  • Authority Lookups for Sinopia (Lookup infrastructure:, Authority requests:
    • The spreadsheet for sub-authority lookup configuration has different sets of context properties for different sub-authorities. Currently the QA configuration doesn't support this so Lynette is working on getting the superset of context properties for each authority. Later work could either have Sinopia configuration to subset this data, or there could be more configuration in QA. See
    • Work to get context is not currently integrated into Sinopia. Huda will work to get a draft PR to add context in and seek review from the Sinopia team
    • Lynette will have to back off LD4P somewhat in the next few week to focus on other priorities. Will today try to work through as much extended context as possible, create tickets for Steven and Dave as appropriate. A number of auths already return extended context so this won't be a blocked to getting something showing in Sinopia
    • ISNI now have a test LD API and Michelle/Christine are looking at it
  • Prep for Cataloging Sinatra and other 45's (Discogs data,
    • ON HOLD pending more work in Sinopia to import data. Sinopia work through work cycle 4 will include the ability to read in RDF back from Trellis. We hope that we can leverage this to import RDF from a lookup in Discogs or ShareVDE
