You Atlas Systems Implementation Coordinator will configure your reading rooms and locations for you. The documentation below provides an overview of how these settings are configured.

Reading Room and Location Configuration

The reading rooms and locations that are displayed during user sign in are configured in the CustomDropDown table in the Customization Manager.

The list of reading rooms is specified by entering new records in the table as described below:

  • GroupName: ReadingRoom
  • LabelName: A description or name that is displayed in the dropdown selection in the client. 
  • LabelValue: The value that is written to the ReadingRoomHistory table. This is ideally a code of some sort with no spaces/punctuation due to how locations are configured.

The list of locations for each reading room is specified by entering new records in the table as described below:

  • GroupName: A combination of Locations and the LabelValue from the reading room entry.
  • LabelName: A description or name that is displayed in the dropdown selection in the client.
  • LabelValue: The value that is written to the ReadingRoomHistory table.

The example below shows the relation between reading rooms and locations:
