    How to create captions for BIB data in ARC

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    How to add captions to BIB data fields in ARC?

    The BIB data in ARC is coming from Z13 / Z13U (Short Bibliographic Record) Oracle tables.

    In Aleph 20 / ARC 2, the captions will be added to Aleph and ARC.

    1) use edit_paragraph.lng ("2" in Col.2 of in tab22) and add captions as Prefix or Suffix in Columns 4 or 5 of edit_paragraph.lng,
    2) add a generic script to add caption before $$<subfield>, and use the generic fix with fix_doc_do_file_08 in ./xxx01/tab/tab_expand /CREATE-Z13.

    In Aleph 21 / ARC 3, a new table was introduced, tab22_arc, with additional 70 BIB fields that are only extracted to ARC and are not stored in the Aleph DB. The generic script or edit_paragraph.lng can be used in tab22_arc in the same way as described above.
