Preliminary Authority Records

Just what does it take to upgrade a preliminary authority record? I ask because there are some about 25 years old that are still preliminary.

n 83827701
Space Age Astronomy Symposium (1961 : Pasadena, Calif.)

or

n 83827385
Solar Spectrum Symposium (1963 : Rijksuniversiteit te Utrecht)

I'm assuming the first citation is somehow associated with MPOW. We definitely want to update and extend our work with name and conference authorities associated with Caltech. It will be interesting to find out the answer to your question.

The question itself gives me food for thought identifying use cases for the RLG/OCLC prototype "identity hub."
