I am Alfresco newbie with solid Java development experience, so I am trying to understand how to do things alfresco way.

I am making custom  application which access alfresco with web services and I want to use alfresco for user management. Authentication works and the everything seems to be OK. However I would like to add some attributes to alfresco user, eg. "department". Not just textual field but a combobox with all departments in organization so i can select one and make it required field. I guess I need to somehow maintain (admin) list of departments (data dictionary?) and then store selected value with other user data. There are "location" and "organization" user attributes but they are plain text and not exactly what i need.

Can someone please just let me know is it possible or maybe suggest how to start or where to look for inforomation. Is there any alternative solutions?
