    Conversion of MAB records after switching to GND

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local; Total Care

    Problem Symptoms: 


    After switching to GND the conversion from authority tags in bib records (from MAB to MARC21 format) does not work anymore.

    Cause:
    The relevant tags in MAB which are linked to the authority database got new subfields, they are not included in the standard conversion of xxx01/tab/tab_fix_mab2usm.

     


    Resolution:

     
    1. Implement the new programs for export MAB data, which convert the new subfields to the old regular MAB-Export.
    table tab_fix_mab
    100 fix_doc_mab_gnd_build_100
    104 fix_doc_mab_gnd_build_100
    ...
    200 fix_doc_mab_gnd_build_200
    204 fix_doc_mab_gnd_build_200
    ...
    800 fix_doc_mab_gnd_build_800
    902 fix_doc_mab_gnd_build_902
    907 fix_doc_mab_gnd_build_902


    2. Before performing the conversion of bib records with tab_fix_mab2usm export the records with xxx01/tab/tab_fix_mab. The entries in xxx01/tab/tab_fix can be:

    MABUS fix_doc_mab FUNC=OUTPUT,FILE=tab_fix_mab
    MABUS fix_doc_mab FILE=tab_fix_mabaseq
    MABUS fix_doc_convit FILE=tab_fix_mab2usm
