If typing in a specific critieria on a call number, then the results don't pull back all items that should come up and/or brings you to the incorrect call
number. Only happens on those records cataloged as Other" call numbers--using first indicator of 8 in the 852.
When a CALL+ (Mfhd Call Number Browse) search is done, Voyager tries to normalize it to each call number type until it finds a call number that is a close match.
It tries to normalize the call number according to different types' rules, and does so in this order:
Library of Congress
The first call number type it normalizes against successfully (i.e. is the closest match) will be the index type used to normalize & retrieve first set of results
To get around this:
* Add ‘Other’ Call Number index (MOTH) to WebVoyage
* The same can be done for any of the other indexes (e.g MSUD).
* In Cataloging, use the Call Number Type Filters.
