Are DOI names appropriate for use with non-public material such as a report that may never be published?
Yes. The DOI System is designed principally for interoperability, which implies use by many users who aren’t intimately connected (many organizations assign URLs to their internal documents for similar reasons). The key functionalities of the DOI System (persistence, interoperability, extensibility, efficiency, dynamic updating) may well be useful for internal systems. If you’re going to manage information, then some level of identification and metadata is going to be necessary. Use of the DOI System can offer an off-the-shelf means of doing so by removing the need to develop a one-off solution which would not necessarily integrate with other systems, and make it very easy to make the document public later if this is appropriate.
- Does GSA, DLA, and GPO report quantities of AP material distributed that DO NOT contain the appropriate amount of recovered material - or do we need to in the annual EORS report?
