Edit authority record: identity area. Asterisks denote required fields

The identity area is where "information is conveyed which uniquely identifies the entity being described and which defines standardized access points for the record" (ISAAR 4.4.1).


Type of entity

"Specify the type of entity (corporate body, person or family) that is being described in this authority record." (ISAAR 5.1.1)

ICA-AtoM ships with a drop-down menu using a default taxonomy of three core types (corporate body, person, family); these cannot be removed or edited, but editors or administrators can add new types.


Authorized form of name

"Record the standardized form of name for the entity being described in accordance with any relevant national or international conventions or rules applied by the agency that created the authority record. Use dates, place, jurisdiction, occupation, epithet and other qualifiers as appropriate to distinguish the authorized form of name from those of other entities with similar names. Specify separately in the Rules and/or conventions element (5.4.3) which set of rules has been applied for this element." (ISAAR 5.1.2)


Parallel form(s) of name

"Record the parallel form(s) of name in accordance with any relevant national or international conventions or rules applied by the agency that created the authority record, including any necessary sub elements and/or qualifiers required by those conventions or rules. Specify in the Rules and/or conventions element (5.4.3) which rules have been applied." (ISAAR 5.1.3).

This is a multi-value field: enter as many names as you like.


Standardized form(s) of name according to other rules

"Record the standardized form of name for the entity being described in accordance with other conventions or rules. Specify the rules and/or if appropriate the name of the agency by which these standardized forms of name have been constructed." (ISAAR 5.1.4).

This is a multi-value field: enter as many names as you like.


Other form(s) of name

The purpose of this field is "To indicate any other name(s) for the corporate body, person or family not used elsewhere in the Identity Area." For rules and examples, see (ISAAR 5.1.5).


This is a multi-value field: enter as many names as you like.


Identifiers for corporate bodies

"Record where possible any official number or other identifier (e.g. a company registration number) for the corporate body and reference the jurisdiction and scheme under which it has been allocated." (ISAAR 5.1.6)
