either a bcdc_record object (from the result of bcdc_get_record()), a character string denoting the name or ID of a resource (or the URL) or a BC Geographic Warehouse (BCGW) name.

It is advised to use the permanent ID for a record or the BCGW name rather than the human-readable name to guard against future name changes of the record. If you use the human-readable name a warning will be issued once per session. You can silence these warnings altogether by setting an option: options("silence_named_get_data_warning" = TRUE) - which you can set in your .Rprofile file so the option persists across sessions.
