    Hi Maggie,
    I like this idea. I also copy Matt Mayernik, who is leading a similar session at ESIP in July. The session will explore the overall PID landscape (in Earth science) and examine use case for different types of PIDs. This could inform an RDA session..

    Hi all,
    As Mark said, we will be conducting a session titled “Persistent
    Identifiers: Use Cases and PID Types” at the ESIP meeting in July. As of
    now, I plan to be at the IDW meeting this fall, so would be happy to
    participate in a RDA session that builds on this topic. Here is the ESIP
    session summary, which has a few more details about our goals and hoped-for
    Our basic premise is that the PID ecosystem is large and expanding, and
    many use cases exist for PIDs. But not all PID systems are equally
    applicable to all use cases. So we are hoping to get some traction on
    better understanding which PIDs are most appropriate for different use
    Best regards,
