    Question

    What parameters should be included for expand_doc_bib_avail? The distributed usm01 tab_expand has no expand_doc_bib_avail line.

    Answer

    expand_doc_bib_avail should definitely have:
    * the COLLECTION parameter with a value of "Y";
    * the AVA parameter with item processing statuses whose items should be displayed in Primo,
    * (possibly) the THRESHOLD parameter, with the number of items the expand should look at in checking for available items. Some sites have a very high value for THRESHOLD -- or omit it entirely.

    * a fourth possible parameter is "RESHELVING=Y"; when this is specified, Aleph checks the time since the item was returned, as described in the article  Reshelving status -- how does Aleph know? 

     

    For detailed description of the parameters see Aleph 23 Syslib Guide - Indexing on page 57 and 58.

    Additional Information

    Example:
    FULLP expand_doc_bib_avail COLLECTION=Y;AVA=BD,CT,HD,MI,MS,NE,RE;THRESHOLD=200;RESHELVING=Y
