    ACQ request, similar title

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20


    Placing an ACQ request which is responded with message “A match was found” leads to a link to a wrong title.

    Cataloged title (already in the database): Eduard von der Heydt
    Title in acq request: Leben und Werk des Freiherrn Eduard von der Heydt

    Request was added to title „Eduard von der Heydt“. Why?


    This is according to check of duplicate records in table xxx50/tab/tab_locate:

    USM01 245## a wti= locate_str_1

    Locate_str_1 means that only the two longest words from field 245## are taken into consideration when checking for duplicates.

    You may select parameter locate_str_0 (Takes subfield content as is) instead.

    Additional Information

    For explanation of different parameters see header of tab_locate.
