ADDING NEW ITEMS
When barcoding and adding new items to Horizon, the final step in finishing this process is to check the item in (in CKI). This tells Horizon the item is available for holds and is on the shelf. We have a default status of ‘li’ (local in) for newly-added materials that displays as ‘on shelf’ in the catalog, but ‘li’ (local in) does not tell the system these materials can be requested on the pull list. Only through checking items in (through CKI) does this status change to the requestable status of ‘o’, or ‘on shelf’.So, please remember to run all new items through CKI as the final step in processing new materials.

CMC CATALOGING REQUESTS
As a result of a state grant, the statewide Cataloging Maintenance Center at Lincoln Trail is upgrading some older cataloging records in LINC. If you receive a request for one of your materials from the Cataloging Maintenance Center, treat the item as an interlibrary loan request. On the gold band, write CMC-LTN and put the item in transit to Lincoln Trail. The item will be checked out at Lincoln Trail to the CMC staff. Items requested for cataloging will be returned in two weeks.
