Documenting Identifiers for Humans and Machines

Getting people to adopt standard identifiers is hard. We make it harder by not documenting or describing them in useful ways. How do I choose between a UPRN, UARN or UDPRN? What even are they?

Getting machines to do things with identifiers is hard for similar reasons. How can we make it easier for them to find, index and convert between identifiers?

In this talk, we'll have a look at some of the issues and discuss some useful ways forward.
