Identity parade: building web portals about people
Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is to look at the current state of initiatives to develop "people-centred" portals by repurposing name authority data from union catalogues and similar sources. Design/methodology/approach ‐ A range of current projects and services are reviewed and evaluated to identify common features and trends. Findings ‐ Several recent efforts in this area are of considerable interest and promise, but there are elements of this kind of service that will need further development and experimentation. Originality/value ‐ This is one of the first attempts to give an overview of this type of initiative and to suggest some directions for the future.
