    ARC: number of records and items per call number: records count twice - can this be prevented?


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23

    In ARC, in getting statistics by call number with 2 item statuses, the request counts the number of records and the number of items. 
    When a record contains both item statuses, the record is counted twice. 
    How to count a record only once ? 


    The packages "Inventory" (or "Collection Management") are designed to get measures from the items, not bibliographic information, therefore the result will be the number of items for the specific item status. 

    There is no possibility to combine the Bibliographic information with item status in the package 'Bibliographic information'.
