Hi Ben

At the National Library of Australia we make the shelf on which the volume sits a “Top Container”…

Hi Everyone,

Having just recently upgraded to a post 1.5 world, we're learning more about the top container functionality. One immediate thing we noticed is that we cannot assign child indicators without creating or linking to a top container record. Which makes sense. But I'm curious to know how other institutions go about identifying locations for material not housed in a container, such as ledgers or artifacts?
