Policies in SeSam

The SeSam collection database can be used by everybody, as the system attributes different rights for accession four different levels:

The SUPER-MANAGER has the right to read and write in all collections.

The MANAGER has only read-and-write right for the collection or collections which are managed by him. Manager can validate and publish datasets captured by typists.

The TYPIST has read-and-write rights for the collection to which the person will work, but no right to update. Saved dataset are no longer editable and have to be validated by a manager first.

The USER can only read while some functions are limited. Login is possible from all over the world, and search functions are available.
