I have 303 items ready to load (a mix of updates and creations) from the 2016 Ontario public library statistics using QuickStatements. However, to ease updates once 2017 statistics are available, and to support retroactively adding historical data, I would like to be able to include the Ontario library ID during this initial load.

    • David I cannot turn the example IDs into a link, because the IDs are currently stored only in the CSV files that the open data portal makes available for download. This is why I did not provide a formatter URL. Dan scott (talk) 16:09, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
