    Heading Enrichment: Why some of the fields are not being enriched with sub-field 9?

    • Product: Alma

    Question

    The publishing from Alma to Primo is being enriched differently for different terms, even though they are linked to the same authority record.

    Why are some of the fields being enriched with sub-field 9 but others are not?

    Answer

    When two or more of the terms in the original MARC21 record are linked to the same authority record, only one of them will trigger the enrichment and the others will be ignored. This is in order to prevent duplications in publishing.

    See the following example, taken from the publishing information of a bib record:

    <datafield tag="650" ind1=" " ind2="0"> 
    <subfield code="a">Metis</subfield> 
    <subfield code="x">Ethnic identity.</subfield> 
    <subfield code="0">(uri) http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects/sh88007566</subfield> 
    <subfield code="0">(uri) https://open-na.hosted.exlibrisgroup.../lc/sh88007566</subfield> 
    </datafield> 

    <datafield tag="650" ind1=" " ind2="0"> 
    <subfield code="a">Metis</subfield> 
    <subfield code="x">Migrations.</subfield> 
    <subfield code="0">(uri) http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects/sh88007566</subfield> 
    <subfield code="0">(uri) https://open-na.hosted.exlibrisgroup.../lc/sh88007566</subfield> 
    </datafield> 

    <datafield tag="650" ind1=" " ind2="0"> 
    <subfield code="a">Metis</subfield> 
    <subfield code="x">Social life and customs.</subfield> 
    <subfield code="0">(uri) http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects/sh88007566</subfield> 
    <subfield code="0">(uri) https://open-na.hosted.exlibrisgroup.../lc/sh88007566</subfield> 
    <subfield code="2">LCSH</subfield> 
    <subfield code="0">41-LIBRARY_OF_CONGRESS-sh 88007566</subfield> 
    <subfield code="9">Y</subfield> 

    Above are three subject headings, all are related to the same authority record (sh 88007566). Therefore, only one of them will be enriched with $9 and the authority data ($2 and $0).
