Taxonomy

Taxonomies

The taxonomy is split from the single files and kept in one single file called taxonomy.xml. This is actually only a <classDecl> which contains a <taxonomy>

<taxonomy xml:id="ethioauthlist"> <category> <desc>special mss</desc> <category> <catDesc>GoldenGospel</catDesc> </category> <category> <catDesc>miniatureCollection</catDesc> </category> </category> ... </taxonomy>

The main <category> with a <desc> group the actual keywords which are in children <category> elements containing only a <catDesc> as in the example above.

So, if you need to add a keyword (a value for @key in <term>),

  1. open an issue about its pertinence;
  2. if agreed then edit the taxonomy.xml file and add the value under the correct group in a <category>;
  3. create and sync an authority-file record for that;
  4. you will have then to update the schema with the value.
