Data Analysis report and mappings

Posted in reports by Amanda Hill on 8 April, 2008

One of the main deliverables for the first phase of the Names project was a report on the data requirements for the prototype that is now under development. This involved creating mappings from a variety of name authority standards to a data structure based on the entities defined by the Functional Requirements for Authority Data. The work was undertaken by Alan Danskin at the British Library and the report and the FRAD mappings are now available from the Names project’s documents page. The standards that were mapped were:

  • International Standard for Archival Authority Records: Corporate and Family Names (ISAAR-CPF)
  • MARC 21 Format for Authority Data
  • Scholarly Works Application Profile (SWAP)
  • UK PubMed Central’s grantee database (National Library of Medicine DTD)
