    BIB-AUT match


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



    Aleph 22 User Guide - Authorities - Chapter 3.2.3 Finding a Match states: 

    The match between the bibliographic heading and the authority heading is based on the normalized form and the filing form of the headings. These must be identical in both libraries. This means that the normalization and the filing forms of the headings index in the bibliographic database must be created in the same way as the normalization and filing forms of the general (GEN) headings index in the authority database. 


    This should read as follows: 
    BIB normalized form = AUT (GEN) normalized form 
    BIB filing form = AUT (GEN) filing form
