Overview

An admin category is a curator-assigned label, such as an exhibit name, project name, etc., that is used to classify a set of content. The admin category is designed for administrative use within Web Admin; e.g., you can use this category to retrieve a group of objects or files in a search.

In this release, admin categories are shared across all owner codes and all categories are visible to all users. If you need a category that applies only to your content, include a project or organization name to make it more specific (e.g., Houghton Theatrical Photographs).

Create a new admin category

  1. Click Wordshack on the main menu. Then click the Admin. Categories option on the Wordshack menu.
  2. Type your new category term in the search box. If no match is found, click the Create New button to open a New Admin Category Term form.
  3. Enter the category term in the Value field. You also have the option to add a note about the term in the Note field.
  4. For Authority, select a value from the drop-down or accept the default value "unspecified".
  5. Click Save New Term and the category will be created.

Add admin category relationships

Once you create an admin category, a Relationships form will appear. Use this form to relate one category to another category.

  1. Open the admin category term.
  2. Scroll down to the Relationships area.
  3. Select a Relation Type.
    • Has earlier form relates the current term to an earlier form already defined in Wordshack.
    • Has later form relates the current term to a later form already defined in Wordshack.
    • Supersedes indicates that the current term should be used instead of another term already defined in Wordshack. Choosing this relation type will suppress the superseded term from displaying in auto-search results in Wordshack. 
    • Is superseded by indicates that the current term is superseded by another term already defined in Wordshack. Choosing this relation type will suppress the superseded term from displaying in auto-search results in Wordshack.
  4. Type all or part of the category term into the Select a related term auto-search box. A list of matching terms will display. Click a term to select it. 
    If no match is found, you will need to create an admin category term before completing this task.
  5. Click the Save Term-to-Term Relations button to create the relationship.
