    What is z305_bor_type? We've never included it in previous flat-file PLIF updates and in our database, that column is mostly NULL. There are only 6 records out of 276296 that are set to non-NULL values (all of these are "01").

    The z305_bor_type is an optional field, normally used for statistical purposes, which can supplement the z305_bor_status.

    For instance, in an academic library, the bor-type could be "01" (Freshman), "02" (Sophomore), etc.

    No regular ALEPH reports include the bor_type -- though certain ARC reports do.
