[Koha] Add record author field locked?

Just to elaborate, navigate to Administration/System Preferences/Authorities and set 'BiblioAddsAuthorities' to 'On'.
I found that it was also helpful (especially for a school library) to create a custom bibliographic framework containing only the fields we needed.  It made manual cataloguing significantly easier for school librarians who might not have much experience with MARC format cataloguing.
Hope that helps!

Sounds like your problem is related to this:
