Using Identifiers to Capture and Expose Facilities Use

Laure Haak's picture

User facilities are specialized government-sponsored research infrastructure, such as labs, collections, field stations, or large equipment, that are available for researchers’ use to advance scientific or technical knowledge.

Recently several facilities have begun to explore innovative approaches to these challenges, including adoption of ORCID.
