    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Description:
    The bib load (p_manage_18, etc.) removes spaces from the 010 field.

    The input 010 looks like this:

    010 L $$a 88118634

    the output, like this:

    010 L $$a88118634

    Or, for a name authority record:

    010 L $$an 88118634

    and:

    010 L $$an 88118634

    Resolution:
    The routine which preserves multiple spaces in the variable fields (010, 260, 310, 321, 362, 515, 525, 533, 76*, 77*, and 78*) by changing them to carets is fix_doc_marc21_spaces.

    You need to execute this fix as part of whatever is loading these records.
