Team members from OCLC Research, in conjunction with LIBER, have been examining the adoption and integration of persistent identifiers (PIDs) in the evolving ecosystem of research information management in Finland, Germany, and the Netherlands. In this presentation some findings are shared regarding the dynamics around PID adoption, in particular incentives and barriers to adoption:

- Standards & good practice … are modest incentives at best

- Vision can or cannot be convincing

- PIDs get adopted when they solve someone‘s problem

- Data (ingest) workflows drive PID adoption in RIM

- Scaled infrastructure can support PID adoption

- Mandates strongly support PID adoption – but only if culturally acceptable, or will be resisted

- Libraries can help get researchers on board!
