    POL creation for electronic resource creates duplicate portfolios

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Problem Symptoms:
    When ordering an electronic resource from the level of the BIB record, two portfolios are created. We want only one portfolio to be created. Why is this happening?

    Desired system behaviour, new in February 2014 release. In the February Release a change of system behaviour was introduced. If a BIB record has multiple 856 fields, multiple portfolios are created (one per each 856 field).

    If you want to have only one portfolio created, you need to tidy up the BIB record first and remove the unwanted 856 fields.

    Additional Information

    See February 2014 Release Notes, pp 24 ff, for more information.
