Agreement helps library publishers participate in CrossRef

“CrossRef and the California Digital Library (CDL) have signed an agreement that promises to open up a route for library publishers to participate in the scholarly communications hub created by CrossRef. Through the agreement, publishers using CDL’s EZID digital identifier service now may choose to deposit the metadata for their content in the CrossRef system. This move will enable them to use the full range of CrossRef services, including search and discovery, persistent linking, tracking of funding and licensing information, text and data mining, and more. As a CrossRef Sponsoring Publisher, EZID will handle the technical and administrative processes for its client publishers, which promises to reduce barriers to their CrossRef participation.” (via Research Information)
