Persistent Identifier Service

The ability to unambiguously and persistently locate and access digital objects is an important requirement of successful long-term digital preservation. In a digital preservation archive, the use of persistent identifiers (PIs) is manifold including identifying AIPs in the storage as well as the RepInfo records in the RepInfo registry. Assigning PIs to objects is usually the task of the Data Management component of the archive.

In SCIDIP-ES, we aim to develop a simple persistent identifier service that interfaces to existing Persistent Identification systems (e.g. DOI) to obtain a unique identification code for the digital objects that are created within the system. It allows the interoperation of persistent identifiers used in different repositories.
