Why can’t I edit 1xx, 6xx, or 7xx fields in my catalog record?

These fields are authority controlled in the default frameworks, and the BiblioAddsAuthorities system preference is set to ‘don’t allow’ in all new Koha installs. When it is set to ‘don’t allow,’ these fields will be locked and require you to search for an existing authority record to add data to this field. Turning on BIblioAddsAuthorites will allow you to add authorities on the fly as you catalogue records, but be aware that any typos or duplicates you make will be added as authorities.
