1 Go to More > Authorities (on the top of the page)



2. Select the type of search (e.g. main heading a$only, all headings, the entire record)

Koha default settings only search in the main headings « a » (example : 100a – author, 110a – corporate author)


Tips: Access your record before.


Author’s full name (person or Corporate) are often split between subfields.

Example:
100 $a = Canada
100 $b = Commission of (….) Canadian Officials (…)

In this case, it is important to extend the search to « Search all headings » to include results with «Commission of (…) Canadian Officials (…).»
