    Pulling holdings records that belong to a specific sublibrary/collection

    I've got a request to pull specific holdings records that belong to a specific sublibrary and collection. I believe the best way to do this is by looking at that information in the item records and linking it back. What I don't know is the best way to make use of the linker tables in abc01 and abc50 to connect to abc60. What is the best way to get this data?

    Do you want to produce a list of these records (or export them)? If so, you don't need to look at the associated item records: the HOL record, 852 field, contains the sublibrary code (in the $$b) and the collection code (in the $$c).

    You can use p_ret_01 (in abc60) to locate HOL records with a specific sublibrary/collection and then p_print_03 to print or export them.
