    Aleph to Alma migration: HOL record lacks 852 field


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



    If a BIB record is linked to HOL and ADM records, but the linked HOL record does not have an 852 field, will the migration create an 852 field? 


    Items not linked to any holdings record in Aleph get a new holdings record based on the item information.  The migration will assign the default library (defined in the Migration Form) and an UNASSIGNED location.  


    But itn the case where the HOL record exists and the items linked to it (Z30-HOL-DOC-NUMBER-X), the items remain linked to that record.  These items will get the default sub-library and the unassigned location. 


    It's better to correct such records prior to the migration.
