Selecting your outputs for GREAT

If you are creating a new GALA record, and wish it to count towards GREAT 2018, please fill in the appropriate fields before you deposit the item. If you are the record owner (i.e. the depositor), and you wish to select an output which is already in GALA, please use the Edit tab on the GREAT stage of the workflow to highlight the appropriate icon (A-E) and input the textual summary.

If the record was created by a colleague, but you wish to select it yourself, you will need to contact the GALA team at who will be able to uploads the information on your behalf.
