    Physical Material Type Descriptions table does not have the option to add a row

    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version: Feb 2018 Release



    There is no option to add a row to this table, only Ex Libris is able to add a new Physical Material Type.  This is because the table must remain consistent across all Alma institutions to enable data analysis.


    Instead of creating a new Physical Material Type, users can use "Other" or "Equipment" with a fulfillment note (which will pop-up when user will loan this item).

    The fulfillment note can be added to an analytics report, Physical item details > Fulfillment note.
