* Source type: z39.50 Server
* The "Updating from source should overwrite user data" box is not
* Available Fields boxes for Address, Abstract and Illustrator are

* The "Use preset server" box is not checked.
* Host: z3950.adsabs.harvard.edu
* Port: 210
* Database: AST
* Character set: utf-8 (I've tried all of these to no effect too)
* Format: MODS
* User: [none set]
* Password: [none set]
