I've registered for this meeting - it's just up the road from me.  (Also
for the Linked Pasts meeting in Madrid the following week - don't these
people ever talk to each other? :-))

I’m writing to invite you to a *workshop on* the potential of *persistent
identifiers in the humanities* with a focus on History. The workshop will
take place in London at the British Library on Friday 9th December.

*   Persistent identifiers (PIDs) are increasingly embedded in the services
that researchers use every day, enabling unambiguous attribution of the
full range of scholarly outputs. This makes it easier for data producers
and researchers to get credit for their contributions; for data centres,
universities and funders to track the impact of the research they
facilitate; for publishers to incorporate data into scholarly writing; and
for researchers to discover and cite data with clear provenance.   Uptake
in the humanities, however, lags behind other disciplines. We are running a
series of workshops to better understand the potential for persistent
identifier services in the humanities, identify barriers to uptake and
create a roadmap to guide future development.   It would be great if you or
someone from your team could participate. If you would like to recommend
someone to attend, please let us know and we will try to extend an
invitation.   Attendance is free, but places are limited so that we can
have an active and open discussion. Please register by Thursday 3 November
<https://thor_pidsinhumanities.eventbrite.com/>  so that we can arrange
catering and plan appropriately.   The workshop is organised through the
EU-funded THOR project (https://project-thor.eu/
<https://project-thor.eu/>).   If you have any questions, please send
enquiries to events at project-thor.eu <events at project-thor.eu>.   Kind
regards, Dr Adam Farquhar Head of Digital Scholarship, The British Library
THOR Project Coordinator     *
