    Imported e-book records overwrites existing records in Aleph (Libris)

    When importing records for e-resources from Libris (Swedish National Union Catalog) the new record overwrites the old record (which should not happen) when the record’s Control No. (MARC field 001) is the same as the number in 035 subfield 9 of an already existing record in Aleph. Why?


    Field 001 from incoming record is checked against field 035 from database record. The match is done using the following paramaters:

    LRIMP match_doc_uid I-UID

    Check only against field 001. In this case the entry in xxx01/tab/tab_match should be:
    LRIMP match_doc_uid I-NR

    Additional Information

    Specific problem with importing records from Libris using elib procedures. Only relevant for Scandinavian customers.
