ARK Alliance 2021 wrap up

With a record 187 new institutions registered in 2021 (up from 113 in 2020), it has been another banner year for the ARK community. The Louvre museum and Frick Collection joined, a new ARK plugin for OJS was announced, and the ARK origin story went online. We are also delighted, as of yesterday, to now be a member of the NDSA, a consortium of 264 partnering organizations committed to the long-term preservation of digital information.

The ARK Alliance community comprises institutions and people who use ARK identifiers as well as those interested in promoting and sustaining the open ARK standards, best practices, and global N2T.net resolver.

We have active working groups for outreach, technical specs, and registering new institutions that want to create ARKs. Two new curators stepped forward this year to help manage the registry and we are always open to wider participation. Please let us know if you would like to become involved in our working groups!

Here is the December 2021 ARKs snapshot:

  • Organizations registered to assign ARKs: 877
  • Known number of ARKs in the world: 8.2 billion
  • Amount paid for the right to create ARKs: $0
  • Average resolutions per day by N2T.net in 2021: 152,350

We will close with a list of the 187 institutions that were newly registered in 2021 to assign ARKs, in the order that they arrived.

Happy New Year!
