Does Aleph require that BIB and ADM sys numbers be aligned?
No, Aleph does not require that the BIB and ADM system numbers be aligned.
The system assigns an identification number, which is unique within each of the ADM, BIB, HOL, AUT, and so on, libraries. (The number is assigned using the library's last-doc-number" counter in util g/2)
When creating an ADM record, the system will try to assign it the same number as that of the BIB record to which it is linked.
If that number is already in use, then the system uses the util g/2 last-doc-number counter of the ADM library to assign a number.
