    • Dave has JSPs with exact match implemented and they check out, is moving them into production JSPs soon
    • Lots of work on to get around bugs in LC data – ids in the data sometimes have a space between n and number, but the URIs don't, so this needs special handling in order to generate the URI from the id – LC have acknowledged the error but we don't know when it might get fixed (exchange in authorities slack), Lynette will follow up on the official listserv
    • Next focus if getting context data per Steven's spreadsheet
    • Steven is working on ldpaths in the spreadsheet and has completed most of the first 9 tabs; notes and many are complex (MeSH and LC), some of the others will be easier
