Stellenbosch University has implemented an integration with ORCID in 2016. By connecting clients’ ORCID IDs to their Stellenbosch University identities, University enables future integrations with ORCID, such as the institutional repository, SUNScholar. Marié Roux, Manager for Research Impact Services at Stellenbosch University Library and Information Service, provides an overview of how the integration was set up.
A comparison between how many ORCID IDs exist at the different institutions of the South African ORCID Consortium is also included. Marketing holds a key to the success of the integration and therefore a summary and examples of marketing activities are listed. Lastly all the challenges, which come with this project are also addressed, for example effective communication across campus, software developments and other marketing strategies: https://or2020.sun.ac.za/2020/06/01/stellenbosch-universitys-orcid-integration-the-highs-and-the-lows/ (this poster was presented at the OR2020 Virtual Conference on June 1-5, 2020).
