    OPAC course reserve records Full View lacks location


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care


    There is no holdings info (sublibrary) on the Full View of Record and Brief View for course reserve records. 

    How to bring this sublibrary info to the opac pages?


    {Note: If it's just library-owned / abc01-linked titles which lack the location, consult article "Location not included in Course OPAC Full View for library-owned (abc01) titles" (KB 16384-49009).}

    To get the location on the *Full* view you need to have the proper values in the edit_doc_999.eng and tab_expand.

    Your abc01 edit_doc_999.eng has these lines:

    ## ITM1  D LAvailability        Y E
    ## PST## L LLocation/CallNumber Y L

    These same lines need to be added to the abc30 edit_doc_999.eng.

    Similarly, the expand_doc_bib_loc_n_x lines WEB-FULL lines from abc01 tab_expand need to be added to your abc30 tab_expand. As noted in KB 16384-13441, the expand_doc_merge_union_crs needs to be first. Thus, you would have:

    WEB-FULL expand_doc_merge_union_crs
    WEB-FULL expand_doc_bib_loc_1_a
    WEB-FULL expand_doc_bib_loc_1_b
    WEB-FULL expand_doc_bib_loc_1_b2
    WEB-FULL expand_doc_bib_loc_1_c
    WEB-FULL expand_doc_sort_loc_b
    WEB-FULL expand_doc_bib_loc_3_a
    WEB-FULL expand_doc_bib_loc_cleanup
    WEB-FULL fix_doc_do_file_08 delete_cat_field.fix

    To get the location on the *Brief* View, you need to have the proper values in the www_tab_short.eng and tab_expand.

    Thus, you would add this line from your abc01/tab/www_tab_short.eng to your abc30 www_tab_short.eng: 

    8 L Locations 00 00 2000 L ## PST

    And the expand_doc_bib_loc_n_x lines WEB-BRIEF lines from abc01 tab_expand to your abc30 tab_expand. 
    As noted in article "Problem displaying location/call number in OPAC brief view for course reserves" (KB 16384-13441), the expand_doc_merge_union_crs needs to be first: 

    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_merge_union_crs
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_yr 008,260##c
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_type tab_type_config
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_split_external
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_bib_loc_1_a
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_bib_loc_1_b
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_bib_loc_1_b2
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_bib_loc_1_c
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_sort_loc_b
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_bib_loc_2_a
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_bib_loc_3_a
    WEB-BRIEF expand_doc_bib_loc_cleanup
