What is the difference between the 0350 and the 035A indexes?
There are two indexes in Voyager relating to the 035 subfield a: the 0350 index and the 035A index.
|0350 index||035A index|
|System number for deduping (035a)||System number (035a)|
|Includes text in field in normalized heading (e.g., OCOLC)||Ignores text / removes text in normalized heading|
|Text factored in for matching and de-duping||Only digits/number factored in for matching and de-duping - may lead to false matches if records in database from multiple sources|
Use 0350 System number for deduping (035a) in System Administration > Cataloging > Bibliographic Duplicate Detection.
Existing record in database: 035 $a (OCoLC) 123456789
Incoming record: 035 $a (CStRLIN) 123456789
|If you are ...||then ...||because ...|
|matching on 035A index||incoming record will match existing record||only the digits/numbers are part of normalized headings and will match.|
|matching on 0350 index||incoming record will not match existing record||source text (OCoLC and CStRLIN) are part of normalized headings and will not match.|
