Adding New Items to existing Bibliographic records
Look up the book you want to catalog one of 3 ways: title, author, or isbn.
Title is the easiest choice. Make sure the drop-down menu says title, then type the title into the box and click search.
Double click on a title that matches your book
Here are the places to look in a record to see if it matches with your book:
If the book does not match, try looking in another record.
Adding Items in SOLAR
If it does match, hooray! Now it is time to add your item.
Click on the EDIT button at the top of the screen.
Double click in the box next to location.
1. Click the Add location button, and
3. Click OK
Now click on the summary button
The system will ask you if you want to save changes – you do.
On this summary screen, click “Attach New Item”
A new screen comes up and prompts you for whatever fields you have set in your item templates. The prompts allow you to quickly enter info that is needed in every record. It will also automatically fill in information that is always the same. For items outside the standard book, general location, etc., you can go in and change the details once the record is created. If you regularly create other items that meet a specific pattern, we can create another template for them, which you choose when you start cataloging each session. For more info about that, please submit a query to support.maineinfonet.org.
For example, in this example, it prompts for the item call number
1. Type in the information you want in the call number or note field
2. Click Next.
3. Add or change any additional info you want in the item record.
Now SAVE by clicking on the Save button.
That’s it! Your item has been added to the catalog.
You can now see it in the list of items—the one with location starting your 3 letter library code.
To edit the item record,
double click the item from your location.
You can also DELETE
by checking the box in front of your item (make sure you don’t get others), and clicking on delete.
To find this record again,
just search for it like you did at the beginning.
