    Library is not defined on server" for patron barcodes > 12 digits in Aleph 20.2

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

    When we attempt to check out a book to a patron using their barcode we get the error "Library is not defined on server".

    Note: This is only with barcodes over 12 characters: shorter patron barcodes work OK.

    Problem corrected by implementing fix_for_20.2:

    A bug was discovered in the most recent 20.2 service pack. The bug involved the loaning of items to patrons where the patron barcode was more than 12 characters. We have created a fix for this.

    The fix should be run by any library who already downloaded the service pack or will download the service pack in the future.

    Directions to install this fix may be found in the file "fix_for_20.2.README.txt" on the Doc Portal under
    Aleph > Tree Search > Download Center > Service Packs

    Note: These changes are included in v20 rep_change 3177, and will be part of the next Service Pack
