    4140'''active'''    whether the resource can be used or not. 
     42Resource modules can define their own resource details if they need more information to work properly. Most resources have a database URL which will be used to link to the database level if present. Most also have a configuration note which will show up on the local resources page if present. Other details you may see are authorization name and password for logging into services, or base URL for specifying the base component of a URL for constructing links to that resource. 
     44Each resource also has a set of services it supports. Checking off services here will allow users to turn them on at the local level. Services which are not active at the global level are not available to be activated at the local level. See the GENERAL documentation for details on what each service means. 
     46'''Global Resource Title Lists''' 
     48Title lists can be uploaded by clicking on the "bulk" link next to the titles count. From this screen you can browse to the title list on your local machine and then upload it. Once it is uploaded, you will need to run "util/" from the CUFTS base directory to do the actual load. It is split this way because some title list updates can take a while (if they're updating a global resource which many sites have activated locally) and it occasionally would time out the browser. If you have multiple people maintaining global lists, you may want to cronjob the script to run every 15 minutes or something like that. 
     50Title lists are tab delimited, with the first row containing field names. They should match whatever fields are displayed when you click on the number of titles in the resource (even if it's 0). 
     52The update process will tell you how many records were added, and deleted. Due to how title lists vary and the lack of a single unique identifier, there is no modification of records. Records with changes will be deleted and re-added.
