I’m new to Ruby on Rails and I’ve been really enjoying the framework.
I have recently hit a wall that I can’t seem to get around. I’ve

My problem: I have a CSV file that has information about recreation
programs, and the buildings that each program is housed in. It is in
a one line format.
Building name | Location | Program name | Description of program |

migrations and FasterCSV. There are duplicate entries for buildings,
and I only want each building entered into the database once, which I
could use validates uniqueness to ensure.
The wall I’ve encountered is how do I maintain the relationship
