Call for new PCC Identity Management Advisory Committee members

The newly-approved PCC Identity Management Advisory Committee (IMAC)
launched by the Policy Committee earlier this month and is now looking for
new members.


As many of you may know, the latest two PCC Strategic Directions documents (
<http://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/about/PCC-Strategic-Plan-2015-2017.pdf> SD3 and
SD4) have called for leading a shift from text string based authority work,
largely applicable within the library realm, to minting identifiers and
managing identities, serving numerous new purposes and done in
collaboration with new partners.

The PCC Task Group on Identity Management in NACO since its establishment
in March 2016 has pursued these goals through education, presentations, a
published article, identification of issues plus resolutions to these
challenges, and pilots to explore the feasibility of working in different
registries.  As the most recent Strategic Directions document exhorted, the
PCC needs to “Accelerate the movement toward ubiquitous identifier creation
and identity management at the network level.”  To better reflect the
longer-term nature of the work and energies involved in this paradigm
shift, as well as the significant PCC focus on identity management work,
the Identity Management Advisory Committee (IMAC) was formed in June 2022.

If you are interested in joining IMAC and contributing to its work, please
let John Riemer <jriemer at library.ucla.edu> or Jennifer Liss
<jaliss at indiana.edu> know *by August 1, 2022,* by sending your name and a
few sentences about your interest and experience.

Those who are not currently PCC members or who have experience with ISNI,
Wikidata, ORCID, or other registries are strongly encouraged to volunteer.

On behalf of PCC IMAC
