    Aleph expand_doc_bib_avail parameters

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23


    What parameters should be included for expand_doc_bib_avail? The distributed usm01 tab_expand has no expand_doc_bib_avail line.


    expand_doc_bib_avail should definitely have:
    * the COLLECTION parameter with a value of "Y";
    * the AVA parameter with item processing statuses whose items should be displayed in Primo,
    * (possibly) the THRESHOLD parameter, with the number of items the expand should look at in checking for available items. Some sites have a very high value for THRESHOLD -- or omit it entirely.

    * a fourth possible parameter is "RESHELVING=Y"; when this is specified, Aleph checks the time since the item was returned, as described in the article  Reshelving status -- how does Aleph know? 


    For detailed description of the parameters see Aleph 23 Syslib Guide - Indexing on page 57 and 58.
