People are a uniquely pervasive nexus, linking the inputs, activities, and outputs of research over time and thus enabling their discovery through contextual relationships with other people, organizations, and events. However, an artificial separation between information about people and information about the research resources they use has evolved in institutional information systems. This lack of interoperability has recently been recognized as impairing the efficiency and effectiveness of research. The impairment stems not only from the overall lack of discoverability, but also from the lack of connectivity between systems for managing information about people and those, if any, that gather and maintain information about research resources. The lack of data integration is compounded when working across institutions, where local needs may dictate inconsistent approaches to data collection, management, and display.
