Data access

Test Objects

(via Pubby)
This is a great start, we should turn it into Test Cases:

  • describing what to watch for - done
  • providing links to pubby, TTL, VUFind, Lido, and in the future RS - Pubby has link (top right) to collection object VuFind that contains both XML LIDO and RDF, TTL is all on Box for now.

Matching Authorities

YCBA Examples with URIs to authorities that could be used in matching RS records. These will be used in demonstrations.

  • A nice complicated case!
  • A print made by Samuel Palmer (1805-1881) that was completed by Alfred Herbert Palmer (1853-1931), who also has the role of printmaker.  
  • Date: plate etched between ca. 1880 and 1883; impression printed in 1924.  This is problematic because the dates of 2 production events (printmaking and printing) that happened at different times are conflated into one data field.  As the data stands and is indexed (1875 to 1923) it seems that the production event carried on continuously for 48 years, which is not the case because we know nothing happened in 1900 for example.
