- Defined in:
Validate scope to CollectionObject, CollectingEvent at present
The Local Identifier used in the specimen (collection object) accession process. It may be attached to a CollectionObject or a CollectingEvent.
The canonical use is within a workflow that includes collecting, labelling, and curating a specimen, i.e. the process that brings specimens into a collection.
AccessionCodes are not meant to act as CatalogNumbers; in that sense, they annotate a process that happens prior to a CollectionObject receiving a CatalogNumber
