EZID Service Update: July 2014
Recent Enhancements, News, and Activities
- On the EZID documentation page (http://ezid.cdlib.org/home/documentation) we’ve recently added a link under Technical Documentation to a wiki page that lists open source software for EZID. As the new page states, we do not support the software, but we felt that gathering this information might be useful to clients who use the application programming interface (API). If you have suggestions for additional listings, or if you think anything on the wiki page should be removed, please let us know.
- The DataCite Summer Conference is now open for registration. This year, the conference will be held in Nancy, France, hosted by DataCite’s French member INIST. The conference dates (25-26 August 2014) follow the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) meeting in Lyon. For full details, see the conference site: http://datacite.inist.fr/.

EZID Service Description
EZID (easy-eye-dee) is a production service that gives researchers the ability to create and manage long-term identifiers so that they can to track usage, get credit for their work, share their data, and have the data reused for additional research. As a result, EZID identifiers also make it possible to increase citations, to build on previous work, to conduct new research, and avoid duplicating previous efforts.
