image filename (and therefore filepath) is too long - the system cannot read/locate it during import
Forum: Multimedia

Hi Zenobia!

I've imported lots of images and have never experienced this problem. How long are the file names? Have you had success with imports before? (It sounds like maybe some are working and others aren't but I didn't want to assume.)

Cheers,
Travis

Hi Karen,
We're currently using continuous spool labels (and adhesive free tags!) with a TSC printer which is very similar to Zebra thermal printers. I run the labels/tags straight from EMu using Crystal reports, primarily for object tags and storage location labels. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. Have you begun your trial yet? Any success?

Cheers,
Travis

How are multi-part works recorded within EMu?

Category: Using EMu

Hi Lisa,
If you've gone the route of parent/child relationships for multi-part works, I've recently configured the Record Templates utility in our system and have found it to be an absolute dream for creating part records for items in our collection. It allows me to select a parent record, enter the number of child records I want, then it will "ditto" in relevant data from the parent record and it creates the appropriate relationships between records. It saves a ton of time.
Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about it!

Cheers,
Travis

Looking to improve how we use EMu to manage location stocktakes

Hi Karen,
We are using version 4.3, but we've had the Status tab for years. If you search the EMu Help file for "Catalogue module tabs" there is a page which describes some of the "standard issue" tabs, and there the Status tab is listed. The field names are a bit different than our EMu instance (a.k.a. stocktake vs. inventory), perhaps this was a customization that was made when we first migrated to EMu, who knows...
Is it possible that you have the tab and it's just hidden? Or maybe someone decided to nix it during your initial customization?
It's been very useful for us. We're in the middle of a full collection inventory, and it allows us to see progress stats based on the Inventory Date field.

Cheers,
Travis

Here's a screenshot from the Help file:

We manage inventory in the Catalogue on the Status tab. We have an Inventory Status field with 2 lookup options, Pending and Confirmed (pending just sounds more hopeful than missing or absent...), an Inventory Date field, and an Inventoried By field which links to a staff record the Parties module. There is also an inventory history table below.
During inventory we start with a Location record (Shelf or Holder, etc.), load all the object records which are located there, and then mark them Confirmed of Pending as we find each. If we find objects that are not in the list, we simply relocate them.
