If you use the Internet to manage content or information about assets, you can benefit from using the DOI system. DOI names identify content permanently. And as they are coupled with metadata, they can be modified over time to keep track of the locations and characteristics of the objects they identify, both for you and your users. You benefit from efficient management and accurate tracking, as well as gaining the ability to more easily automate processes and collaborate with partners in your community.

These open meetings include overviews of DOI and its underlying principles and applications, followed by presentations from RAs describing how they have implemented DOI for their industries and giving examples of the applications that have been built.
