This tab provides information about how to edit existing information in JRNL.
Permissions to edit different data elements
Depending on your JRNL permissions, you will have the ability to edit different data in the system. Some data elements may only be edited by a few users in order to keep the data consistent across the system. See the table on the Users tab for more information.
Because a journal's bibliogaphic data is shared with all users, only a limited number of users called "Bib Administrators" have the ability to edit this data once it is entered into JRNL. If you see bibliographic information that appears to be incorrect, contact the Bib Administrator at JRNLBibAdmin@uflib.ufl.edu to request a change. Technical Users at any institution (see Users tab) may upload bibliographic data for a journal that does not yet exist in JRNL but further editing must be requested through the Bib Administrator.
For the Holdings Data, a Technical User may edit
Edits may be done individually by clicking on one of your institution's holdings, scrolling down to the holdings section and clicking on Edit . You may also delete the entire holding by clicking on Delete. If you do not see the Edit or Delete links to the right of the Holding, you do not have permission to edit this holding. You may only edit Holdings in Locations managed by your institution and you must be a Technical User at that institution. (see Users tab)
Another way to edit holdings it by uploading new holdings information for the existing OCLC(s). JRNL will overwrite the old holdings information with the data from the new upload.
For the Gap Data, a Technical User may edit
Edits may be done individually by navigating to the Manage My Gaps page, clicking on one of your institution's gaps, and clicking on Edit . You may also delete the entire gap by clicking on Delete. You may only edit Gaps for Locations managed by your institution. Both Basic and Technical Users at an institution may manage Gaps. (see Users tab)
Gap data will not be overwritten using another Gap upload since it is possible for an institution to solicit multiple copies of the same volume.
Users and Locations
Technical Users may manage Users and Locations through the Administration page. Each User must have a unique Google login. The single Contact-Email for the institution may also be managed here.
For Locations, the user may edit:
