[Koha] Setting Biblio Data Parameters

I'm about where you are in setting up 2.2.9.
The Authorized Values are basically a menu of terms provided for the cataloger. You create them in the "Authorized Values" admin page (under Parameters) -- just click "add category" to get started. For instance, I've created one for the 952 1 field for Lost items (titled "LOST"), and added "Lost" and "Missing," so that the cataloger can't just type anything in. And another category for the 952 2 field (titled "SCHEME"), for which classification system used: our home system, or Lib of Congress....they're going to be different from your thesaurus.
I had to re-read the section in the Users Guide several times to get this, and just played around with it until it made sense, so just be patient!

As for the Authorised Value, is that the same as creating a MARC Authority
Record? Do I set that up in the Thesaurus Structure or Authorised
Values? Excuse my ignorance but I just dont know what to put where.
Surely, Ill stumble into it somewhere somehow (??).

You should set up the fields that you want to use.... About the Authorised
Values , if you are begining, you can build your authority file according
you are entering new registers in your database... Please define the
composition of every authority file.... of personal name, serie,
Then, step by step you have an own authority files....

Im stuck with setting up the MARC framework (V.2.2.9)
Ill be creating a monograph framework, which will contain the following
fields: 000, 001, 003, 005,008, 010, 015, 020, 035, 040 and so on. Is it
safe to delete the other fields that I will not need in this particular
Also, does anyone know of a subject authority list that I can download for
And*is it important to set up the Authorised Values at this initial stage?
Or can that be done later when I become more familiarize with Koha? If I
dont set up the Authorised Values now, would that throw everything out of
whack? Ive read the low down on Authorised Values but still not quite
