Creating Temporary Items

Due to occasional problems with WMS, sometimes when you try to check out an item or place it on hold for a patron, the system will not recognize the barcode, so a Create Temporary Item window will appear:

Temporary Item 2

Please include as much identifying information as you can in the following fields:

At the bottom of the window, choose whether you want to check out the item, place it on hold, or just create a temporary record without doing anything else to it.

When you are done, your Temporary Item window will look something like this:

Temporary Item

Select Create Item, and then you have created a temporary item.

When that is done, please e-mail the title, author, and barcode info to the Technical Services Librarian to figure out the problem.
