    OCLC Requests Arrive With Abbreviated Requested Send Method Field

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Some ILL Requests arrive with their Requested Send Method field truncated. This is because OCLC treats the field differently from Aleph. This field must be manually adjusted.

    In the ILL GUI > List of Requests > lower right pane, “3. Request Details” tab > “Requested Ship Method” field (Z416_REQUEST_MEDIA_SEND_METHOD), Aleph displays only the first 2 characters of the incoming APDU message “IllRequest.DeliveryService.PhysicalDelivery" (46201) field.
    See attached workaround.
