just one more idea Maybe will be useful also for FOSS.
What about integration of 'Authority Control' with OA repositories. In
multilingual environment (which must be common for eIFL countries), the same
author could deposit articles in different languages, writing his/her name
in various scripts. For full retrieval it is necessary to gather all
variations under one main entry.
Do we have any solutions for this? Is it possible to include 'Authority
Control within OA repositories' as a subject for the 'themed week'?
