How do I prevent certain users from registering new terms or names?

Sometimes it is desirable to limit the control over authority records to only a few users. You would then like to prevent all other users from being able to create new term or name records or to edit existing records in the Thesaurus and Persons and institutions. The best way to do that is by applying roles and rights. This doesn't have to be complicated. See the FAQ document for an elaborate instruction.
