Use LIBRARY_NEW database to catalog new items. Move your new items to the LIBRARY main catalog when they are ready for circulation.
Move Items function.
It compares Title and ISBN numbers. If both are the same a new copy will be created (if Add Another Copy option is selected).
If ISBN number is missing the new item will be created.
There is also a new option called Add New Item. If it is selected a new item and 1 copy will be created for every item moved.
Question: I'm entering new books over several days. I'm not sure I understand the New Table moving to Database concept. Why do they get held in the new table section and then get moved in batches? Should I be moving them after every 20 books or so or just once a day or once a week? Not sure how to use this.
If you enter a small number of items, you can create them in the library main catalog. One item you can easily review, edit, or delete.
Use Add Library Items:
- Many items are added in one session (import from spreadsheet, import from MARC, auto-cataloging from ISBN list).
- Volunteers are adding items, and library administrator wants to review new entries.
- Test auto-cataloging feature, before using it in the main library catalog.
