Pre-cataloged item settings

By default, when a pre-cataloged item is created, Evergreen sets the Circ Library field to the library where it was checked out. You may change this so that the circ library is set to a different library. This can be helpful in cases where the cataloger who fixes pre-cataloged items is at another library, and you’d like all pre-cataloged items to be routed to that cataloger’s library when they are returned.

To change this setting:

  1. Go to Administration > Local Administration > Library Settings Editor.
  2. Choose Pre-cat Item Circ Lib.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Select the appropriate context. For example, if all pre-cataloged items in your system should have the same circ library, you should choose your system as the context.
  5. Type in the shortname of the library that should be in the circ lib field. Make sure to type this correctly, or Evergreen won’t be able to create pre-cataloged items.


Evergreen always sets the owning library of pre-cataloged items to be the consortium.
