Create a new record with required fields (N2)
provide partial equivalence mapping (M3_PE) result to the scope note writer.
the scope note writer needs to fill out a worksheet(N2)
collect at least 3 authoritative references.
follow the Getty editorial
guideline to create a new record with required fields, including source, note, related term, preferred term, non-preferred term, and additional information.
Contribute New Candidate Terms (1/11)
Equivalence mapping of the following terms ：
－ seal script ( 篆書 )
－ bird and insect script ( 鳥蟲書 )
－ clerical script ( 隸書 )
－ semi-cursive script ( 行草書 )
－ regular script ( 楷書 )

................ <information form components>
.................... <script and type forms>
........................ scripts (writing)
................................ add new terms
After determine the relevance of these terms, the information is then passed on to the Scope Note team (to create new records with required fields. Finally, the new records are provided to the Expert Group for verification
Expert Group (E) Cross-Division Coordination 跨分項協調 (C) 專家審訂 Expert Group (E) 前置作業 (E1) Preparation Translation 翻譯 (T) 內容準確性 (T3_A) Translation Accuracy 1 確認內容 (E1_I) Identify Content 審訂表整理更新 (E1_F) File compilation and update 內容審訂 (E2) Content Verification Content experts need to verify the accuracy of the provided terms. If they determine it’s accurate, then the data will be inputted into the system; if not, revision is needed before the data can be submitted to AAT and AAT-Taiwan. Scope Note 範圍註 (N) 完成新增中文詞彙所有的欄位資料 (N3) Create a new record with required fields 專家修訂 (E2_RE) Revision by Expert 範圍註準確性 (E2_NA) Scope Note Accuracy 翻譯準確性 (E2_TA) Translation Accuracy System Development 系統開發 (S) 著錄翻譯內容、圖片、參考書目 Input data into the system (a) approved review (b) reject
After translation (T3) or the scope note (N3) is completed , the records are passed to content experts for review.
The expert should examine closely the accuracy of the translated or written materials to ensure the precision and credibility of the content
The content expert will receive the following files for review ：
1) scope note worksheet (N3) or translation files (T3)
2) content expert checklist
3) a brief summary of the thesaurus and the hierarchical structure
Scope Note Accuracy (E2_NA) 內容審訂 (E2) Content Verification 修訂 (E2_RE) Revision by Expert 範圍註準確性 (E2_NA) Scope Note Accuracy 翻譯準確性 (E2_TA) Translation Accuracy Example: Metadata Specification version 1.2 (p23) inscriptions > forms > calligraphy > clerical script E1: are the concepts of Chinese scripts complete? E2: is it the appropriate preferred term? E3: is it the appropriate non-preferred term? E4: is the content of the scope note accurate? E5: are these the appropriate broader, narrower, and related terms? E6: are the references and images credible? 範圍註審訂表 Content expert checklist
Contribute New Candidate Terms (2/11)
For content verification (E2), each assigned expert will receive the worksheet (N2) and a checklist. The worksheet includes content of new candidate terms, references, source, suggested hierarchical position, record type…etc.
Candidate term source Suggested hierarchical position record type
References Additional references Scope note Preferred term Non-preferred term Broader term Narrower term related term (3/11)
Contribute New Candidate Terms (4/11)
After the experts reviewed the content, they need to fill out the following checklist to verify the accuracy of the content ：
Are the concepts complete? Are the preferred terms, non-preferred terms, and English translation correct ? Is the term mapped to the correct hierarchical position? Is the scope note content correct?
Contribute New Candidate Terms (5/11) Are the broader terms, narrower terms, and the related terms correct? Are the references and the additional references valuable?
Contribute New Candidate Terms (6/11)
After reviewing the worksheet, the content expert decides to add more concepts under Chinese scripts, a total of 16 terms ：
Chinese scripts seal script clerical script regular script running script cursive script
