EZID is a tool that enables you to generate and manage long-term identifiers for your digital content. The tool is free for UC-Berkeley affiliates and is managed by the California Digital Library.
Use EZID for the following purposes:
- create identifiers for anything: text, data, bones, terms, etc
- manage your research objects with shareable, unbreakable links
- store citation information for the objects in a variety of formats
- fit identifiers into your automated workflows with a standards-based API
