When retrieving records from OCLC via Z39.50 in the GUI and copying them to ABC01 they have a FMT of ‘XX’.
Is there a way to get the correct FMT in these records?
1) In $alephe_root/gate, add the following line to your oclc configuration file:
["OCLCB" can be a name of your choice.]
2) Add the following line to tab_fix in the ext01 tab directory (where "OCLCB" matches the name you chose above):
You can add other fix lines if you wish, such as a fix_doc_do_file_08 routine to convert the OCLC 001 field to an 035.
A more detailed explanation using the Library of Congress Z39.50 is attached.
