Before creating a Brief Title record, it may be necessary to adjust the default properties for the wizard dependent on the use. For example, those creating Brief Title records for Leased collection items may want the records visible to patrons in The CAT and so would accept the default indicating whether or not the records will be shadowed (i.e., suppressed). On the other hand, those creating records to circulate equipment may not want them visible to patrons and so would change the default to shadow the records.
To change the default properties for the Add Brief Title Wizard, right click on the wizard icon and choose Properties from the pop-up menu. This will display the Add Brief Title: Set Properties window.
If you wish your Brief Title records to be shadowed, check the box next to Shadow title, which can be found under the Use entries line. This setting will need to be changed back if you wish to create an unshadowed brief record later.
You may also want to change the Library setting to reflect the proper library to which the item belongs and the Home location to reflect the correct shelving location.
Click on OK when finished changing the default settings to suit your purpose.
