Place or Repository

Creating a new record or deciding between repository entity and place entity

All Monasteries and Churches in PLACES have also a parallel Repository record in the institutions repo. The two lists have different origins, PLACES comes from EA indexes, while the INSTITUTIONS list is an export of the records in EthioSPaRe for repositories.

Please, proceed as follows in case of doubt:

  1. if the repository record for the repository you need does not exist, create one and assign an ID.

  2. leave the place record there, check the already existing references to this place. This can be done either with xpath in Oxygen or on the website looking at related entities.

  3. modify those references that actually point to a repository and not to a place, if any.
