 Sometimes a patron will wish to borrow an item for which no record is found in the PINES database. Rather than tell the person that the item cannot be borrowed, a temporary brief title record can be entered at the circulation desk, and the item can be checked out to the patron. These records are not permanent records and they do not, in fact, appear in the OPAC. The default “home location” is given as CATALOGING. This is meant as a prompt to the circulation staff to send the item to the Cataloging Department when it is returned so it can be fully cataloged. Evergreen deletes these records upon check-in. Sometimes a patron will wish to borrow an item for which no record is found in the PINES database.
