13.1. Creating Digital Bookplates (Copy Tags) In SPARK

Digital Bookplates (Copy Tags) are only available in the Web Version of Evergreen.

These permissions are needed to work with Digital Bookplates. In SPARK they're assigned to the Library Admin and Technical Services permission group.

  • ADMIN_COPY_TAG_TYPES: required to create a new tag type under Server Administration→Copy Tag Types
  • ADMIN_COPY_TAG: required to create a new tag under Local Administration→Copy Tags

The library must also have the Library Setting  OPAC: Enable Digital Bookplate Search set to True for the search option to be available in the catalog. This is set to true at the SPARK level.

 

Creating Copy Tags

There are two components to this feature: Copy Tag Types and Copy Tags.

Copy Tag Types are used to define the type of tag, such as "Bookplates" or "Local History Notes", as well as the organizational unit scope for use of the tag type.

Copy Tags are associated with a Copy Tag Type and are used to configure the list of tags that can be applied to copies, such as a list of memorial or donation labels, that are applicable to a particular organizational unit.

Create Copy Tag Types

  1. Go to Administration→Server Administration→Copy Tag Types.
  2. In the upper left hand corner, click New Record. A dialog box will appear. Assign the following to create a new Copy Tag Type:

    1. Code: a code to identify the copy tag type.
    2. Label: a label that will appear in drop down menus to identify the copy tag type.
    3. Owner: the organizational unit that can see and use the copy tag type.
  3. Click Save and the new Copy Tag Type will appear in the list. Next create the associated Copy Tags.
