Examples

Analysis

For Francisco Canaro there is only one entry and this is linked to several national libraries:

http://viaf.org/viaf/27258948/

Linking with other sources is logged:

In the About section there is also an ISNI : "ISNI - 0000 0000 6636 3497" (IIRC a natural person can have several ISNI, e.g. one for each pseudonym)

The IPI as found in CISAC or SADAIC is not stated.

For Mario Canaro there are two VIAF entries, similar for other brothers, and no ISNI is stated.

So VIAF offers Permalinks, but the attached records may change. Maybe VIAF will link one Permalink with another Permalink, which would increase the usefulness of linking from tango.info to VIAF.
