If you have edited chapters that are new or were not previously in BURO then these will need to be manually input into BRIAN as online databases do not currently offer this service. Google Books may be able to find some meta data for the book itself, but not completely for chapters. Therefore, if you only have a few edited chapters then it would be appreciated if you could manually input these into BRIAN. Click on ‘Add new Chapter’ and then ‘Skip this step and go straight to manual entry’. You will then need to input the details of the edited chapter and remember to save.
If you have more than a few edited chapters that were not previously in BURO then RDU will manually input these into BRIAN for you during this launch period. If you require RDU to input your edited chapters, please supply the following information:
- Relationship type: ‘Author’, ‘Editor’, or ‘Translator’
- Authors last name and initials
- Editors last name and initials
- Chapter number
There are a number of other fields that you can view following the instructions above. If you have the information for these fields and can provide them to RDU then we will also input these. Please send your edited chapter information to BRIAN@bournemouth.ac.uk and mark the subject field as ‘Edited Chapters’.
BRIAN continues to develop functionality to search other online databases so the ability to search for chapters may be forthcoming in the future.
