Line Item Features

Line item alerts are predefined text that can be added to line items that are on selection lists or purchase orders. You can define the alerts from which staff can choose. Line item alerts appear in a pop-up box when the line item, or any of its copies, are marked as received.

Line item MARC attribute definitions

Line item attributes define the fields that Evergreen needs to extract from the bibliographic records that are in the acquisitions database to display in the catalog. Also, these attributes will appear as fields in the New Brief Record interface. You will be able to enter information for the brief record in the fields where attributes have been defined.
