We export our MARC records from SirsiDynix Symphony with the items populating 999 fields.
The location of each item is in the 999l field, so we set the collection solr field in the marc_local.properties file as follows:
collection = 999l, location_map.properties, first
Our location_map.properties file contains mappings for the location code to location description.
Then in our facets.ini file, we changed the "collection" fact to have a description of "Location":
collection = Location
I hope this helps.

> Do you have location information in the MARC records you import into VuFind? If so, you can load that into a facet and then use faceted browsing to limit by location. It’s just a matter of adding some mappings to import/marc_local.properties and possibly setting up a translation map to convert location codes into human-readable strings.
