Q: Do we key names in advertisements?


Q: Should we key the Artist who drew the cartoons? In yearbooks, quite often these are created by students.


Q:  the pages I'm working on are for various clubs and groups - at the top of the page is a photo with a caption below of their surnames, then below that is a list of officers with complete names.  Do I key in the surnames of those in the photo who are NOT officers or just those for whom there are full names?


Q: Should we enter nicknames (which appear in quotations) as the Given name if none other provided? For example, "Ellie" Woods.
