    Aleph xxx50 library created as sublibrary in Alma

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23

    Problem Symptoms:
    When the Aleph-to-Alma migration scripts are run, the XXX50 ADM library is created as a library in Alma; it should be treated as an institution.  (Note:  the Alma "library" is the same as a sublibrary in Aleph.)  The $alephe_tab/tab_sub_library.lng has the following entries:
    XXX50 1 XXX50 L xxx Admin Lib                  XXX15 16T   17A   ALEPH
    MAIN  1 XXX50 L Main Library                   XXX15 16T   17A   ALEPH
    SCI   1 XXX50 L Science Library                XXX15 16B   17B   ALEPH


    Is the "XXX50 1 XXX50 ..." line necessary for the functioning of Aleph? Or could it be deleted?

    Incorrect value in tab_sub_library.lng column 2.  As can be seen in the distributed ./alephe.orig/tab/sub_library.eng , the ADM library needs to be there, but column 2 should have a value of "2" rather than "1".

    In the Aleph tab_sub_library.lng, correct:
    XXX50 1 XXX50 L xxx Admin Lib                  XXX15 16T   17A   ALEPH

    XXX50 2 XXX50 L xxx Admin Lib                  XXX15 16T   17A   ALEPH
