    856 Links in Alma BIB don't display in Primo

    • Product: Alma



    Links for finding aids, etc, display and work however, 856s aren't displaying in Primo.
    This is a physical (only) record and not part of a P2E migration (i.e. no portfolios attached).
    For example:
    785 |t Burnt Swamp Baptist Association.
    856 |3 1996-2000 |u |z Access electronic version here.
    856 |3 2001-2002 |u |z Access electronic version here.


    This is an 856 MARC indicator issue.  
    At least one indicator of 1 of 4 is needed for these to appear in Primo.  
    Change the 856 the indicaors to 40 instead of ‘blank blank’ will enable these links to display in Primo.


    Additional Information

    Alternatively, you could generate portfolios for these 856 links; cut changing the indicators via norm rules will be easier.
