Additional Information

There is an explanation in System Librarian?s Guide - Items
item_label_restore
This entry works together with the GUI-Circulation utility Change Item Information.
Possible values:
Y - When the user changes item information (using the Change Item Informationutility in GUI-Circulation) and the Permanent Change field is not checked, as soon as
the item label is printed, the original item information will be restored and it will
replace the non-permanent information. The item label will also include the original
item information.
N - The original item information will not be restored when the item label is printed.
