Purpose: Purpose: This list will be focused on the persistent identification of
data sets that are shared. One primary use case will be the
inter-relation of scientific data sets produced by different research
teams; other use cases might include media developed by different
sources and combined into a common collection. The first topic of
discussion is expected to be permanent identifiers for data sets: their
format, how they are assigned and resolved. This will draw from
existing methods such as DOI, URN, PURL. Access policies based on
identifiers, discovery, association of meta-data, and data integrity are
expected to be later topics.
