The Contributor Tab can be found in the Title Record. Navigate to Title Manager / Books and then select a title and here you will find the
Contributors are all of the individuals involved in producing a book's content, such as the author, the editor of a collection of material, the photographer, etc. Two tabs will come up as per the image below.
The first tab allows you to enter details about the contributors to the title.
* Contributor's Role: First you must define the contributor's role. If the contributor is an author, for instance, then you will click on By(author) in the drop-down menu
* Contributor's Name: Click on the blank field to access the full list of contributor names already on the system. Choose the appropriate contributor.
If the relevant contributor does not already appear in the list, then you will need to add the name to the system. See the section on Contributors for adding a new entry.
To change the sequence of the contributor names, drag the cross icon up and down.
To delete a contributor, click on the red X.
To add another contributor, click on Add another contributor and follow the instructions as written above.

Adding a new Corporate contributor is done under Organisation Admin. This found under the General menu item on the left hand side
Once the Contributors are added you can click Update and move onto the Contributors Statement Tab
Contributors Statement: This is a single statement that is relevant to a particular book but it does not replace the biographical note. A contributor may have a contributor statement assigned to content although it is suggested that biographical notes be used in preference for ease of maintenance.
Copy Biographical Note: By clicking on the contributor names, the biographical notes against their names will appear in the Contributors Statement box below. You can then adjust the text where necessary.
Contributors Statement: Or you can manually type in the statement, for example,
Written and illustrated by Fred and Emily Jackson.
Click Update to save your changes. Once you are finished working in the main Contributor tab, move into the Forms tab.
