    Make Call Number mandatory on item creation screen?

    We’d like to make Call Number a mandatory field on the GUI item creation screen. Is there a way to do that with the xxx50/tab/pc_tab_circ_fast_cat.eng table? It only allows five spaces for the field label, so it looks like it’s only intended to affect MARC records rather than the actual item record.

    As you suggest, the fields specified in pc_tab_circ_fast_cat are BIB/ADM doc fields only.

    The required z30 fields (sublibrary, item status, and material type) are hard-coded in the check_z30 program. There is no ability to require other item fields.
