SAILS will have completed the itemcat3 updates to the database by October 3,2016. This means that starting next Monday when you add items to the database you must be sure to enter an itemcat1 (used for circulation) itemcat2 (used to define audience for the item) and itemcat3 (broad categories for reporting.) We are not going to be doing any verification that these values are being added so if there is a problem next July with reports we won't be aware. This is also something you can't run reports for in Directors Station - it doesn't know about the itemcategory 3. If you are unsure of what categories to use here are the definitions as set up by the MBLC: Name - Description AUDIO - Compact discs, cassettes etc., Playaways for books, etc. BOOKS -BOOKS DAUDIO -Downloadable audio (audiobooks, music) DVIDEO -Downloadable video E-BOOKS -E-books ELECTRONIC - Materials in electronic format (including CD-ROM and video games) MICROFORMS - Materials in microforms (fiche rolls, etc.) MISC - Miscellaneous (ebook readers, museum passes, equipment, puppets, kits, board games, art, etc.) PERIODICAL - Print periodicals, newspapers and other print serials (including scholarly or scientific journals) VIDEO - DVDs/Blu-ray discs/VHS, Playaway View, etc.
