    Course Reserve Base includes Suppressed records in OPAC

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 19.01

    I was just informed we have suppressed course reserve records displaying in the OPAC even though I have tab_base.eng set to not display them. 2 examples:

    LIS581-DEL – Telephone survey of residents of new york state concerning library services

    LIS537-KIM - The uses of enchantment : the meaning and importance of fairy tales (the 2nd one)

    Does something else need to be set (besides tab_base.eng) so these records don’t display?

    When I do the Command search "wst = suppressed" in the CR OPAC, I get 446 results:

    Results for your UB Course Reserve search "W-status= suppressed"; ...

    Records 1 - 20 of 446

    I should get 0 results.

    tab_base.eng has this:

    UBRSV UB Course Reserve BISON BUF30 N wpe=Fall o
    r wpe=Yearly not wst=(suppressed or deleted)

    The "wst=(suppressed or deleted)" is being applied only to the "wpe=Yearly" and not to "wpe=Fall".
    Changing it as follows corrected the problem:

    UBRSV UB Course Reserve BISON BUF30 N (wpe=Fall
    or wpe=Yearly) not (wst=suppressed or deleted)

    Note: In order to make changes to bases take effect, you need to restart the www_server.
