    How to set the 008 field in a derived authority record

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    In GUI cataloging module in a bibliographic library when doing "edit > derive new record" and “Create a new record in the Authority DB”, a new record opens in authority library. Among other fields field 008 is opened. Where is it from? How can I change pos. 15-17?

    This field comes from xxxnn/tab/tab_tag_text, which is defined as "Definition of default tag values when creating system records". In the above case, it comes from xxx10/tab/tab_tag_text in the authority library (because we are talking about an authority record). You can change it as desired in this table.
