Mfhd Creation from Templates


The mfhd (pronounced muff-head) is the holdings record which shows shelving location, call number and volume holdings. Acquisitions staff should have their default holdings template set to "hold.tem" To create a mfhd:
  • With the bibliograhic record as the active window, click on the New Hldgs icon (pile of books strapped together, with "+" sign)
  • Type in the location code (lowercase) following the subfield b, or click in the space following the delimiter, and use control-l to select from a drop-down list of locations.
  • Save the record by clicking on the Boat icon.

If you have the book in hand, create an item record.
