Description

Add a term to one of the controlled vocabularies. The better way is to have CUAHSI add the term to the official vocabulary through their web-page: http://his.cuahsi.org/mastercvreg/

updateCV queries the official vocabulary again and updates the database tables.

CVtables returns a list of controlled vocabularies.
