I know the the RA and Dec of my source, but I'm not sure what the survey-team prescribed name is?
Use the cone search to retrieve all sources in Data Central around a set of coordinates.

I have a different source name (e.g., 3c35). How do I find the survey-team prescribed name?
Use the external name resolver to get a set of coordinates, then use the cone search to find coverage within Data Central.
