online, there’s a
PDF version to preview.

The pilot names system, which currently holds over a million names, is available for you to explore through an advanced or browse search.
