    Item information lost in OPAC short list after binding for linked records

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    Problem Symptoms:
    For records (e.g. articles) which have a LKR ITM link to a specific item (volume, year, issue) from the serials record the according information in Opac short list disappears when the item is bound together and the issue information "gets lost".

    Serial record has 4 items for Volume 2 - Year 2012 and issue number 1 to 4

    Article record is linked to item 2.2012,3 by adding the following information to LKR field:

    When the items are bound the item is no longer displayed in the OPAC short list.


    This problem can be solved by setting parameter MATCH-Z30-ISSBD in xxx01/tab/tab100:

    !# MATCH-Z30-ISSBD
    !# Values:Y N Default: N
    !# Type: Text; Max Length: 01
    !# tab100 of library: Yes; tab100_<server_type>: No.
    ! Y = the system will ignore all analytical links except the ones to
    ! Z30-ENUMERATION-A (volume) and Z30-CHRONOLOGICAL-I (year) for the display
    ! of bound items (Z30-MATERIAL=ISSBD), which are linked to the bib-record
    ! via item link (LKR type ANA and ITM).
