Citation Author

When you upload a resource the author for the resource must have a NEEShub account. However if you are linking to a resource outside the NEEShub (for example something on a web page at USGS)the author should be USGS. We need the capability to define an author separately from the contributor that is not a NEEShub member.

See for example the citation for this resource

Jared Gray West (2010), “Swing in Time,” http://nees.org/education/academy-resources/586.

Jared did not author this resource, he only contributed it. It is not appropriate for people to cite him when using this resource. This same issue is true for contribution of tools.

    Both author field and date have to be made independent of the upload event (creator of resource is listed as author and the date of upload as creation date) We need creation date field anyway. Check box or radio button can help with elimination of unnecessary duplication of data entry (when the creator of resource and author are the same people)
