A semicolon between my field metadata is not separating the terms

  • You have metadata in your fields and terms are separated by a semicolon however, you are seeing a string of terms in your websites facet list.
Applies to

In order to separate terms in the facet list, a controlled vocabulary will need to be set up for the metadata field. Setup a controlled vocabulary by following the workflow here: Use Controlled Vocabulary

For fields that have terms unlikely to be found in the provided controlled vocabulary templates, a controlled vocabulary set up with Use the existing contents of the field will automatically generate a CV with the current list of terms.

If the above does not resolve the display issue, contact OCLC Support and provide a direct link to the collection on the CONTENTdm public website.
