In a Union catalog or Union view, multiple bib records display for a title when there should be just a single (preferred) record, with multiple holdings.
What should we configure to correct this?
Does this happen with all search results?
-- Does the base being used begin with "U-"?
-- It *must*, such as "U-USM90".
Otherwise, it is not considered a union base and the z120 records will not be used.
-- Does this library's tab100 have UNION-LIBRARY=0?
-- It can *not*. It must have UNION-LIBRARY "1" or "2"?
-- Do SQL> select count(*) from z120;
-- Is the result 0?
-- Yes: p_union_01 and p_union_02 need to be run to build the z120.
-- No: Do SQL> select count(*) from z127;
-- Is the result is 0?
Yes, you need to run create_z127 and load_z127_to_mem
* No (some results *are* properly de-duplicated):
-- When you do util f/4 for this library's z120, do these non-de-duplicated bib records appear in each other's z120,
with one of them being the preferred for the other(s)?
-- Yes: Do util f/4 z127 for these specific bib records
-- Do the z127's have the same preferred doc as the z120's?
-- If no, you need to run create_z127 & load_z127_to_mem
-- No: These records did not score high enough in the match algorithm to be considered a match: The
$alephe_tab/union_global_param specifies a "match_prog" for this library. Each match_prog has
a "weights" table associated with it. For instance, if the match_prog is "union_match_edina", then the
$data_scratch tab_edina_mo_weights and tab_edina_se_weights tables will be used in determining if the
records should be considered matches and should share the same z120.
