Collection

Name
Index

Note: Most of the time you can leave "Index" empty, and the program will do the right thing, that is, if the Name field contains "First Last", and you leave the Index field empty, it will be set to "Last, First", which is what you want.

However, where the collection value the the name of an institution, this doesn't make sense. E.g., you would not want "Smithsonian Instutution" to show up as "Institution, Smithsonian".

In cases like this, as a shortcut, you can tell the program to use the same value for Name and Index, by putting a "-" in the Index field.

In some cases, e.g., "Jesse Fisher and Joan Kureczka", which would otherwise be auto-generated as "Kureczka, Jesse Fisher and Joan", you can just fill in the value you want to use for Index (perhaps "Fisher, Jesse and Joan Kureczka" in this example).
