    ALEPH calendar popup and dates before 1700


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care


    We have ISSUES fra 1682, and we found that it is impossible to get a date from the calendar before 1752 .
    And if you try to enter the date directly without the calendar popup, you can't write less than 1800.


    In the case the library owns issues/items prior to the year 1900, this are considered rare items, which are usually not loaned. In this case in order to represent the correct holdings which includes the items prior to 1900, it is suggested to place manually the field 866 either in the HOL record or in the BIB record, which will include the correct holdings statement.
