Hi, Daniel. You can include a unique ID in an @xlink:href attribute on the <cpfRelation> element. We have a little tool, the RAMP editor, that helps automate the process of adding VIAF IDs to <cpfRelation> elements: Let me know if you have any questions!

I ran into a snag while trying to create some EAC-CPF records. I have VIAF IDs and URLs that I would like to include inside of the cpfRelation, but I don't know where to put them. It seems like I am not allowed to add a "<scources>" tag inside the cpfRelation. Is there anywhere else I can put this information?

Thanks for your help,
