How to tell if a repository record has been imported from TULIP

The previous blog post outlined why it is important not to directly edit or amend (or especially remove) any records in the Repository that have been imported from TULIP (i.e. doing so could cause problems with the other systems, such as Portfolio of Assessment, that take their publications details from TULIP) - but how do you know for sure if a record has been imported from TULIP?

The answer is straightforward - when viewing the record for a specific item, look at the web address. It will be in the form of repository.liv.ac.uk/XXXXXXX, where XXXXXXX is a number. If this number is between 1,000,000 and 2,000,000, this indicates that the record has been imported from TULIP and should not be directly edited.
