    Default library to search in Opac after login

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20


    After login to the Opac the default library is not the required one but a standard library from server. Why?

    Several libraries (databases) are defined on the server and you can open the Opac and select one of those libraries. After logging in with a patron user/barcode the standard library from server is assigned and no longer the selected one.


    When signing in to the Opac the starting database (Base name) is the library which is added to the patron profile. If no profile is assigned for the user the library assigned in standard profile "Aleph" will be the default library to which you are connected.
