    Question

    Number of bib headings where no appropriate authorized term was found" in the report of "Authorities - Preferred Term Correction" - what does this label say?

    Answer

    Mainly, this number appears if there is problem with an authority record, which non-preferred term was detected by the job. For example, if non-preferred term was found in the authority index, but there is a problem with authority record, i.e. non-preferred is registered in 410 and preferred in 100. In such a case the term cannot be changed to the preferred, and the record will be counted in "Number of Bib-Heading(s) where no appropriate authorized term was found".
