    This non-removal of the temporary item location and temporary item type, even when the "Item is in temporary location" is changed from yes to no, also occurs with resource sharing--when the item is returned and scanned back in, the process type is removed and "Item is in temporary location" is changed from yes to no, but the temporary item policy and temporary item location are not removed. After 2 years with Alma we now have 1459 items with this misleading temporary information, and the number increases daily. Even though Primo and Alma search results do not show that misleading information, it is confusing to anyone working in the item record in Alma. The removal of the temporary information at the time "Item is in temporary location" yes is changed to no, whether in a job or in resource sharing or any other Alma process/action should either be automatic or we should have the option to MAKE it automatic.

    And yes we could just open Templates, Holdings, Shared, [the one we want to use]--but that's 3 more clicks than Add Holdings. It's bad enough we have to copy and paste the call number into the holdings record because it doesn't pull it from the open bib record.

    And now we have the issue of one of our student assistants creating bibs and holdings records for the campus Toy Library in another building using a default Toy Library holdings template, and one of our staff needing to add another copy of a book to a different location in OUR library but when she click Add Holding in the MDE the default Toy Library template populates with the wrong EVERYTHING. If she changes the default, the student can't do her work over in the Toy Library--and the student doesn't have the user role to allow her to change the default back to what she needs.

    The Change Physical Items job/Change location creates a new holdings record BASED ON THE DEFAULT SELECTED IN THE METADATA EDITOR. So if one staff member is running such a job and others are cataloging/creating holdings records but with different default values such as call number type, they can't both do their work at the same time. Or when one staff member is cataloging materials for one location and/or call number type and another is cataloging for another location and/or call number type, they can't both do their work at the same time. THIS NEES TO BE FIXED!!!!!!

    The existing reverse order is just one of the annoying, confusing, and unhelpful instances of Alma listing/displaying information in he reverse order from that in the bibliographic record/reverse order of creation. I support this idea 100%.

    A facet to narrow by local electronic collection (and maybe by CZ collection as well) is also desirable. We want our students to be able to limit their results to online gov docs.

    This idea is identical to another one I just voted for--can they be merged?

    This is needed for ALL types of records--items, holdings, and bibs. Reporting out withdrawn items in Analytics is worthless to us because it includes items or holdings or bibs that we deleted (because they were added by mistake) rather than withdrawn from the collection.

    Because Alma treats records/items/holdings deleted due to being added in error the same as withdrawn, we change the holdings location to Withdrawn for items/holdings that have been deliberately removed from the collection. We need the capability to identify the date the holdings record was modified/the date the location was changed to Withdrawn so that we can do annual reports of withdrawn items as required by our university administration.

    We need to do title reports on multiple, but not all, locations for annual ACRL, campus, and other reports, so we too need the ability to pull location and holdings information into a title report.

    Additionally, simply changing the 2nd indicator will NOT solve the problem. Many LC children's subject headings do not have an identical corresponding LC adult subject heading. So the resulting heading would still not authenticate by Alma authority control and would be stranded as an unlinked heading.
