    Strange entries in browse shelf listing

    • Product: Alma


    There are strange entries in the browse shelf listing, more precisely in the dropdown list for call number type. In the entries "Source specified in subfield $2" you see entries that do not make sense, for example:

    • Source specified in subfield $2 - RVK
    • Source specified in subfield $2 - _RVK
    • Source specified in subfield $2 - (RVK

    Of course there should only be one menu entry for RVK.


    This dropdown menu is dynamically built based on the actual values of subfield $2. So the entries in your dropdown menu are actually existing values that you may find by entering a "0" in the call number field and clicking "Go". This way you might correct the records and change the value of subfield $2 (in the HOL record, field 852) to its regular value.
