    Primo Publishing, expand_doc_bib_subtype, subfield 2 in MAB environment

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21


    In order to publish Aleph information for browse lists to Primo new routine expand_doc_bib_subtype was implemented with rep_change 2112 in Aleph 21. It retrieves a list of subject fields from the record (the list is provided as a parameter) and adds the subject type to subfield $2 of each field.

    Why is the field not added in a MAB environment.


    Subfield 2 is created from the 2nd. indicator of the main subject field. As MAB does not use this indicator the subfield is not created.
