    Is edit history included when exporting MARC records from Voyager?

    • Product: Voyager
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, TotalCare



    Is there a way to export edit history for MARC records?


    Edit history (the information Voyager keeps for MARC records, in the AUTH_/BIB_/MFHD_HISTORY tables) is not MARC data, so it will not be included in MARC records exported.  The date/time of most recent edit is in the MARC 005 field, as part of the MARC standard.

    If you want the BIB_HISTORY (etc.) data showing which operator saved each record and when, you could create an Access report and export that as an Excel file.
