    Synonyms -- v18 and v19

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Please can I have the full path and file name of the synonyms file - After a while searching the documentation etc I can't find this snippet of information.

    The synonyms functionality is described in the OPAC SYSLIB chapter (version 16 and 17).
    The functionality is managed and maintained from the the Utilities menu in the Web Staff interface. The synonyms are stored in the Z970 Oracle table.
    UTIL-B was removed from display in the UTIL menu (although can still be run via "util b" from the command line or by entering "b" after running "util") since the functionality is maintained via the Web interface.
    The advantage of keeping the Web option is due to the possibility of adding synonyms using different encoding and diacritics.
    The utilities for the synonyms allow to add a group, or unlink an entry from a group. They don't allow to add a word to an existing group.

    Ex Libris does not provide a default list of synonyms within ALEPH500.

    This utility is available in version *19* from the Web Staff menu, with some additional CJK options.
