Both the Handle and the DOI are systems of identification of digital objects that allow to assign one PURL ("persistent uniform resource locator") to electronic documents (books, magazine articles, congresses, teaching materials, etc.).
El Handle system is a system developed by the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI) which allows the provision of persistent identifiers to existing information resources on the web (books, chapters, magazines, articles, graphics, videos, etc.).
Each Handle is formed by a prefix that identifies the producer of the identifier (editorial, company, institutional repository, etc.), and by a suffix that identifies each one of the digital objects (book, chapter, magazine, article, image, etc.). ).
|Prefix 2099.1||deposit identifier Academic work UPC|
|Sufix 19080||identifier of the final master project deposited in Academic work UPC.|
To be able to locate a document with a Handle identifier, the string can be written in the "http://hdl.handle.net/"followed by the corresponding prefix and suffix, which redirects the user directly to the document:
Alternatively, the existing locator can be used in http://hdl.handle.net/. This locator, in addition to redirecting the user to the document, also offers additional information such as the associated URL.
El Libraries, Publications and Archives Service of the UPC uses the Handle system to identify all objects deposited in UPCommons, set of institutional deposits of the UPC. Therefore, all the documents housed in the various depositories ofUPCommons They automatically receive a Handle that identifies them, guaranteeing their permanent access (permanent URL):
