    Browse shelf listing ends with wrong result

    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version: June 2017 Release
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, TotalCare



    Browse shelf listing does not lead to a correct result as too less records are provided when searching for "Call number type = Other scheme".


    The Browse Shelf Listing functionality searches the call number in the holdings record 852 field according to the call number type specified as indicator. When searching for "Call number type = Other scheme" in browse shelf listing the system searches only for call numbers which have 1st. indicator  "8". 


    In order to enable Browse Shelf Listing a specific call number type has to be added. It's not possible to use this functionality for records without call number type.


    Additional Information


    You can use a normalization rule to add this indicator - if you write such a rule, you can create a process for it and run it on a set of records. For more information on normalization rules, see this helpful Online Help page and the example document attached to it:
