I learned about ORCID at the VIVO conference last August, and followed 
up by attending the ORCID Community Outreach meeting two weeks ago. At 
UCLA, we see ORCID as a key service to name disambiguation.

The ORCID organization works effectively with all the constituents by 
defining roles appropriately. First, each researcher controls her own 
ORCID, and can limit the exposure of attributes on the orcid.org site. 
When a research organization assign an ORCID to their community of 
researchers (outlined below), each assignee can opt out if they so 
choose. This feature alone will help us sell the program to our faculty.

Publishers have a critical role. An increasing number of them are 
accepting ORCIDs and including them in the article metadata. When 
publishers expose this metadata attribute, finding an author means 
following a link rather than executing a disambiguation algorithm.

Finally, research organizations can pull these elements together for 
their community of researchers. UCLA signed up for a creator membership, 
which will allow us to bulk assign ORCIDs for all of our researchers. We 
are starting with faculty, but may extend it to graduate students in the 
future.

We are implementing a Drupal module to manage the process. We will 
create Drupal accounts for faculty, and use a drush script (Drupal 
scripting) to assign ORCIDs using a file of faculty campus IDs. The 
script will create a Drupal account, call the ORCID APIs to search for 
an existing ORCID, create a new one when necesssary, and add the ORCID 
as an attribute of the faculty Drupal account. Faculty members will be 
able to retrieve their ORCID from the Library's web site by 
authenticating via Shibboleth.

We also plan to allow faculty and catalogers to add other IDs: Scopus 
and Researcher ID, LC Name Authority, and more.

The point of all of this is to make these identifiers available to 
campus partners. The first two are Opus, a faculty information system 
being developed by the Academic Personnel Office, and CDL's 
implementation of Symplectic Elements to support the open access policy. 
I also hope to convince our campus Shibboleth IdP to add ORCID as a new 
attribute.

I am writing this message from DrupalCon in Austin. Yesterday, our 
contractor met with a programmer from Argonne National Laboratory who is 
working on a Drupal lmodule with more complete ORCID API support. Those 
efforts will be merged so anyone using Drupal will have a set of modules 
to support their requirements.

for a forthcoming Code4Lib Journal proposal.)

For obvious reasons of researcher disambiguation having these different identifiers reported and stored would be beneficial.
