  1. In Amlib navigate the Main > Stockitem > StockCallSets.
  2. Select F1 New. This creates a new line on the Table where a new Call Set can be created, with details of Range Id (Code), Call Number Range and Description. The Call No Range is from (and including) a beginning Call Number to the last Call Number (e.g. 780 – 790).
  3. Select F3 Save to save the newly entered call number ranges.
