    In most aspects the Voyager MARC 21 mapping is same as the Generic MARC mapping. Only the exceptions are listed below.

    Library Level Availability
    949
    If you use the 949 for other purposes, this tag can be replaced by another tag in extract procedure.
    The Library Level Availability field subfields are created as follows:
    $$I Institution – based on institution look-up table based on 949 $a
    $$L Library – based on library lookup table based on 949 $$b
    $$1 Sublocation – from 949 $$c
    $$2 Call number – from 949 $$d
    $$S Availability status – based on 949 $$e
    $$3 No. of items – from 949 $$f
    $$4 no of unavailable items – from 949 $$g
    $$5 multi-volume flag – from 949 $$h
    $$6 number of loans – from 949 $$i
    $$9 – For more information, refer to section Adding $$9ONLINE to Library Level Availability.
    $$P location priority – from 949 $$p
    $$X Original institution source code (Voyager instance) – from 949 $$a
    $$Y Original library source code (Voyager location) – from 949 $$j
    The Voyager availability field has the following subfields:
    • $$a – A code supplied as a parameter to the extract procedure. This will be used to generate Primo institution code.
    • $$b – owning Library display name
    • $$c – location display name
    • $$d – call number
    • $$e – availability status (see below for definition)
    • $$f – number of items for location
    • $$g – number of unavailable items for the location
    • $$h – multi-volume flag (Y/N)
      • If any item associated with the availability field has a different enumeration, chronology, and year field than another availability field, then the Multi-volume flag will be Y. This also applies if the enumeration and chronology fields for all items are empty.
      • If all items associated with the availability field have the same enumeration, chronology, and year fields (including empty enumeration and chronology fields) then the multi-volume flag will be 'N'.
    • $$i – number of historic loans (for ranking/sorting)
    • $$j – location code
    • $$p – location priority

    Definition of an Unavailable Item

    An item is unavailable if it matches one of the following conditions:
    • It has one of the following statuses:
      • Charged
      • Renewed
      • Overdue
      • Recall Request
      • Hold Request
      • On Hold
      • In Transit
      • In Transit Discharged
      • In Transit On Hold
      • Claims Returned
      • Missing
      • Lost--Library Applied
      • Lost--System Applied
      • Damaged
      • Withdrawn
      • At Bindery
      • Scheduled
      • In Process
      • Call Slip Request
      • Short Loan Request
      • Remote Storage Request
    • It belongs to bibs or mfhds that the system suppresses from the OPAC.
    • It has a MODIFY_LOCATION_ID that is one of the Excluded Happening Locations or it has no MODIFY_LOCATION_ID, but its CREATE_LOCATION_ID is one of the excluded Happening Locations.
    • It has a MODIFY_OPERATOR_ID that is one of the Excluded Operator IDs or it has no MODIFY_OPERATOR_ID, but its CREATE_OPERATOR _ID is one of the excluded operator ids.
    • An operator recently modified its holdings or bib record at a happening location in the set of Excluded Happening Locations or an operator in the set of Excluded Operators most recently modified it.

    Availability Statuses from Voyager

    There are three availability statuses: "available", "unavailable", or "check_holdings."
    • If all items are available, the status will be "available."
    • If all items are unavailable, the status will be "unavailable."
    • If the Multi-volume flag is 'Y', and any items are available, but not all, the status will be "check_holdings."
    • If the Multi-volume flag is 'N' and any items are available, the status will be "available."
