    ILL: Source of Reference Field missing in bibliographic description

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18

    Problem Symptoms:
    When the user submits an ILL request, they have the option to include a 'Source of Reference'.
    Where can the text submitted in this field be edited?
    I would've expected to find this field on tab '2. Bibliographic Details'.


    The 'Source of Reference' is stored in bibliographic field 590 (MARC 21) and can be seen in tab '2. Bibliographic Details'
    Sometimes there is a problem in handling this field, resulting in a corrupt contents.
    The problem was solved with rep_change #2479 (Aleph 21).

    Additional Information
