The OCLC Research WorldCat Identities project is ending. The work provided valuable insight into how to mine bibliographic data for insight into the People and Organizations that create and serve as subjects library materials. The findings demonstrated the power of data mining over the world’s largest set of bibliographic metadata and highlighted the value of collaborative collective cataloging. The WorldCat Identities data has positively impacted OCLC’s work to build the WorldCat Entities application and the 150 million Person and Work descriptions accessible through it. This work will continue to build our entity ecosystem to support the future knowledge work of librarians.

The WorldCat Identities web application will be retired and shut down in the coming months and the data is no longer being updated. The most recent version of the data is from July of 2022. As OCLC continues to build out the WorldCat Entities ecosystem, please use it as a source for persistent Person identifiers.

"High quality decay data are an essential input across a wide range of nuclear applications, and none more so than in the case of the actinides and their related decay chain data. Well defined nuclear data are essential to ensure safe procedures within mining operations, various nuclear fuel cycles for energy generation, environmental monitoring, specific analytical techniques, and diagnostic and radiotherapeutic treatments in nuclear medicine. A major objective of the IAEA nuclear data programme is to promote improvements in the accuracy and quality of nuclear data used in science and technology. The contents of this report constitute the results of a coordinated research project established to assemble an updated decay data library for actinides. Recommended half-lives and decay scheme data have been comprehensively evaluated, and are tabulated in terms of a carefully selected set of actinide radionuclides"--Publisher's description
