Create or add a new record manually

A short YouTube video guides users on how to create or add a new record in the ANDS Registry. The RDA Content Providers Guide explains each element in the RIF-CS schema should be described.

Records with statuses other than Approved and Published are not backed up by ANDS. The Data Source Administrator should ensure that backup copies of these records are held within their institution.

Bulk Tagging Tool

The Bulk Tagging Tool allows you to manage all of the tags assigned to your records in one place.

The Bulk Tagging Tool help guide explains what tags are, how they are used, and how they can be managed through the interface.
