Sitka Snippet Video - Copy Locations Editor (3:25)

  1. Select AdminLocal AdministrationCopy Locations Editor.

  2. You can create new copy locations (aka shelving location), or edit existing copy locations. To create a new shelving location, type in the name, and select Yes or No for the various attributes: OPAC Visible, Holdable, Circulate, Hold Verify and Checkin Alert. Click Create a new copy location.

    Holdable means a patron is able to place a hold on an item in this location.

    Hold Verify, if set up, will generate a prompt when an item is captured for a hold.

    Checkin Alert will prompt staff to route the item to the location when checking in items with this location.

    Label Prefix and Label Suffix, if set up, will be automatically included when printing spine labels

  3. In the bottom part of the Copy Locations Editor you can edit or delete existing copy locations. You cannot delete a location that contains items. In this example the copy location Adult Videos is being edited.

    Click Translate to enter optional translations of copy location titles for OPAC display when patrons select other languages.

    Text in the Label prefix and Label suffix fields will automatically be added to spine labels printed for items in the selected copy location. It does not affect OPAC or staff client display.


Whether an item can be circulated, holdable or visible on OPAC is controlled by three factors: item status, shelving location and item attributes (the options in the Copy Editor). Evergreen follows the aforementioned sequence to check the value of each factor until it encounters a NO. An item can be circulated, holdable or visible on OPAC when all three factors are set to YES.


After creating or deleting a copy location, log out of the staff client and clear the cache to ensure changes are reflected in the copy editor. This is not required for edits to existing copy locations.

This is where you see the shelving locations in the Copy Editor:


The order of the shelving location name and library code can be reversed by setting up AdminWorkstation AdminstrationCopy Editor: Copy Location Name First

This is where the shelving location appears in the OPAC.
