Authority and controlled lists related to the metadata fields of AMS records can be managed in the Lists module. In order to manitain the entities and their relations in an easiy and transparent manner, you can search, see and edit entities being already saved to the database during the procession work:

Two types of Lists available in this module:

  • Authority List: A defined set of data which act like standalone entities (like: People, Organisations). They can have their own set of metadata (like: place of birth, geo coordinates, etc.) and they can also be linked to different data registers (VIAF, Wikipedia, Library of Congress subject headings).
  • Controlled List: Pre-defined set of data. It provides controlled vocabulary for select boxes, multi-select boxes, where free data entry is not allowed.
