Hello Everyone,

Investigating some questions posed by my catalog team. Does anyone know that answer(s) to the following:

  1.  Most State Archives collections have their top level record type set to "Series." Is there a way to change these to "Collection," and do you have a sense of how difficult this process would be?

  1.  Is it possible to have certain fields auto-select when you create a new resource record?
     *   Example: Can "Language" and "Finding Aid Language" be se to English, and "Script of Description" set to Latin? be set to English as a default?
     *   Could the text for a field like preferred citation or finding aid title be generated based on information within the resource record? Like a formula?

  1.  Similar to above, have you seen any other ASpace users create a customized menu for "Conditions Governing Use" that includes options for common copyright situations?

Thank you for your time and help!

Best Wishes,
