New Controlled Vocabulary Option in License Term Types
When adding a new license term in Manage License Terms (Configuration Menu > Acquisitions > Licenses > Manage License Terms), you now have the option to create the term with a license term type of Controlled Vocabulary. There is also an option to add the values for the controlled vocabulary field directly in the License Term Controlled Vocabulary mapping table (Configuration Menu > Acquisitions > Licenses > License Term Controlled Vocabulary). The controlled vocabulary option allows you to define your own custom list of values for the license term field that you add.
When a license term is added with this license term type, the license term will display in the section defined in the License Section field. The codes defined in the license term values will populate the field's drop-down list.
For more information on configuring a controlled vocabulary license term, see Managing License Terms.
