    p_course_04 missing from GUI Services & from Documentation

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 19.01

    In v.18 we had the Course-04 Service (Report of Course Reading Records that are not Linked to a Course) and our libraries used it often. In v.19 it is not available in the Services/Course Reserve dropdown as a service choice. Additionally, it is not included in the Staff Web Guide documentation for Course Reading and Reserves. Yet, we find the service on the 'a_19' tree. So, we can move it to our 'u_19' tree. But, before we do that, we want to be sure that it is still functional in v.19. If it is no longer operational, what service or function now performs this operation?

    Though the ./pc_b_eng/p-course-04.xml file exists, the job would need to be added to the Circulation menu. That would be done in ./pc_b_eng/menu-circ.xml. After these lines:

    <display>Remove items from Reserves Collection (course-03)</display>

    the following lines would need to be inserted:

    <display>Report of Course Records not Linked to a Course (course-04)</display>

    and then the pc_server restarted.

    I have confirmed that the job runs successfully in version 19, but -- at this point -- can not confirm that the content of the report is complete and correct.

    The site reporting the problem ended up with the following instead of p_course_04:

    "As course reserve records that are not linked to active course are given a status of "suppressed," libraries are now instructed to perform a CCL search for suppressed records in their course reserve libraries. These records can then be deleted through the cataloging module, should the libraries choose to do so."
