dc.description.abstract The focus of the presentation is the analysis of name authority control in the Florida Southern College Digital Repository to determine the extent to which faculty researchers are represented in researcher identifier databases. A purposive sample of 50 faculty authors were compared against five different databases: Library of Congress Name Authority File (LCNAF), Scopus, Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID), Virtual International Authority File (VIAF), and International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI). The findings show that while LCNAF and Scopus results are comparable, the difference in the ORCID, VIAF, and ISNI are considerable. Additionally, the results show that the majority of authors are represented in two or three external databases. This has implications for enhancing local authority data by linking to external identifier authority data to augment institutional repository metadata. en_US
