While composing a template and recommendations for the Darwin Core fields
to supply for the BioFresh project
<http://www.freshwaterbiodiversity.eu/>, similar to what Peter Desmet did
for herbaria in Apple Core <http://code.google.com/p/applecore/>, I came
across a number of terms which I haven't yet completely understood and
hope to get some feedback on from this community.
Two of these terms are:
InstitutionCode - InstitutionID
The name (or acronym) in use by the institution having custody of the
object(s) or information referred to in the record. / An identifier for
the institution having custody of the object(s) or information referred to
in the record.
I guess that the latter term is supposed to be a DOI/GUID for the
institute, but am wondering if there is such a thing or whether this field
is rather for internal database purposes?
Any advise would be appreciated!
With best regards,
