    • Product: 360 Core Client Center

    How do I create a new library-specific holdings database?

    These instructions are part of the process of creating and managing a library-specific holdings database, which is explained in full here.

    To create a new library-specific holdings database:
    1. On the Data Management home page, select the Create New Database button.


       If you cannot see a Create New Database button, then your account does not have the correct View/Edit permissions for local holdings management.

    2. On the New Library-Specific Database page, enter the appropriate information into the fields provided.


      • Provider – Set to Library-Specific Holdings.

      • Database Name – This is the only required field, and can be set to anything.

      • Custom Database Name – Has a limit of 200 characters.

      • Format – Specify whether the new database contains print, online, microform or CD-ROM resources. The default setting is Online unless you specify another format

      • Display In – By default, the 360 Core and 360 Link check boxes are selected, but you can select/deselect check boxes as needed. If you want to see this database's contents in Summon, be sure to check the Summon checkbox

      • The database URL for the Default URL field must be properly formatted

    3. Select Save to save your changes. You will be taken to the Database Journal Details screen. From there, you can either upload titles or add an individual title.
