File: Authorities, identifiers, entities - The expansion of repositories

The volume and diversity of metadata circulating in information systems (in higher education, research, culture) require a rethinking of the role of authority repositories. Regarded as trusted data at the service of the development of open data and the semantic web, they constitute a precious capital, a guarantee of independence, while questioning in depth classical cataloguing practices.
