DASH! work relied on and connected to the author and subject browse indices that already existed in the library catalog. These indices are used to support the author and subject browse pages and capture both authorized headings, which are Library of Congress headings, and other headings that are used locally within the catalog but have not been mapped to Library of Congress headings. Knowledge panel links are currently only available for authorized headings. In the browse index Solr documents, the "authority" field is set to "true" if that document corresponds to an authorized heading and is set to "false" otherwise.
Here is the content currently in the author browse index for the heading "Eliot, George, 1819-1880."
Figure 1 below shows where information from fields from this document are displayed on the author page for George Eliot. Figure 2 shows the content that was added as a result of DASH! work.
