    MARC .mrc format when emailing long records from the OPAC

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

    We noticed that the .mrc format issue with long records that we noticed in v.18 is also in v.20 and we wanted to ask if there is a way to resolve this issue.

    Unfortunately there is no way to email records with long fields (more than 950 characters) from OPAC (or GUI) in MARC format. Long fields are split by the email server, making the MARC format unreadable. Records without long fields can be emailed in MARC format.
    As a work-around, long records can be saved to PC in the MARC format, and then emailed as an attachment.
