    What BIB record fields will be migrated as Local Extension fields in the process of linking the Institution Zone (IZ) to the Network Zone (NZ)?


    The standard process for local extensions management in an Alma NZ topology is to make local extensions for 09x, 59x, 69x and 9xx where there is a $9LOCAL tag.
    If the 09x, 59x, 69x and 9xx do NOT have a $9 LOCAL tag, then they are not made into local extensions and instead, they are treated like a standard MARC tag in the NZ.


    Please note that the local tag is not case sensitive, either LOCAL or local can be used and considered valid.

    Additional Information

    This only applies to consortium customers who implemented a NZ and several IZs.
