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.
