Data provenance

Joho the Blog points out Authorial authoritative provenance. “Jon Udell blogs about Lorcan Dempsey's blogging of the OCLC's fuzzy matching service that searches the Library of Congress Name Authority File, finding misspelled authors' names, etc. Jon discovered that his own name was misspelled in the Authority File, and he explains the process for getting it corrected. And, Jon says, we should be making provenance and ways to correct provenance more explicit.”
