I'm not sure which listserv to send this out on so I will safely start with Circ.  :)

We are running into issues with non-fiction items on our title paging lists not reflecting material type.  Staff will be searching for a book only to find out that the item is actually a DVD.
Prior to RDA changes the material type always showed up on the list.  Now, if the material type is not indicated in the call #, we have no way of knowing if our non-fiction items are books, DVDs, etc.

Is there any way to change what information appears on the title paging list?
