Low-Risk Persistent Identification: the "Entity" (N2T) Resolver : Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca


Kunze, John

Beschreibung (eng)

The N2T ("entity") identifier resolver addresses the same problem as URN, Handle, and DOI resolvers, but does so without complex or proprietary software components. N2T is lower-risk than those resolvers because it relies only on off-the-shelf open-source components, and it is the only resolver to acknowledge and address the "namespace splitting problem". N2T (Name-to-Thing) is both a persistent identifier resolver and a consortium of cultural memory organizations. The consortium has no fees or requirements, and merely offers its members the option to publicize a protected form of their URLs supported by the resolver. The resolver is a small, standard web server run in several mirrored instances by consortium volunteers under one hostname rented for about $30 USD per year. The resolver works equally well with any identifier scheme (URLs, ARKs, Handles, DOIs, URNs, PURLs) that can be expressed inside a URL.
