    Operator able to overlay records belonging to another owning library

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: All
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local; Total Care

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Operator is using a Cataloging security profile with locations belonging only to one owning library.
    * Operator is able to alter bib records attached to an owning library with locations not defined in the operators security profile.

    Cause:
    In Cataloging > Security > Operator Profiles > Profile Values Cont. tab. The checkbox for "Allow Bibliographic Ownership Change" is selected.

    Resolution:
    De-select the checkbox for "Allow Bibliographic Ownership Change"

    Additional Information

    In addition to allowing the operator associated with a profile to change the owning library of a bib record, this checkbox also allows the operator to change any bib, since the ability to change the owning library already effectively grants this ability.
