Media Information

Media Type Record the type of media that the patron works with. To select a media type, open the drop down list and click on the desired choice. The list of media type can be altered in the Media Types Code Table. Click here for more information.
Community The area in which the media type spans. Television for example would span the entire city, so the user might put a city name in the community field, or the media could be a community paper and it only spans one or two communities, so the user would put the community name(s) in the field. The Community defaults to the City entered in the patron window.
Last Contact Last time the media member was contacted.
Lead Time Number of days (in advance) the media members need to be aware of an event in order to advertise it.
Priority Rating media contacts for accurate distribution of limited advertising materials.
Notes Relevant notes about the media contact.
