Settings page. Inventory > Instances > Nature of content



    • Core: F - Sprint 67
    • Prokopovych


      Purpose: In Inventory we use the Nature of content element in the Instance record. The Nature of content follows the RDA standard (MARC 655).

      Nature of content is defined as the specific character of the primary content of a resource (e.g., legal articles, interim report). Felix Hemme has created a core list of terms, which has been reviewed by the MM-SIG working group on Resource type, Format and Material types. See: https://docs.google.com/document/d/15b5ZLN3ChRy8RKqTOpfmYLZ5sZtmJJ62RZ0u-B7ZWd4/edit

      The core list of terms for Nature of content specifies will be implemented with FOLIO as source and not editable, while it mapps to specific MARC fields, e.g. 513 $a, 516. It's possible to create, edit, and delete locally defined terms.

      As a catalog manager, I want to review and manage the list of Nature of content.
