    MD Editor Controlled Vocabulary - Subfield showing a Prepopulated List

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Alma

    Question

    In the Metadata Editor the mouse hovered on 245 $$h and got a list of possible candidates (a prepopulated list).
    See attached picture
    Where is it defined? Is it hardcoded / controlled by Ex Libris -- or configurable?

    Answer

    Alma supports validation of subfield values based on a controlled vocabulary (a list of acceptable values for that subfield).

    The controlled vocabulary is available via the Resource Management Configuration Menu > Cataloging > Controlled Vocabulary Registry.

    Here you can edit for example the table called “245H-OTB” description “245 h”.
