    Problem with reading room items after upgrade to Aleph 20

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    We recently upgraded to Aleph 20. Now we have problems with items which were already in the reading room in Aleph 18. The restoration of the previous item sublibrary does not work correctly when returning the item from reading room in Aleph 20. For items checked out to the reading room in Aleph 20 the functionality works fine.

    Upgrade Express kit lower than 1.33 when using Reading room functionality

    To upgrade the Aleph 18 data accordingly, step 1021 was added to UEX kit 18 to 19 ver 1.33 (released in March 2011).
    Customers using the reading room functionality in Aleph 18 should make sure to use UEX kit 18 to 19 ver 1.33 (or higher) when upgrading to Aleph 19 resp. 20.

    Additional Information

    In pre Aleph 19-versions two functionalities are using field Z30 in ADM record to store previous item information:
    - Temporary change of item information in GUI CIRC
    - Reading room functionality

    This was causing some problems in case both functions were used for the same item. Therefore this was changed in Aleph 19 and reading room is using field R30 now.
