    Voyager to Alma Migration Query: Bib Records Without MFHDs

    Created By: Laura Guy

    When migrating from Voyager to Alma, it is highly advisable to have holdings records (MFHDs) attached to bib records.  Records without MFHDs may be excluded from some Alma workflows, and may display in undesirable and possibly confusing ways in Discovery interfaces.

    The following query, which can be run using Voyager's Prepackaged Access Reports, will list bibliographic records without MFHDs.

    SELECT BIB_MASTER.BIB_ID, BIB_TEXT.NETWORK_NUMBER, BIB_MASTER.CREATE_DATE,
    BIB_MASTER.SUPPRESS_IN_OPAC
    FROM (BIB_MASTER INNER JOIN BIB_TEXT ON BIB_MASTER.BIB_ID = BIB_TEXT.BIB_ID)
    LEFT JOIN BIB_MFHD ON BIB_MASTER.BIB_ID = BIB_MFHD.BIB_ID
    WHERE (((BIB_MFHD.BIB_ID) Is Null)); 

    For other queries that may be useful, see my "Surviving Almanado: tips for a successful pre-implementation" presentation's Accompanying Materials.
