    Question    
    We are wondering how column 8 of tab_sip2_sort_bin functions.
    How can we configure the sorter to, for instance, pick up items with a DVD prefix (as $$kDVD$$hPN1997.B15524)?

     

    Answer    
    The tab_sip2_sort_bin-mechanism checks the exact content of the call number of the item (Z30_CALL_NO) - including the subfield - against col. 8 of tab_sip2_sort_bin and truncates it. 

    If, for example, items starting with $$kDVD (as $$kDVD$$hPN1997.B15524) should be put in sort bin 26 you have to define: 

    26 # # # ##### ##### ## $$kDVD 

    This line above would not apply to items with call numbers as "$$hDVD" or "DVD".
