Fixed Field Example

The Giver quartet by Lois Lowry - barcode 35246000832277 at Fort Nelson.

  • Will be retrieved by the Teen Fiction criteria because it has values for Type: a, Form: r, Audn: d and LitF 1.
  • This record's Date Active timestamp falls on 2014-09-11 12:10 PM which will place it in October's Teen Fiction list (see below).

Booklist Builder Criteria

  • LibPress booklists rely on two groups of metadata to be populated: fixed field values in the 008 that feed into Evergreen's search filters as well as the date a bib record became active (changed status to Available) in a particular catalogue.
  • Often times one or more fixed field values will be incorrect or not filed (namely Audn) and will return no recent records, leading to empty lists.
Currently a bug is preventing space values for Form from being indexed in EG, these should be catalogued with r (print production) to ensure they are added to lists properly

Date Active

Date Active is viewable from the Item Status → Show Item Details context menu

  • Date Active must occur within the last month to be included in the current month's lists.
  • For example, items with a Date Active timestamp that falls in August will appear in the New Items list for September.
  • Date Active is set when the Status of a record changes to Available for the first time.
