    PST field not generated for certain HOL record

    xxx01 bib record 004322291 has two HOL records (004021287 and 004021976) attached to it, but only a single PST field is being produced by the expand_doc_bib_loc_n_x (PST) expands. Why is this?


    The PST expand is intended to show each unique location/collection/call number for a bib record.

    Since the HOL 852 $$b and $$c are the same in these two HOL records and the z30_sub_library and z30_collection are the same in the items attached to each of them, only one PST is generated.

    This one PST gives the user a correct picture of the holdings for this bib. If the user wants to see the actual items, they can click on the items link, where they can see the items.
