Abstract:

OCLC will deploy a naming system and resolution service for cataloged Internet resources that will assure systematic and reliable access to named resources. The naming scheme will be anchored in the already universally deployed DNS and HyperTextTransport Protocols (HTTP), using the accepted and stable URL syntax. The names, which can be thought of as Persistent URLs (PURLs), can be used both in documents and in cataloging systems, thereby increasing the probability of correct resolution and reducing the burden and expense of catalog maintenance. The goal of global uniqueness is easily met through the central administration of names. The issue of location independence is, with PURLS, met through the consolidation of naming under a stable resolution host with reliable service levels. OCLC is well established as a provider of such service and will recruit partners to support distributed resolution capability.
