    Alma A-Z list is sorting by stop words

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo

    Problem Symptoms:
    In Alma A-Z list sort stop words are being taken in to account. For example, when browsing the letter "T", the word "the" is included in the sort.

    The stop words were not removed from "sort" section in the PNX of Alma records. For Example:
    <title>The Example</title>

    Verify that the stop words will be removed by the normalization rules.
    In Primo: the sort section should match the one in Alma MARC - Template.
    In Alma: the published records should have the information needed according to the normalization rules. For example, non-filing text will be removed if there is indicator 2.
