    Duplicate Z308 ID’s Created When Different ID Types Are Used Across Libraries

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    When a patron with a Z308 Patron ID type 00 and a key value of NNNNNNN is loaded in XXX50, then a record with the same key value and a different type in YYY50, a duplicate record is created.

    Z308-key-types must be unique across all ADM libraries

    01. Lengthen the Aleph ID value so that it is different than its associated university ID or barcode types
    02. Alternatively, it is also possible to assign a distinct last-bor-id prefix to the Aleph ID using util g/2
