In the past year, the major groundwork has been laid for repository systems to support ORCID identifiers. DSpace, Hydra, and EPrints all have support for storing and managing ORCIDs. However, we are still in the early stages of ORCID adoption. Only a small fraction of repository content is annotated with ORCIDs, and most end-users have not yet realized any benefit from the features based on ORCID.

This panel will bring together representatives of major repository systems to relate the current status of ORCID implementations, discuss plans for future work, and identify shared goals and challenges. The panelists will discuss how ORCID support provides practical benefits both to repository staff and end-users, with a focus on features that exist now or will exist in the next year.

Horizontal vs vertical organizations of repositories

Robert Peters, Laura Paglione

ORCID, Inc, United States of America

Over its lifetime, an organization’s structure often transitions between a vertical (hierarchical) one and a horizontal (flat) one. Each structure has its benefits and challenges as it relates to how information is communicated, how work gets done, and how collaborative or self-contained the organization can or must be in interacting with others. This session explores these models as applied to repositories in the interconnected ecosystem in which they exist. Specifically it will consider:

* What are the attributes of a “vertical” or highly-aggregated repository? How does this differ from a “horizontal” or highly-distributed one? What are some examples of each type?

* What are the benefits and challenges that each model provides?

* In what situations does it make sense for the two models work together?

* A case study: how some traditionally “vertical” repositories are benefiting from the “horizontal” information model being provided by tools like ORCID.
