"Cornell is a founding member of ORCID, committed to the ORCID vision “where all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions across disciplines, borders, and time.”
Cornell runs and operates arXiv.org, where authors can authenticate and link their ORCID iD to their author page. Before ORCID was created, arXiv.org used local identifiers and had 15,000 local author identifiers created and claimed in the first six years of platform use. In early 2015, they introduced the ability to connect to ORCID iD instead, and arXiv.org has seen a very rapid adoption that has continued to this day, with over 63,000 connections to author ORCID iDs within a few years. This accelerated uptake of ORCID shows understanding among the research community that a universal identifier is better than a local identifier. Local identifiers in arXiv.org are now deprecated, and only ORCID is used now....
Out of the thousands of ORCID iDs that claim to be affiliated with Cornell, only 672 are so far connected with their Cornell NetID through the ORCID authentication process. This means that more promotion and outreach is needed to get more people to connect, which is a common theme among research institutions adopting ORCID in the US...."
