Audio/Visual Searching on Title Source II

Make sure to keep A/V (video and music) carts separate from book carts. They must be ordered under separate account numbers. Spoken word titles are treated as books rather than A/V. If you do not already have an A/V account, call (800) 775-2600 to apply for an account.

If you spend most of your time searching A/V you should go to System Setup and set No of Search Fields to 8. Slide down the screen and set the first 8 fields to the fields as seen below:

Words - All Fields
Words - Artist
Words - Genre
Words - Attributes
Non-book Item Number
Non-book Label Code
