    Generate authority number sequence: no bib target to select

    • Product: Alma


    We want to set up a normalization process for authority records, using the routine AuthorityGenerateControlNumberSequence. There is nothing to select in the field "Bib target". How can we define the field where the sequence number should be written to.


    The "bib target" is not in use for authority number sequence, only for bibliographic number sequence.
    For bibliographic number sequence you may choose to have the sequence number either in field 035 or 009.
    In authority records there is no valid field 009. The only option is the field 035, so there is no dropdown to choose it.
