Sample record input

1. Database records submitted by participating organizations

among these, kwdi9805.csv and kwdi9807.csv would be a good sample to look at.
(NOTE that first line used for "label" to define the sequence of the datafields of the records being sent.)
These are in csv (comma separated) format. but tab separated text is more preferable)

2. keywords (korean vs english) submitted by Young-Joo --

new keywords appearing in submitted records were translated by Young-Joo to give equivalents in korean and english. they were also provided as tab separated text and in ms excell file.

NOTE: not applicable for phase II of the project since we will be working on keywords translation separately. This part of the project is currently nicknamed as "thesaurus".
