    • 2020-10-02 - JAK sent a note to LTS Directors; no concerns raised. We did start a conversation around LTS' role in external data within Blacklight (or SOLR) and whether there should be a role for LTS but this is side-lined as we do other planning / higher-priority tasks. Can mark this as DONE
  • Jason Kovari and Steven Folsom  to explore where/how/if a discogs id might be added to MARC that would then be used in place of dynamic search to find a matching record (and coordinate with Tracey re. best practice). Would be used to override dynamic search

    • Huda KhanTim Worrall - Make sure the live demo meets the Discogs API terms of service in terms of linking and ack.

    • Huda Khan to discuss with Adam having a meeting with User Reps sometime after Oct 5
    • Tim Worrall to look into how we might display some language pointing out what data is not used in search. For example, what if a user sees the record label in Discogs data and then tries searching on that (which they can't)? Per Tracey suggestion
