    Preventing creation of CATALOGER holds for FAST-CAT-created bib records

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

    We recently had our circulation fast cataloging template updated. It's now automatically placing a hold for the cataloger on each item entered. We don't want it to do this. Can you reset this so that it doesn't happen?

    I just went into the Hold requests for cataloger and see that this has been happening for quite a while and there are about 140 hold requests for cataloger. These take a fair amount of time to delete. Is there any way that you--or I--can delete all these holds?

    I have deleted the CATALOGER holds on abc50:

    abc50@ALEPH201> delete from z37 where z37_id = 'CATALOGER';
    138 rows deleted.

    , have changed the FAST-CAT-HOLD-ID to "NOCAT" (per KB 16384-16657), and have restarted pc_server_6991.
