Follow-up WG on PID Kernel Information Profiles

05 Jun 2019

Dear colleagues,
the discussions at the PID Kernel Information session at the RDA P13
indicated that there is more work to be done to further define PID
Kernel Information profiles, mechanisms to manage and govern them, and
further build the technical connections to related essential components,
notably a profile registry that can be built potentially on top of the
Data Type Registry.
Therefore, we (myself, Beth Plale and Jens Klump) have drafted a new
case statement, which we would like to submit to RDA to establish a
follow-up WG. We would like to encourage you to comment on the case
statement and join as supporter. If all goes well, we will likely be
able to set up the group as a direct follow-up, re-using the lists and
group forums. Nonetheless, RDA procedures require us to submit a full
case statement and indicate support by the group membership.
The case statement is attached and also here:
Concerning the timeline, we wish to head for a first session at P14, and
would thus like to submit the case statement to RDA for formal
endorsement before end of June. Your input until then will be essential
to get the scope right and meet essential user benefits and other
stakeholder requirements.
Best, Tobias
