    Records with Armenian script fail MARC21 character set validation

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager

    Problem Symptoms:
    * MARC21 character set validation enabled in Cataloging
    * Armenian characters returned as invalid when Save to DB

    Cause:
    Working as designed. Armenian characters are not part of MARC-8 repertoire and so are not part of MARC21 Repertoire.cfg file.

    Resolution:
    Only characters that map from MARC-8 to Unicode (and back) can be included in the default MARC21 Repertoire.cfg file distributed with Voyager clients.

    Additional Information

    If validating characters outside the MARC-8 repertoire does not interfere with character mapping for other purposes (export to other systems, etc.), can add characters to file locally to support validation in the Cataloging client.
