The ideas are read and reviewed on a regular basis, by product manager and/or local representative. Your ideas will then be available for others to see, vote on and discuss. We encourage discussions between the idea contributors.

Successful ideas will the be prioritzed within our backlog.

We reserve the right to reject ideas, and also close issues after 3 months if we don't receive an answer to our follow up questions.

Auswahl Manifestationsarten reduzieren

Es wäre toll, wenn Bibliotheken die Möglichkeit hätten, einzelne Manifestationsarten zu löschen/auszublenden (individuell anpassbar). Viele Arten werden z.B. bei uns nicht benötigt. Andererseits gibt es z.B. für DVDs mehrere passende Manifestationsarten (Film, DVD, Video --> hat Auswirkungen auf die Suche in Arena). Die große Auswahl macht das Katalogisieren sehr fehleranfällig.

    Thank your for this suggestion, but there is a quite advanced logic behind the manifestation types so it not possible to create a customization of them in a near future. The manifestation types are created based on the RDA values together with the work type and expression type, and those are created from the marc records, which is the most common way of getting bibliographical data among the Quria libraries today.

    Then every manifestation type is mapped to Arenas mediaclasses, since they are not equal. Arena is a solution that runs on top on many other backend systems with differetens metadata format so every system must have a specific mapping to Arena.

    Qurias build-in-logic and connection between RDA values can be used as a help when doing manual cataloguing. When you have chosen the Work type on Work, and RDA Inhaltstype on Expression you can click the button Expressionsart festlegen to let Quria calculate the Expressionart. When you work on the manifestation, you choose RDA Medienart and RDA Datenträgentyp and then click on the Manifestationsart festlegen button to let Quria calculate a suggested Manifestation type. Then it's of course possible to chose a different one in the end.

    I totally understand that you would need a shorter customized list of manifestation types but it's not possible for us to meet this wish for quite some time, if ever.

    Best regards
