Locations module

The Locations module records details about display and storage locations within an institution for objects recorded in the Catalogue.

When an object is attached to a Locations record and its current location is updated in EMu, an audit trail is automatically generated and displayed on the Location tab of the Catalogue module.

Note: See How to relocate an object for details of relocating objects recorded in the Catalogue module.
