    Count of Aleph Digital Metadata records


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



    Our proposed Alma contract is asking for a count of Digital Metadata records in our Aleph system.  How can we get that?


    The following can be used:

    > s+ xxx01  <where xxx01 is your bib library>

    SQL>  select count(*) from z403 where z403_usage_type = “VIEW”;  

    [If you have z403 records in your xxx30 Course Reserve/Reading library, then the same would be done to get the count for those.]

    Note:  It would seem that only Aleph sites which have the ADAM (Aleph Digital Asset Management) product would have these z403 digital metadata records.
