A note is defined in MODS as just a string/unstructured text. Here is no authorityURI or valueURI as attributes in the schema. If you want to bring out the owner of a resource, use <name> with a role, e.g.
<name valueURI="http://d-nb.info/gnd/118677446" authorityURI="http://d-nb.info/gnd/">
<role><roleTerm type="code" authority="marcrelator">own</roleTerm></role>
(assuming it is ownership you are trying to convey; there are other roles relevant to provenance in the MARC relator list).
We could also use authorityURI and valueURI (http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/own) under role in this example with the appropriate values from id.loc.gov/. Or could use type="text".

Subject: [MODS] mods:note[type="ownership"] with authority data numbers on people
Dear MODS mailing list subscribers,
I have a problem how to add authority data IDs (especially valueURIs) in copy specific provenance information according to MODS SCHEMA. The following example produces a MODS SCHEMA validation report:
MODS SCHEMA validation report:
- Attribute 'authority' is not allowed to appear in element 'mods:note'.
- Attribute 'authorityURI' is not allowed to appear in element 'mods:note'.
- Attribute 'valueURI' is not allowed to appear in element 'mods:note'.
I would love to know if there is already any solution in MODS format or whether there are plans to correctly provide authority data IDs in provenance information.
