New Sierra Temporary Fixed-field Codes

I’ve recently created new temporary item location, status, and imessage codes to be used during the Law Library move and renovation.  The new codes,  how they will be used, and how they will display in the UAL Catalog can found at:

https://sps.uakron.edu/sites/UL/depts/es/Shared%20Documents/Projects/Law%20Move%20and%20Renovation/system-changes-law-renovation04122016.docx

These codes are only to be used for Law items being moved or put into storage during the Law School and Law Library renovation.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
