    How to modify the normalization rules for the ‘Subject’ field to include subfield v and for the 'Genre' field to display 655 field in Primo VE

    Created By: Amanda Swann

    In Primo VE, MARC fields mapped to ‘Subject’ display subfield $$v as a separate field.

    It is possible to change this using the display normalization rules.

    Go to ‘Manage display and local fields’ > ‘Add Field’ > ‘Add display field’ and select ‘Subject’ as the field to edit.

    You can then edit the normalization rule to include subfield v for all included MARC fields.

    The OTB rule uses the following format for all included MARC fields:

    rule "Primo VE Display - Subject 600"

                    when

                                    MARC."600" has any "a-u,w-z" AND NOT

                                    MARC."600".ind"2"  equals "2"

                    then

                                    set TEMP"1" to MARC."600" subfields "a-u,w" delimited by " " remove substring using regex "\\.+$"

                                    set TEMP"2" to MARC."600" sub without sorting "x-z" delimited by " -- "

            remove substring using regex (TEMP"2","\\.+$")                      

                                    concatenate with delimiter (TEMP"1",TEMP"2"," -- ")

            create pnx."display"."subject" with TEMP"1"

    end

     

    Change this to the following for all included MARC fields to display subfield v:

    rule "Primo VE Display - Subject 600"
        when
            MARC."600" has any "a-z" AND NOT
            MARC."600".ind"2"  equals "2"
        then
            set TEMP"1" to MARC."600" subfields "a-u" delimited by " " remove substring using regex "\\.+$"
            set TEMP"2" to MARC."600" sub without sorting "v-z" delimited by " -- "
            remove substring using regex (TEMP"2","\\.+$")        
            concatenate with delimiter (TEMP"1",TEMP"2"," -- ")
            create pnx."display"."subject" with TEMP"1"
    end

     

    You can also edite the OTB display normalization for Genre to just display MARC field 655:

    rule "Primo VE - Genre 655"

                    when

            MARC is "655"

                    then

           set TEMP"1" to MARC."655" subfields "a-c" delimited by " " remove substring using regex "\\.+$"

                                    set TEMP"2" to MARC."655" sub without sorting "v-z" delimited by " -- "

            remove substring using regex (TEMP"2","\\.+$")                      

                                    concatenate with delimiter (TEMP"1",TEMP"2"," -- ")

            create pnx."display"."genre" with TEMP"1"

    end
