    Empty tab_z105

    Our PWD50 tab_z105 has nothing in it.

    I've seen mention of z105 in regard to SDI. Are there other reasons why we might want to be using the z105 MESSAGE_LIBs things?

    Are there things that happen regularly which I'm not aware of, or would an empty table simply indicate that we are not using it?

    There are two uses of z105 messaging by North American libraries:

    a) type 4 (authority-to-bib)

    b) type 8 (ADM-to-bib, for SDI). See KB 8540, 16.02 rep_change 703, for details on SDI messages. Since pwd50 is a pw_library / usr_library -- not an ADM library -- there are no z105 messages relevant to it and it is correct for its tab_z105 to be empty.

    See KB 5741 for a general discussion of the z105.
