Authority data has always been at the core of library catalogues. Today, authority data is reference data on a wider scale. The former authorities of the “Sudoc” union catalogue mutated into “IdRef”, a read/write platform of open data and services which seeks to become a national supplier of reliable identifiers for French universities. To support their dissemination and comply with high quality standards, Paprika and Qualinka have been added to our toolbox, to expedite the massive and secure linking of scientific publications to IdRef authorities.


The authors would like to thank the researchers and engineers of the GraphIK team for their fruitful, friendly and stimulating collaboration: Michel Leclère, Michel Chein, Alain Guttierez, Clément Sipieter and Brett Choquet. We thank ANR for funding the Qualinca project.
