    Course Reserves "Catalog New" truncates long URLs

    (Versions 19 and 20) When using the "Catalog New" feature in GUI Course Reserves to create a new Catalog Record, Tab 3 ("Links +Course Notes") allows for a URL to be added to the record. We are finding that, when we add very long URLs, the URL is truncated and the link does not work.

    This problem is corrected by version 20 rep_change 2566. (The length of the URL field, previously limited to 100 characters, is increased to 500 characters.)

    rep_change 2566 will be included in the August 2010 v20 Minor Release.

    The solution for v.19 (and an interim solution for v.20) is to push the record to the Cataloging Editor and re-add the full URL address to the 856 tag.
