Spotlight: ORCIDs now in DSpace for faculty, grad students, postdocs, & research staff

Records in the Open Access Articles collection in the DSpace@MIT repository now include ORCIDs—or Open Researcher Contributor Identifiers—for MIT authors who have the alphanumeric identifier attached to their names. Staff in the Libraries, who worked on the project between April and December 2016, also created an automatic process to add ORCIDS to new records as they enter the OA collection.
