|The Library has media equipment that is checked out for use in the Library. Records are created so Circulation can keep track of the equipment.Records are created locally, in Voyager only.|
There is a record template: media_equip.tem in the Voyager catalog path on the Library shared drive, under templates. Copy this template to the appropriate folder on your machine. c://Voyager/Catalog/Template/ This will save you having to recreate the fixed field elements and the common fields.
