World Bank notes from 12/03/2012 meeting

We looked over the issues in the ingestion of WB bibliographic records and came to the conclusion that we had best ask them a few more questions before proceeding. Stefano can send these questions out (better phrased) to follow up on the previous mail. Or we could clean up the spreadsheet a bit and send them that.

-- SCOPE, how are records selected that they think are of interest to us? It would be good to have a clear idea of the selection process for the records they feel are "agriculture" related.

-- World Bank noted that they were "retagging" resources. Does this mean we should wait so that we get records with more precise keywords?

-- Who can we list as the Corporate Author? Should it be World Bank or should we use the value found in the Unit Owning/Responsible field?

-- Personal Author - approximately half the records we found have no author. Do we just live with the Corporate Author field in this case?

-- Publisher - can we consider the Publisher to be World Bank for all records?

-- World Bank's Report Name and Report Number fields, is this a 1:1 relationship, i.e. 1 report number attached to 1 resource or can multiple resources be attached to 1 report (1:n) ?

-- Date Issued - should we use World Bank's Disclosure Date or Document Date for this field?

-- Document Version - Does the presence of this field mean that we could get two records where only the version number differs? If so we might need to add this to the title?
