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

Problem Symptoms:
* Two records with same ISSN in WebVoyage: same serial but title changed.
* Newer record correctly links to older record in Related Bibs section in WebVoyage.
* Older record, however, links to itself rather than the newer record.

Cause:
ISSN is not in the subfield defined in the Bibliographic Record Linking profile.

Resolution:
1. Look at both record in Cataloging.
2. Note newer record contains ISSN in 022 subfield y.
3. Open System Administration > Search > Bibliographic Record Linking > ISSNPREC > Field Definitions.
4. Note that profile is set to match 785 subfield x in source record to 022 subfield a in target record.
5. Resolve:
a. Edit bibliographic record in Cataloging so 022 subfield a contains matching ISSN.
b. Edit Bibliographic Record Linking profile in System Administration so profile will find a match. Note this solution will impact all record linking that uses this profile.
