CrossRef and the CDL Partner to Increase Discoverability

CrossRef signed an agreement with the CDL (California Digital Library) that allows library publishers to participate in CrossRef’s scholarly communications hub. Now publishers using the CDL’s EZID digital identifier service can choose to deposit their metadata in CrossRef, which gives them access to CrossRef services such as search and discovery, persistent linking, and text and data mining.

“By collaborating, EZID and CrossRef make it easier for everyone to find information about and use services for scholarly content,” says Ed Pentz, CrossRef’s executive director.

According to Catherine Mitchell, director of the Access & Publishing Group at the CDL, “The inclusion of our Open Access publications in new discovery services via CrossRef, particularly its metadata feed, will dramatically increase the exposure of the important scholarship published on our platform.”
