The ALCTS Metadata Interest Group seeks proposals for presentations for the program “Multiple Identities: Managing Authorities in Repositories and Digital Collections” at the ALA Annual Meeting 2013 in Chicago, IL. This program is scheduled on 6/29 at 4:30-5:30 pm and will feature two 30 minute presentations with time for questions.
This program will discuss existing implementations of authority control outside of traditional systems, such as repositories and digital collection management systems.
Presenters will demonstrate current implementations of controlled access points outside of traditional cataloging in institutional repositories or digital collection systems, potentially including linked data authorities and researcher identity registries.

Proposal ideas could include:

- Linked data authorities implementation in repositories or digital collections  (e.g VIAF, LC Linked Data Service, etc.)
- Implementations of author/researcher identities (e.g. ORCID, ResearcherID) in repositories or digital collections
- Collaborations between the library and other entities, such as authors and other academic departments, related to author or subject creation and maintenance
- Methods of author identity maintenance in an institutional repository
- Demonstrations of controlled authorities implementation for digital collections platforms

All presentations at ALA Annual Chicago 2013 will be recorded. Speaker agreements will be forwarded to all speakers and will require consent for video recording.

The deadline for proposals is February 26, 2013.
