MARC custom specs November 20, 2007

Posted by Mia in ERM Module.

We’ve now working on our second sample set of marc records (includes our customized fields) from Serials Solutions, and things are developing nicely.

These records are pumped through a special local Serials Solutions load table profile that I’ve built, and with successive record testing, I’ve been tweaking that table.  It’s gratifying to see that some things do work, after all!

So we are really testing both the special load table, together with the specs that we sent to Serials Solutions. 

When an inconsistency is encountered, it somewhat tricky to tell at first if the records sent by Serials Solutions conform to our specs, or if there is some line askew in the load table, but so far, I’ve been able to isolate and revise the necessary lines.

Onwards and upwards!
