    Question

    What is the coding for the two MARC indicator fields in the WebVoyage displaycfg.xml and displayHoldings.xml files?

    Answer

    The two indicator fields can equal 0-9 to display only when said indictor matches that number, a pipe (|) can indicate a null field, and an X is used as a wildcard.

    Additionally, the subfield field contains all subfields that you wish to display.

     

    Example 1:

    <displayTags label="Author:">
    <displayTag field="100" indicator1="X" indicator2="X" subfield="aqd"/>
    </displayTags>

     

    Example 2:

    <displayTags label="Author:">
    <displayTag field="100" indicator1="0" indicator2="X" subfield="abcdefgjklnpqtu" redirect="author" redirectOn="abcdefgjklnpqtu"/>
    <displayTag field="100" indicator1="1" indicator2="X" subfield="abcdefgjklnpqtu" redirect="author" redirectOn="abcdefgjklnpqtu"/>
    <displayTag field="100" indicator1="3" indicator2="X" subfield="abcdefgjklnpqtu" redirect="author" redirectOn="abcdefgjklnpqtu"/>
    </displayTags>

     

    Example 3:

    <displayTags label="Other Author(s):">
    <displayTag field="700" indicator1="0" indicator2="2" subfield="abcdefgjklmnopqrst" redirect="author" redirectOn="abcdefgjklmnopqrst"/>
    <displayTag field="700" indicator1="1" indicator2="2" subfield="abcdefgjklmnopqrst" redirect="author" redirectOn="abcdefgjklmnopqrst"/>
    <displayTag field="700" indicator1="3" indicator2="2" subfield="abcdefgjklmnopqrst" redirect="author" redirectOn="abcdefgjklmnopqrst"/>
    </displayTags>

     

    Example 4 (Add vxyz subfields):

    <displayTags label="Subjects:">
            <displayTag field="650" indicator1="X" indicator2="0" subfield="abcvxyz" redirect="subject" redirectOn="abcvxyz">
                <subfield value="v" preText="--"/>
                <subfield value="x" preText="--"/>
                <subfield value="y" preText="--"/>
                <subfield value="z" preText="--"/>
            </displayTag>

    </displayTags>

     

    Example 5:

        <displayTags label="Notes:">
            <displayTag field="500" indicator1="X" indicator2="X" subfield="a"/>
        </displayTags>

    Note that in this last example multiple 500 fields will display in the order they occur in the catalog record.
