Most options under the Server Administration menu are global Sitka settings that cannot be changed locally. The exception inlcudes the call number prefix/suffix, and the Organizational Units submenu, which allows Local System Administrators to edit library contact information, hours of operation, and addresses.

There is some view-only information that is useful under Server Administration, in particular the list of Item Statuses.

Call Number Prefix and Suffix

If you library uses prefixes and/or suffixes in call numbers, you can build a standard list, which will be displayed as dropdown lists when creating/editing call number record.

This is how it looks on the call number creating/editing screen.

Create Call Number Suffix
  1. To create a call number prefix or suffix, go to Administration → Server Administration- > Call Number Prefix or Call Number Suffix.

    To view the group penalty thresholds for your library enter your library code into the Library filter. Multi-branch libraries can enter the system and then check the box to display the descendants.

    Create Call Number Suffix
  2. Click New Call Number/Volume Prefix/Suffix.
  3. Type in the Label and Label Sort Key.
  4. Choose your library as the Owning Library.
  5. Click Save.

    Create Call Number Suffix

To edit or delete a prefix/suffix, check the record, and then click Edit Selected or Delete Selected.


Call Number Prefix/Suffix created here are different from Label Prefix/Suffix created on Copy Location Editor. The former are displayed as part of call number in OPAC, while the latter are on printed labels only.
