I am aware of two things (and we are not settled on what to use for a
similar task, so I am keen on reading up on the other suggestions), but
both involve an instance of eXist database:
dbtagger by Alexander Erhard - https://github.com/aerhard/dbTagger
ediarum by BBAW - https://github.com/telota/ediarum/wiki
I have seen the ediarum work very well, but since I have not yet managed
to get myself into the Java routines that they have developed for oXygen
for the very purpose you mentioned, I have for now tried mostly to adapt
dbtagger to our needs. To this end, I have written some functions that
manage a data roundtrip between a google spreadsheet where we can
maintain personography info and authority db id numbers, our eXist
database and dbtagger which brings this back into oXygen.
I have started to document this and a first glimpse can be gotten at
(Note to self: Get the documentation done!)
As I said, I am looking forward to seeing other approaches/solutions, too.
