After three years of webinars, online workshops, and virtual member meetings, DataCite Connect Gothenburg finally brought together our community for an in-person meeting co-located with the RDA Plenary 20. We are happy that so many members joined us to connect, learn, and discuss national PID and open research strategies and the role DataCite can play in their development.
IGSN ID Catalogs – Now it is Even Easier to Register IGSN IDs!
DataCite now has a mechanism built into Fabrica for designating a Repository account as an IGSN ID Catalog that will be used exclusively for the registration of IGSN IDs. This development ensures identification of Repositories and prefixes that are used for IGSN ID registration, and enables IGSN IDs to be tracked and identified. It also enables future updates to DataCite services and our Metadata Schema to be correctly applied to IGSN IDs.
DataCite Design System is ready to be worn.
At DataCite, we are excited to announce the introduction of our new design system.
As an organization that values collaboration and innovation, we constantly look for ways to improve our processes and products. That is why we have developed a design system that will provide our teams with a consistent and user-friendly design language for our web services.
