The Address Source document is used to define where the address came from on a Patron document. For example, loaded from the registrar, input by an operator or patron, etc. Some or even all of your Address Sources could be identical to your Sources. The Address Source has been defined specifically for situations where you wish to preserve information from a particular Address source when overlaying existing patron data during an import. For example, data from a Source “Registrar Load” would typically have its address data identified as Address Source “Registrar Load” but you may wish to preserve any existing address whose Address Source is “Patron Supplied”. You would set your import options appropriately.

The Address Source document includes the Add/Edit Address Source tab. The system automatically enters data into both the Old and New sections in this tab. Selected data fields are available for editing.
