[Koha] Field 952$o is blank

Hi Nalisha,

I think what you see there is from the itemcallnumber system preference:

There is no callnumber in your item, but when you open to edit it, Koha
detects that and pulls the callnumber from the MARC record as a
suggestion you can use. This is not so obvious, when you work with
existing records, so can be easily missed.

The MARC fields the suggestion is pulled from, are set in the system

Hope this helps,
