Definition from Sirsi Online help:

The primary purpose of the Item Type field is to identify the item's circulation characteristics. Through the Unicorn policies, the library defines rules for the loan period and fines for each item type. Additionally, the Type field is used to denote special characteristics for the workstation user or for statistical analysis purposes. All item types are defined by the library in the Unicorn policies. Typical item types are BOOK, PERIODICAL, MAP, PROJECTOR, VCR, FILM, and FILMSTRIP. When qualifying a search by item type, the search or browse will only locate titles which have at least one copy with this Item Type policy.
