External Identifiers

  • Continuing the discussion - reviewing document at
  • Reviewed proposal for 3.20.5 and 3.20.6 with Kate
    • Discussed single line with parsed fields vs. multiple fields
    • If multiple fields, it should be broken into multiple subsections
    • If single line, we could have the repository location at the end then we only need to worry about allowing spaces in the ID itself
      • We could not come up with any examples of ID's with spaces, but we were all nervous that such a schema for ID naming could exist
    • Discussed multiple fields
      • Order of the section - should type come first or should ID?
      • Now that they are multiple fields, what should the cardinality be (e.g. multiple ID's under the same type)?
    • Kate will think about the proposed changes and we will discuss next week
