John Kunze’s tutorial on ARKs (Archival Resource Keys) delivered at JCDL and his work on YAMZ was mentioned prominently in Lesley Frew’s blogpost at the Web Science and Digital Libraries Group at Old Dominion University, “”Up and running with ARK persistable identifiers” JCDL Tutorial Trip Report.” ARK persistent identifiers form one of the primary features of the YAMZ application and help ensure continuity of terminology.
The Metadata Reasearch Center congratulates Jane Greenberg, its Director and Founder, for receiving the Association for Information Science & Technology’s (ASIS&T) 2023 Research in Information Science Award.
