When editing the Item Details of a LHR, I get the error: "Unable to find the specified holding item"

  • When the Item Details of a Local Holdings Record are edited to allocate a different shelving location or change the branch, a message displays Unable to find the specified holding item, and the details do not save
Applies to
  • WorldShare Record Manager
  • WorldShare Circulation

Check to ensure that the LHR (Local Holdings Record) entries are correct:

  1. Find the record in Record Manager. Check the 876 tags, as there may be one displaying that no longer exists. If so, remove this 876 Tag for the redundant barcode.
  2. If you do have two copies, add a second copy with a new barcode for the relevant library. Do this using the Copies > Add Item.

Alternately, if both 876 tags are valid, check to ensure that in the Leader field ( 000 ) the Type of Record is set to v - Multipart item holdings and not x - Single-part item holdings. 

When an LHR has more than one 876 $p field, the Leader must be set to v - Multipart item holdings. 

You may also need to change the 008/16 Completeness to something other than 4 - Not applicable. 

Validate the LHR, fix any other issues, and then Save
