InPort uses a Shared Component model to document
and leverage a number of metadata types,
which are often commonly re-used across Catalog Items and organizations.
Since Components are shared by the entire InPort user community,
they can only be created or modified by InPort users
with at least a Librarian role.
If you would like to use a Shared Component that is not currently in InPort,
or if you need to report an error in existing Component, please contact
your Librarian or InPort Support
to address the issue.
