The following page details how to create holdings records in Alma.
As Ex Libris documentation notes, "Holdings records contain the following holdings information: location, items held, publication pattern (where applicable), and notes. Holdings records are dependent on and linked to associated bibliographic records. In Alma, holdings records can be created/edited using the MD Editor, an import profile job, or the Change Holding Information job".
A common use case for creating a holdings record occur when you need to add an item to an existing bibliographic record but the none of the existing holdings records are applicable as their library and/or item location do not match your library's holdings.
