    External Binding-Call No. [PRB 10242]

    • Article Type: General

    • Product Version: 15.2

    When we currently bind periodicals, we have the title printed on the spine near the top and toward the bottom we print volume, nos (if applicable) and the date. Currently, we this information comes from the Description field in the item record. How do I set up LINCPlus so that it takes the "call number" from the description field, rather than from the call number field in the Item record?

    The problem was solved as follows:

    18.01 rv #12080
    17.01 rc #575
    16.02 rc #1492

    The TAB100-BIND-USE-DESCRIPTION must be set to "Y".

    Note that, even with this setting, the z30_description is used instead of the z30_call_con only in the case where the z30_call_no is blank.
