From Last Week

  • All - Gather links to existing change management approaches and documentation.  Add links and descriptions in Existing Change Management Approaches working document.
  • Nancy Fallgren - Add description of how MeSH conveys Deletes to downstream users.
  • Jesse Lambertson - Look for an ontology oriented toward documenting changes (e.g. add, delete, etc.)
  • Vitus Tang - Document current notifications received from 3rd party vendor when a previously requested entity that wasn't available becomes available from the authority provider.

This Week

  • TBD


  • Additional Agenda Items (for future meetings)

Meeting Materials


Recording: Change Management Types of Change: DELETE, DEPRECATION (2021-06-21)


Notes were taken directly in the Types of Changes and other working documents.

Future Topics

  • Notification to a single institution when a requested entity that was missing becomes available.  This will likely be outside the main change management stream.
  • Value of diagraming to express changes as a means of conveying information around where data is being produced, where it goes, etc.
  • Partial splits and partial merges.
