    Question

    How does Cataloging Differences effect Primo Central records linking?

    Answer

    Primo Central records are coming from various Publishers/Aggregators. Metadata cataloging practices can differ from one Publishers/Aggregators to another.

     

    Example

    One publisher catalog a whole item, while other may catalog the same item in separate sub sections. This may cause linking issues.

    Cataloging difference between publishers is a known issue in the industry and there isn't much that we can do to resolve the difference, as both publishers are correct.

     

    Note:

    It is Ex Libris policy not to interfere with cataloging practices of publishers.

    In specific cases, customers may consider contacting the publishers directly.
