    What is expand_doc_bib_z30? 
    What fields can be included in it?


    The expand_doc_bib_z30 (specified in tab_expand) uses the ./xxx01/tab/expand_doc_bib_z30 table to expand fields from the z30 (Item) record to the BIB record for display and indexing.

    * Note that different expand_doc_bib_loc expands already include the sublibrary, collection, call number, and copy number; the utility of expand_doc_bib_z30 is that it could be used for other fields.
    * For additional details, see KCS How To Article "Add Entries to expand_doc_bib_z30"
    * Though any z30 field can be included in the expand_doc_bib_z30 table, only the update of certain z30 fields triggers the creation of a bib z07 and bib indexing. For additional detail, see Q&A Article "Which z30 Field Updates Trigger BIB Index Update?"
