As a research administrator, I wish to use a broader variety of measures to assess impact including repository metrics and incorporate them in my reports that assess the impact of the research I support.
As a repository manager, I want to be able to access the metadata in my repository in real time through an API in order to build views or services on any platform using the data.

As a scholar or institution, I want my research outputs to be available over the long term and remain as a permanent part of the scholarly record.
As a human or machine user, I want to easily and uniformly identify the metadata in a repository record, so that I can ascertain the relevance of the resource.
As a web reference manager, annotation tool, or crawler, when I encounter a landing page or any other web resource that is part of a scholarly object, I need to easily identify the associated persistent HTTP URI for the resource, so that I can retrieve it.
