As a part of #8127, we added support in 2.2 to a Genre access point on the RAD template. The new Genre taxonomy is populated with default terms - all 45 terms included have been taken from the US Library of Congress' "Basic Genre Terms for Cultural Heritage Materials," available at: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/techdocs/genre.html

This ticket will add the Genre access point field to ISAD and DACS view and edit pages. It should behave the same as it does on the RAD view and edit pages.

Additionally, in RAD, the genre access points could be imported into 2.2 by adding a column called genreAccessPoints to the CSV. However, currently, this is not included on our CSV samples in AtoM, or on the wiki. A quick tweak needs also to happen to the export code for both ISAD and RAD templates so that the genreAccessPoints column is included on CSV exports (search results CSV exports handled via the job scheduler, and CLI CSV exports). As part of this ticket we will also:

  • Update 2.3 sample CSV templates
  • Add CSV import support for ISAD CSV template
  • Add support for CSV export (both CSV templates)
