Archival Resource Keys (ARKs) Expression of Interest (EOI) Form
California Digital Library (CDL) and DuraSpace are pleased to announced a collaboration aimed at building an open, international community around Archival Resource Keys (ARKs) and their use as persistent identifiers in the open scholarly ecosystem.

Since 2001, CDL has served as the incubator for ARK infrastructure, consisting primarily of the specification, a registry of organizations using ARKs, and a global resolver service. Now, to achieve long-term sustainability, the ARK infrastructure must emerge from CDL and mature in partnership with multiple organizations and community participants to guide its future.

ARK outreach efforts will include:

- Assembling and consulting with an ARK advisory group,
- Developing procedures for shared maintenance of the organizational registry,
- Consulting with the wider ARK community on requirements, priorities and models for shared community and infrastructure management,
- Guiding the ARK specification through the IETF Informational RFC process, as well as,
- Participating in an initiative to gauge the scope of ARK usage world-wide.

If you’d like to be express interest in these initiatives, please fill out the form below.
