Spectrum: Current Location

Definition: The place within the organisation where an object is currently located.

How to record: Use a single term or code. Maintain a list of standard terms or codes. Ensure that all locations can be specifically described with unique terms.

Examples: U.23.2.4a room 1, case 3, shelf 4

Use: Record once for any object at any one time. Information about the Current location may be retained but it is only the single Current location which does not have a Removal date associated with it which is the 'active' Current location.
