    Empty tab_z105

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Description:
    Our PWD50 tab_z105 has nothing in it.

    I've seen mention of z105 in regard to SDI. Are there other reasons why we might want to be using the z105 MESSAGE_LIBs things?

    Are there things that happen regularly which I'm not aware of, or would an empty table simply indicate that we are not using it?

    Resolution:
    There are two uses of z105 messaging by North American libraries:

    a) type 4 (authority-to-bib)

    b) type 8 (ADM-to-bib, for SDI). See KB 8540, 16.02 rep_change 703, for details on SDI messages. Since pwd50 is a pw_library / usr_library -- not an ADM library -- there are no z105 messages relevant to it and it is correct for its tab_z105 to be empty.

    See KB 5741 for a general discussion of the z105.
