The National Library has built a new service called People Australia that will allow users to discover the resources people and organisations create along with related contextual information. People Australia has the potential to benefit the Australian research community by creating profiles for researchers and research teams and persistently identifying them. This presentation will provide an overview of People Australia and detail how People Australia is being used to support the identification of researchers in the NicNames project.
Presented at the Biometrics Conference, Brisbane, Australia, 16-17 April, 2009.
