Lisa Schiff, a Technical Lead in CDL’s Access & Publishing Group, has been named as co-chair of the ORCID Business Steering Group (BSG). ORCID ( Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique research identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers.  ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors, and national boundaries and its cooperation with other identifier systems.

ORCID is governed by representatives from a broad cross-section of stakeholders from the global scholarly research community, the majority of whom are non-profits. 

Congratulations, Lisa.
