Jerusalem, Israel—March 10, 2021. Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce its partnership with DataCite, a leading global organization that provides persistent identifiers (DOIs) for research outputs and data. The integration between the Ex Libris Esploro research information management solution and the DataCite service enables researchers and librarians to seamlessly publish institutional research work and facilitates the discovery, citation, and tracking of the publications and underlying datasets via unique identifiers.
Esploro enhances the discoverability of research outputs and data by including the complete set of metadata for each research asset, along with its identifier. When any change is made to research outputs in the Esploro system, the metadata in the DataCite platform is automatically updated.
Liz Krznarich, Adoption Manager at DataCite, commented, "We are pleased to welcome Ex Libris as a DataCite service provider. Achieving service provider certification signifies not only that Esploro's integration with DataCite exemplifies best practices, but also that Ex Libris is an active participant in the community of all those striving to make research outputs discoverable, citable, and connected through interoperable standards and technologies."
Nadav Doron, Ex Libris vice president of research information management solutions, commented, "Our collaboration with DataCite is an important step for us in supporting the interoperability of data and systems in the research ecosystem and helping our customers comply with the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) guidelines. With the Ex Libris-DataCite partnership, research outputs are easily discoverable and accessible. In a single click, customers can now obtain DOIs, leveraging Esploro's rich, up-to-date metadata."
