Change the location for multiple LHRs

Overview

When you change the branch location for multiple items, you are identifying several items by searching for them by barcode. You can then move the items to a different branch location. All parts or issues represented by a local holdings record are updated when you change the branch or shelving location for multipart or serial item.

When you change the shelving location for multiple items, you are identifying several items by searching for them by barcode. You can then move the items to a different permanent or temporary shelving location. This feature supports workflows where you need to move items from their permanent shelving location to a special location for a temporary collection (new books, holiday books, course reserves) or move them back from a temporary shelving location to their permanent location.

 Note: The 876 $r information is not available for item-level changes. Consequently, for items that have this information, the subfield will not be updated.

  • If you change the branch, any temporary shelving locations associated with the items will be removed.
