This session will provide a point for discussion around the use of an external service (the Throughput Widget) to support metadata enhancement for data repositories. The Throughput Annotation Database is a service that connects data records, code repositories, publications and databases across the internet, using unique identifiers to link these elements. Throughput is searchable through an API and an online user interface that exposes these links. One key use case for Throughput is allowing users to indirectly annotate data records on the web through the Throughput Widget. This widget uses an individual’s ORCID as an identifier and allows them to associate a text annotation to a dataset or data element on an organization’s home page once that organization enables the widget.
