    Notes Regarding Subfields And Indicators

    • If no subfields are listed explicitly, data from all non-numeric subfields will be displayed.
    • If a field or a subfield is repeated, all instances should be displayed.
    • Subfields are listed in alphabetical order for the sake of clarity, but should be displayed in the order they are recorded in the source record.
    • If all the subfields or specified non-numeric subfields are taken, numeric subfields are not considered.
    • If a numeric subfield is specifically included, no other numeric subfield will be included.
    • If a numeric subfield is excluded, the mapping will take other numeric subfields.
    • If no indicators are defined, all indicators will be taken.

    Duplicate Record Detection Vector

    Currently two types of record matching vectors exist:
    • T1 – for non-serials
    • T2 – for serials
    The mapping of record to T1 or T2 is based on the format type. The format type is based on the extraction procedure that creates the format (FMT) field from pos. 6 and 7 in the leader.
    • T1 – All formats except for SE
    • T2 – E

    The publishing platform removes all leading and trailing spaces and packs double spaces.

    Normalization Routine #1

    1. Remove non-filing characters
      Remove all text that appears within <<>> or within the Unicode characters 0088 and 0089.
    2. Delete the following characters: '
    3. Change the following characters to blank: !@#$%^&*()_+-={}}[]:";<>?,./~`
    4. Convert characters using the FILING-KEY-01 character conversion table.
    5. Change characters to lower case.
    6. Remove all spaces.
    7. Take first 10 and last 10 characters.

    Normalization Routine #2

    1. No non-filing characters in Unimarc.
    2. Remove all text that appears within <<>> or within the Unicode characters 0088 and 0089. For example:
      <datafield ind1="1" ind2="0" tag="200"> <subfield code="a"/></datafield>
      <datafield tag="200" ind1="1" ind2="0"> <subfield code="a">
      <<The>> book : its history in England in the middle ages!
      </subfield>
      </datafield>
      Should become:
      book: its history in England in the middle ages
    3. Delete the following characters: '
    4. Change the following characters to blank: !@#$%^&*()_+-={}}[]:";<>?,./~`
    5. Convert characters using the FILING-KEY-01 character conversion table.
    6. Change characters to lower case.

    Normalization Routine #3

    1. Delete the following characters: '
    2. Change the following characters to blank: !@#$%^&*()_+-={}}[]:";<>?,./~`
    3. Convert characters using the FILING-KEY-01 character conversion table.
    4. Change characters to lower case.

    Normalization Routines for FRBR

    The publishing platform will delete leading and trailing blanks and remove double spaces.

    Author Part Normalization

    1. Delete characters: | [ ] '
    2. Change characters to space: $~'^%*/\?@.:;<>{}}-()"!¿¡,
    3. Convert characters using the NACO_diacritics character conversion table.
    4. Change characters to lower case.

    Title Part Normalization

    1. Remove non-filing characters.
    2. Remove all text that appears within <<>> or within the Unicode characters 0088 and 0089.
    3. Delete characters: | [ ] '
    4. Change characters to space: $~'^%*/\?@.:;<>{}}-()"!¿¡
    5. Convert characters using the NACO_diacritics character conversion table.
    6. Change characters to lower case.

    Defining the Delivery Category Algorithm

    The following "out of the box" algorithm will be used for UNIMARC. It should be possible to distinguish between the following resource types:
    • Physical items (except for microfolm)
    • Microform
    • SFX resources
    • Online resources
    The algorithm is read from top to bottom. Once a record is assigned a category the algorithm stops.
    When there are several definitions for the same category the priority is given to the "safest" option.
    In the algorithm priority has been given to online resources based on the assumption that users most often prefer this option. Primo will include a display of the location and availability status of physical items.
    The format is based on the definitions used for each resource type. For more information on these definitions, see LDR Positions.
