    Bib heading with birth/death date not linked to matching authority record

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Description:
    On 8/18 a death date (2004) was added to the authority record for Martin, Agnes, 1912-

    On 8/22 the death date (1989) was added to the authority record for Cowley, Malcolm, 1898-

    As of this morning (8/25) neither set of entries has been changed [ <Jerry Specht > ]

    Resolution:
    Based on the z01_display_text it would seem that the cun01 z01 for $$aMartin, Agnes,$$d1912-:

    02 z01_rec_key \
    03 acc_code ..............AUT
    03 alpha .................L
    03 filing_text ...........MARTIN AGNES 1912
    03 filing_sequence .......00001
    02 z01_acc_sequence ........023014868
    02 z01_hash ................373058206273
    02 z01_aut_tag .............
    02 z01_rec_key_4 \
    03 aut_library ...........-CHK-
    03 aut_doc_number ........000000000
    ...
    02 z01_display_text ........$$aMartin, Agnes,$$d1912-

    should be linked to the cun10 authority record for $$aMartin, Agnes,$$d1912- :

    02 z01_rec_key \
    03 acc_code ..............GEN
    03 alpha .................L
    03 filing_text ...........MARTIN AGNES 0001912
    03 filing_sequence .......44497
    02 z01_acc_sequence ........001244497
    02 z01_hash ................975735206273
    02 z01_aut_tag .............COR
    02 z01_rec_key_4 \
    03 aut_library ...........CUN10
    03 aut_doc_number ........000265322
    ...
    02 z01_display_text ........$$aMartin, Agnes,$$d1912-

    It seems to me that the reason it is not is that the z01_filing_text does *not* match. The bib record has "MARTIN AGNES 1912" while the authority has "MARTIN AGNES 0001912".

    This is because the cun10 tab_filing routine 11 has an "expand_num" line:

    11 F expand_num

    while the routine used for the filing of AUT headings in the cun01 tab_filing (routine "01") does not.

    You need to either delete the "11 F expand_num" line from cun10 tab_filing, or add a "01 F expand_num" line to the cun01 tab_filing.

    I, personally, think that deleting the "11 F expand_num" line from cun10 tab_filing would be preferable, since I think that most sites do not have this....

    In either case, you will need to run the Headings jobs in the library where the change is made to the tab_filing in order make it take effect.
