[Koha] Tag 100

Hi Michael,

Generally those authority fields are locked so cataloguers can ensure everyone's only using the 
correct spellings and format for the fields. If you want to be able to edit 1XX fields directly 
in bib records, you need to turn on the ability. 

Under Koha Administration > (Global) System Preferences if you go to the Authorities tab there 
is a preference entitled BiblioAddsAuthorities. Switch that to "allow" and save the Authorities 
preferences. You should be able to type in those locked 1XX fields now. 

(Speaking with my cataloguer's hat on, once you're out of testing it'd probably be best to leave 
that as "don't allow" so you don't have an untamed thistle patch of authority records. But maybe 
that's just me.)

I hope that helped.
