More and more government agencies require researchers/scientists to have ORCID iD when they apply for government sponsored research. But ORCID iD is for real world object. Please use $1 real world object for ORCID iD for Alma search indexes for MARC21 100, 600, 700 fields. The current Alma search indexes incorrectly support $0 for ORCID iD in MARC21 100, 600, and 700. This error needs to be corrected.

Agree that $1 for ORCID (Real World Object URI) needs to be indexed in Alma. Probably Ex Libris should leave indexing for $0 containing ORCID if it has been used in existing records. It may take time for that to get straightened out.
Why not ask for same treatment for indexing ISNI RWO URI in $1 as well as $0. ISNI supports linked data as well.
Perhaps this should be a separate enhancement, but indexing $0 and $1 subfields in general (External identifiers/URIs?) would probably be appreciated as we go forward with library linked data development and its impacts on MARC.
