The NAAN part, following the "ark:" label, uniquely identifies the organization that assigned the Name part. Often the initial access provider (the first NMA) coincides with the original namer (represented by the NAAN), however, access may be provided by one or more different entities instead of or in addition to the original naming authority. The NAAN used in the anatomy diagram here, 13030, represents the California Digital Library.
