As always, you are very helpful!   I just need sometimes to be pointed in the right direction.  I’ll do some more fishing around…

Hi Jennifer,

By default they live on the server at /openils/var/templates/marc

There is more good information here about them:  https://wiki.evergreen-ils.org/doku.php?id=evergreen-admin:customization:cat

You can certainly create new ones.  A year or two ago I did some searching around and found where several other consortiums had shared their own collections they had made (because I'd rather re-use than re-invent).  There is probably more information on the wiki and/or checking irc logs assuming you've already searched email histories.

As for why that function doesn't exist in the staff client?  The short answer is that no one has prioritized it high enough to commit the development resources to it.

All –

We are having some problems with two of our MARC templates.  They will not load.   Where are they housed?  How are the created?   What would make them go away?

*** Can we create more?   It seems odd to me that I cannot do this within the staff client.  Why not?   Where is it if I can?   I see the Copy Templates Editor.  Why not a ‘MARC templates editor’?

Right now, when we go to “Cataloging” > “Create new MARC Record” we see several that are available for our other location, but not ours.  And when we click on one that we used to use, we are getting a Network Error.

Any assistance is helpful.
