    How to bring item data into holdings records

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Creation of a file of holdings records with item barcodes, with the expand_doc_bib_z30 including the holdings number (in addition to the z30_barcode), so that it can be matched to the holdings file.

    Add the following to the ./xxx01/tab/expand_doc_bib_z30 file:

    Y z30-hol-doc-number                  x space      N


    Additional Information

    The expand_doc_bib_z30 program reads the ./xxx01/tab/expand_doc_bib_z30 table to see what z30 columns should be expanded into what field bib "Z30" / $$x field/subfields.

    Though the distributed ./usm01/tab/expand_doc_bib_z30 includes certain z30 columns, *any* z30 column can be specified in this table -- including z30-hol-doc-number-x. Just make certain that the subfield value chosen (in column 3) is not already used by some other (uncommented) z30 column.
