    A location in the database does not have an Owning Library assigned.


    1. Identify the location missing the owning library. Two options:
    2. System Administration > System > Locations > scroll through list and see which location(s) are blank in Owning Library column.
    3. Query database for locations where library_id is 0:
    select * 
    from location 
    where library_id=0; 
    1. System Administration System > Locations > highlight location with blank Owning Library
    2. Click Edit
    3. Select an Owning Library from the Owning Library drop-down.
    4. Click Save.

    Additional Information

    Owning Library is a required field. Locations that are missing a value for this field are uncommon; when encountered, they typically are locations that were created long ago (that is, once resolved, this is not an ongoing issue).
