    Question

    How are bib, z30 (Item), z108 (Course), and course doc records connected to each other?

    Answer

    The xxx30 course doc record is connected to the ADM/item record via an ITM link if the item is owned by the library and has an xxx01 bib record. Otherwise, as in the case of a professor's copy, the link is an ADM-type link. These links can be seen in util f/3/12 ("Display Links Associated with a Record").

    The xxx50 z108 (Course) record is linked to the xxx30 Course doc record via xxx30 z11 (Direct index) "CNO" and"CNO-S" index entries. These CNO fields can also be seen in the xxx30 Course doc record itself.

    The Course doc record can be viewed in xxx30 util f/4.

    Additional Information

    Examples:

    ADM# 000344906 is linked to xxx30 doc 000018879 via an ITM link:
    ENTER HOME LIBRARY : xxx50
    ENTER DOC-NUMBER : 000344906
    XXX01 000344906 ADM
    XXX30 000018879 ITM

    And xxx30 doc# 000018879 has z11 CNO records for course HAR3680:
    SQL-xxx30> select z11_rec_key from z11 where z11_doc_number = '000018879' and z11_rec_key like 'CNO%';
    **** Hit return to continue ****

    Z11_REC_KEY
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    CNO-SHAR3680 0002
    000018879

    CNO HAR3680
    000018879
