    Overlaying brief with full bib causes record to not be found in limit

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.0

    Problem Symptoms:
    * For some records, if brief bib is overlaid with a full bib, the resulting record is not found when using certain limits that should find the record.

    This behavior is a result of Issue 16384-21379 / VYG-4616.

    Issue VYG-4616 is resolved in Voyager 9.0.0 and higher.

    Additional Information

    Replication steps:
    1. In Cataloging, import a brief bib (see attached).
    2. Import a full record to use to overlay the brief record.
    3. Verify that this record can be found using the limit Medium: Videorecording.
    4. Overlay the brief bib with the full bib record using Record > Overlay Bibliographic Record.
    5. Search for the overlaid record again using Medium: Videorecording. It will not be in search results.

    To make records retrievable again, make a copy of the record, re-link the holdings to the copy, and delete the original.

    Other information:
    Similar to Issue 16384-16337 : CAT: Overlay bibliographic records attached to PO affects limits. Not replicable for all records.
