In Primo VE Paging doesn't display correctly in "Format" display field

  • Product: Primo VE
  • Product Version: Primo VE
  • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local 

 

Description

It can happen that the paging doesn't display correctly in Format display field in many UNIMARC records, only the "p." remains.

 

The "Format" display field (tag 215 in UNIMARC) in Primo VE is displayed without pagination, in few words, the number of page are not present.

In Alma the data is correct, for example you can have

215 __ |a 262 p. |d 24 cm

In Primo VE is displayed as:

Format: p. ; 24 cm

 

The problem is present when there is a pagination and not a volume.

In Alma

215 __ |a 1 vol. (123 p.) |d 18 cm

in Primo VE

Format: 1 vol. (123 p.) ; 18 cm

Resolution

To correct:

  1. Go to

Alma Configuration - Discovery - Display Configuration - Manage Display and Local Fields

  1. Select Format field
  2.  Substitute the existing Normalization rules only for 215 field with the following:

rule "Primo VE Display - Format 215"

when

MARC "215" has any "a,c,d,e"

then

    set TEMP"1" to MARC."215" sub without sort "a"

    set TEMP"2" to MARC."215" sub without sort "c"

           

    add prefix (TEMP"2",": ")

    set TEMP"3" to MARC."215" sub without sort "d"

    add prefix (TEMP"3","; ")

    set TEMP"4" to MARC."215" sub without sort "e"

    add prefix (TEMP"4","+ ")

    concatenate with delimiter (TEMP"1",TEMP"2"," ")

    concatenate with delimiter (TEMP"1",TEMP"3"," ")

    concatenate with delimiter (TEMP"1",TEMP"4"," ")

            remove substring using regex (TEMP"1","[#^<>]")

            add prefix (TEMP"1","&#8205;")

create pnx."display"."format" with TEMP"1"

end

  1. Save and apply the rules
