Discussion: How to handle sources for data in Core
Submitted by idfg-bthomas on January 17, 2011 - 12:13pm
Currently we are using NODE.XID and VERSION_Usage.XID to track referential integrity between source Primary Keys (PK) and Core. We do not, however, have a standard way to track what source this maps.
I propose adding two new vocabularies to VOCAB.
On top of this we could then map sources to schemas for transformations, or something like this in the future.
I am opening this up for discussion because I am not sure this is the correct path as my experience with data transformations is somewhat limited and I know bstuder, ebrown and charrington all have experience working with sources/citations here that may provide valueable insight. Thoughts?
