All of the NACO partners are now ready to deal with the 034 field in authority records, so the Library of Congress is looking what is needed to test this data. One area is codes for sources of data. Below is a very short list some sources for coordinates: I am looking for other suggestions. At this point, we are not worried about what the code will be, just defining a source of data. Please send any ideas you have to the list; hopefully this will give us a beginning set of codes.
