    Words in overlaid brief bibs not deleted from keyword index

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.1.0

    Problem Symptoms

    • Keywords in brief bibliographic records still appear in keyword index after brief bibs are overlaid by full bibs.
    • Searching for words that are no longer in bib records' MARC fields, such as requesting professors' names, still brings up results
    • Sizes of files on system indicate need for keyword regen.


    Keywords retained in index even though keywords are no longer in the record.


    Keyword regen needed.
