marking member authors in Atriuum


Our congregation has a dozen or so member authors whose books are cataloged in our library.  I'd very much like to indicate that somewhere on the bibliographic record (as opposed to the individual patron record) in Atriuum.

I thought "Author Type" would be a great place to indicate that, but it doesn't appear that you are able to customize that field in any way.  I've looked for User Defined Fields, but they only appear on patron records.

Anyone have any ideas?

  • Hello,

    You could add a subject heading for Local Author or you could put it in the notes field.  If someone wants to look up the local authors then it's easy for them to use the term Local Author to find them.  If you want something to indicate this on the spine label you could put LOC in the call number prefix.

    Hope this helps.


  • What about putting it in the Author Analytics field?
