    Top-Level Collection - why does the Title appear to be duplicated in Primo?

    • Product: Alma


    The MARC record for a collection only has a 245a field, but when it is published to Primo a 245b is seen and it appears to be a duplicate of the 245a.  Can this 245b be removed?


    The 245b cannot be removed from the publishing process.


    When a user creates a collection, they populate the collection name and collection title. 

    The collection title is saved in the corresponding bib record of the collection, in field 245, sub-field a

    The collection name is saved on the collection level. 

    When publishing to Primo, the collection name is added in the published Marc record, in the 245, sub-field b

    So if the user puts the same values in collection name and title - then sub field a and b will be the same.
