The Authorities Task Force and MnPALS Indexing Task Force were merged with each other on October 28, 2016.
The MnPALSCataloging User Group established the Authorities Task Force to examine authorities functionality in the MnPALS implementation of the Aleph System, both in the current version 15.5.2 and in version 17.01. The task force shall look at linkages between bibliographic records and authority records, display of authority information, authority field tag terminology, and other issues related to authorities. It shall also review the database of authority records that were rejected during loading (SYS19). The examination shall incorporate as appropriate the MnLINK acceptance testing scripts that already have been developed for authority issues.
