    Publishing barcode to Primo

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

    Is there a way to bring over the barcode from the item records in the publish to Primo? I have had multiple requests to build the barcode into the search index. We aren't really sure how to provide item-level information other than what comes over in the AVA.

    Including the barcode in the AVA field is not possible, but you can include it in a "Z30" field by adding the following line to your abc01 tab_expand:

    XXXX expand_doc_bib_z30

    (where XXXX is the label of the tab_expand entries used for Publishing).

    You need to make sure that the abc01 expand_doc_bib_z30 table has the following line active:

    # z30-barcode 5 space X
