    Duplicate holdings display in OPAC for "bound-with" records

    I have just updated some bib records that now include LKR fields in order to note "bound-with" items. The links are working properly between records, but in the display for each record the location/call no. field displays twice. Can you check to see what the problem is? The parent record is 129908, the bound with records are: 63891, 129945, and 129909.

    The "How to Create Links Between BIB Records.pdf" was helpful. I followed its suggestion to link the child records (#63891, #129945, #129909) UP to the parent record (#129908), rather than linking the parent record DN to the child records. The resulting "bound with" displays in the OPAC look fine.

    Each child record also has a LKR ITM field pointing to the parent record's item record, that allows all the titles bound together to circulate as one item.

    I have deleted ABC60 64970; it was a holding record that I created early on in this process and was not related to any bib record. This has corrected the duplicate display of the location in OPAC.
