11 Link to an Identity using a persistent URL Two forms: Feel free to try to hack your own URLs, but youre unlikely to get a hit unless you happen to have an LCCN

13 Search for an Identity using the NameFinder The reverse form is accepted: fullName=levan,+ralph Use corporateName to restrict to corporate names Use familyName and firstName if you have a tricky 2-part last name

14 NameFinder Results Record LeVan, Ralph R. /identities/np-levan, ralph r np-levan, ralph r An architecture for scholarly… personal

15 NameFinder Results maxList (an optional parm on the request) is probably misnamed. It is actually the minimum number of names to return. Results are grouped by type and ranked within each type by a formula that combines usage and score.

16 NameFinder Result Types Types, in order of appearance, are: ExactMatchesWithDates ExactMatches ExactNameParts FuzzyFirstName FuzzyFamilyName FuzzyName FreeTextName
