7.6. Non Cataloged Types

Administration-->Local Administration-->Non-Cataloged Type Editor.

This is a very handy feature of Evergreen to track use counts in a different way. 

Libraries use it in many ways to count things used, events attended, people in attendance, to loan items that aren't cataloged (and won't be "checked in" on return), etc. 

Current uses in SPARK include: computers, password distribution for wi-fi, magazine, seeds,  community collections, ILLs, parking passes, bathroom keys, and other what-nots.  

There is not a Best Practice in the consortium for these, but there are many ideas.  Existing SPARK level non-cataloged types are under review for workflow effectiveness.


Make careful decisions about which non-cataloged types you enter:


Understand how Non-Cataloged types will be considered in your Evergreen Reports and other statistic collection workflows at your location.



To create Non-Cataloged Types:

Focus Location should be your Org Unit.   If you can see other ORG Units, do not Edit them.

Tips for Filling out the Form:  DO THIS ON THE TEST SERVERS FIRST unless you are experienced.  Try it out, test it works as you desire, then do it on production. 




Notes:
Deleting is not known to work easily.  If there is any data associated with that field, it won't delete.  
If you make an error in entry, it must be removed on the database side.  Be careful when entering numbers here. 
Permission Notes:
  LibAdmin can edit the Non-Cataloged Types at your location.


When Non-Cataloged Types are configured for your location, they are used from the Circulation Menu: Record In-House Use:

Enter or select the # of Uses in the first box and select from the dropdown menu to type of In-House Use or Non-Cataloged Use that you want to record.  Then use Submit.
