The setup for compilations, browse categories and containers is different. Separate steps are listed below for list and field setup with target mapping instructions. For more information on using lists in Forum, see Manage Lists.
JSTOR Compilations and Setup
JSTOR Compilation is a global list to which a Forum cataloger can add local values. The categorical, thematic, or descriptive grouping compiles the item into a larger sub-collection in JSTOR’s Open Community Collections.
The JSTOR Compilations list is auto-configured to the Compilation field when setting up a new project using the JSTOR template. For projects that were not set up with the JSTOR template, you will have to add a new list field, and link it to the JSTOR Compilation list in your project.
When setting up a JSTOR collection target, the Compilation project field should map to the JSTOR Compilation field. Please check your mapping before publishing.
JSTOR Containers and Setup
A Container describes the larger work or hierarchical organization that contains the item. Examples include the title of a book when individual chapters are the items being described; the title of a periodical when individual issues or articles are being described; the series, box, and/or folder hierarchy in an archival collection.
Containers are not default lists nor are they added as a cataloging form field in the JSTOR template. In this case, you’ll need to create a new container list under the list option. In order to create a new container list:
- In Forum, go to the List view
- Click Actions, select Container from the pop up and then click next.
- Click “Add container”
You will only need to create one Container list in Forum. Each time you add a Container field to a project, you will then be able to link the existing Container list to that field. Once your container has been created, a container field will need to be added to your project’s cataloging form. When creating a new container field, you’ll want to set the field type as a list field. In your project mapping, the container field should be mapped to the JSTOR Container.
Remember to check mapping before publishing, and edit the mapping if necessary. Please visit the Manage Project Fields page for more details on setting up new fields in your cataloging form.
