Solved it! Ha, of course it was that simple. Thank you so much, Dan, and everyone that gave input.

Hi Bailey,

Have you confirmed that the checkbox "Pre-populate Records?" is checked in user preferences? That may be the issue.

Hello All,

I utilized the “edit default fields” function to create a default resource record but it is not working for *most* of our users. It does not work for the majority of the team including me – when I create a new resource record the default fields don’t show up – but it does work for another admin. When she creates a new resource record, the default fields I implemented show up for her.

Anyone dealt with anything like this before? Thanks!

Smith College Special Collections

The Special Collections reading room is closed. As of March 18th, all Special Collections staff will be working remotely. Smith course support is our primary responsibility at this time.

Minimal reference services will be managed remotely by staff. Reference inquiries that require access to physical materials will be held in order of when they were received and responded to once the campus is reopened. Expect a four to six week delay, minimum. There is a moratorium on digitization services.
