Cover

32189_1220702381_0015-00001.jpg

This form type is for the book covers.

Star Biography

32189_1220702381_0020-00066.jpg

This form type is for images displaying the biography of the star.  The names on the images usually appear in alphabetical order with the name of the star appearing in bold lettering at the beginning of the biographical paragraph. 

Page

Key the Page number. 
See Example

Navigation

There are three selections in the dictionary for this field: Complete on this image; Continued from previous image; and, Continues on to next image.  This field only need be used for the first and last biographical entries on the image.  If the fields necessary to key for a biographical subject are continued on to the next image choose "continues on to next image".  Even if the next image is not part of your image set, make this selection if you are unable to continue keying the required fields because they are on the next image. If your image set begins with a continued biographical subject choose "continued from previous image" then key only the required fields visible on your image.  Do not worry about what was keyed on the previous image because the data from both pages will later be put together in one record for the individual. If the portion of the biography that you have contains no information to be keyed, then do not enter anything in this field and just proceed to the next biographical subject. The third dictionary entry is "complete on this image" and is unncessary for these images.
