If there are no portfolios, the value of this field is empty.
    LC Classification Top Line Stores the combined LC code and classification numbers until the first period which is followed by a letter. If there are no periods then the entire string is taken until there is a space. The length is limited to 50 characters.
    For example:
    • if the LC Classification is | a HB3821.I8 |b R3 then the LC Classification Top Line will be HB3821
    • if the LC Classification is | a DF506.5 |b .G27 then the LC Classification Top Line will be DF506.5
    • if the LC Classification is | a N 7353 |b .K513 1965 then the LC Classification Top Line will be N
    • if the LC Classification is | a NOT YET ORDERED then the LC Classification Top Line will be NOT
    The LC Classification Top Line will contain one value. For MARC21, if the bibliographic record has:
    • both 090 and 050 then the LC Classification Top Line will come from 090
    • 050 and not 090 then the LC Classification Top Line will come from 050
    • 090 and not 050 then the LC Classification Top Line will come from 090

    Local Param 1-10 This field allows you to enrich the bibliographic and holdings information exported to Analytics with additional information from MARC fields in Alma."
    In order to make use of this field, you must contact Ex Libris Support and supply them with a three-digit MARC field code (for example, 901). (The field does not need to include a 9.)
    The fields can be number and code fields but not control fields. Therefore, the field must be greater than or equal to 010, because 00X are Control Fields and 01X-09X are Numbers and Code Fields.
    Following configuration of this field by Ex Libris Support, its value will be available in analytics.
    Subfields can be maintained in the Analytics fields identified for Local Param. When this capability is implemented, fields/subfields appear in Alma Analytics with the Alma subfield delimiter (either $$ or ‡) used to delineate the subfield content. Contact Support to enable this feature. Note that reindexing is required to fully implement this capability.
    Note that the local param fields are not related to the MARC type of the record. For example, if field 913 is defined to be in local param 1 then field 913 will always be in local param 1. This is the case if the record is of the type KORMARC, CNMARC, UNIMARC, MARC21, and so forth. It is not possible to have different sets of Local Param 1-10 for different types of MARC.
