Hi there,

The answer to the first question is in the system preferences. In order 
to be able to manually enter author names and subjects, you need to set 
BiblioAddsAuthorities to 'allow'.

As for your second question, I think you mean how to add Z39.50 servers 
to search. You can do that in Administration > Z39.50/SRU servers. The 
site https://irspy.indexdata.com/find.html can help you find servers to add.

(Authorities in library speak refer to a specific kind of record used 
for names and subject headings.)

As for which servers to add, I wouldn't really know. Maybe university 
libraries since the texts you seem to catalog seem very specialized.

I hope this helps,

This is after clicking on "New Record" and navigating to the 100's tab. What should I be doing to be allowed to manually enter an individual or corporate author's name?

(One respondent, for instance, mentioned "Oxford" as the text of a hyperlink that I assume is what I will want to enter in the appropriate place. Same for a URL for the General Theological Seminary.)

Would it be appropriate to click on "New Record," populate a record with the fields I have (possibly incomplete) and then try to save, navigating to any mandatory fields I haven't filled in?
