They only create items if you have item data attached in the 952
field. So if you want to upload a bunch of records with items attached
you need to add 952 fields to your records, 952a and 952b and 952c are
the subfields for location, 952p is for barcode.

If your MARC records don't have item information, that is really the
only way to do it. I would recommend using a tool like MarcEdit to add
item information to your marc records before importing them
