Hola a todos y todas.

Quería consultar cómo usa Atom las opciones de campo Acumulador y Creador.

Yo pensaba que Acumulador es lo que entendemos por Productor (quien acumula los doc. en el ejercicios de sus funciones) y Creador sería el Autor del/los documentos.
Pero aparentemente no es así como se usa en el software.

Si pudieran orientarme, quedo muy agradecida.

Saludos!!

Hola Paula, 

The ISAD(G) standard, around which AtoM's templates were first designed, unfortunately does not include a definition for "accumulator," but it does have a definition for creator: 

Creator. The corporate body, family or person that created, accumulated and/or maintained records in the conduct of personal or corporate activity. Not be confused with collector.

Note that this can be different from the author. For example, in an office, one particular member of a committee may be responsible for authoring a meeting minutes document, but the "creator" would most likely be the committee holding the meeting and not the individual who happened to type them - the act of writing does not necessarily always correlate with responsibility for creation. 

The SAA Dictionary offers the following for "Accumulation": 

accumulation
n.
  1. The organic process by which a collection of records grows out of a routine process.
  1. Preservation and Conservation - A deposit of foreign matter; an accretion.
Notes
Accumulation(2) connotes a substance that increased over time, although it may no longer be growing.

I hope this might at least contribute to the discussion!

Cheers,

I missed one other useful definition from the Glossary found in the ISAD(G) standard: 

Author.  The individual or corporate body responsible for the intellectual content of a document. Not to be confused with creators of records.
