Smithsonian Institution has danced around identifiers in the various units and departments that make up the largest research/museum complex. But when we got the green light to go open access, the dance steps got more complicated. Staff across the Institution came together for a beautifully choreographed performance. Smithsonian leaped into the arms of GUIDs and now uses ARKs, DOIs, RORs, and maybe a few others. Yes, we had a few missteps, still missing a few moves, and maybe a toe or two were stepped on but we are proud of our show.
