    CAT: Headings reference info missing for See Also references

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.0

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Saving an authority record results in Auth/Ref/Note notation changing to Reference for its See Also entries.
    * Resaving the authority linked from the See Also reference results in the same behavior happening to its See Also references.

    Cause:
    This behavior is the result of Known Issue 16384-20801

    Resolution:
    Fixed in Cataloging for 8.2.0.

    If you are on Voyager 8.2.0 and experiencing this issue, please open a Support Incident via eService and request the fix for Issue 16384-20801. This fix requires a subsequent HEADINGS regen for full resolution.

    Additional Information

    Replication steps:
    1. In Cataloging, identify two authority records where each is a See Also reference for the other ? i.e., ?Food supply? and ?Agriculture?:
    150 _ 0 $a Food supply
    550 _ 0 $a Agriculture

    150 _ 0 $a Agriculture
    550 _ 0 $a Food supply
    2. Search for each and note that each comes up in the headings list as Auth/Ref/Note.
    3. Open ?Food supply? authority record and click Save to DB.
    4. Search for ?Agriculture? and note that now, it comes up in the headings list as Reference.
    5. Now open ?Agriculture? authority record and click Save to DB.
    6. Search again for ?Agriculture? and note that it now correctly shows Auth/Ref/Note again
    7. Search for ?Food supply? and note that now it shows in the headings list as Reference.
    8. You can go back and forth saving these records and never will the two show Auth/Ref/Note at the same time until you do a headings regen.
    9. If you look at the headings in the database, you'll see that only the See reference is noted in HEADING.OPACREFS and HEADING.STAFFREFS:
    SQL> select * from heading where heading_id in (196053,252562);

    HEADING_ID
    ----------
    NORMAL_HEADING
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DISPLAY_HEADING
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I HEADING_TYPE STAFFBIBS OPACBIBS STAFF OPACR CREATE_DA UPDATE_DA
    - ------------ ---------- ---------- ----- ----- --------- ---------
    196053
    AGRICULTURE AND STUFF
    Agriculture and stuff
    S lcsh 13 13 SR SR 17-DEC-12 18-DEC-12

    252562
    FOOD SUPPLY
    Food supply
    S lcsh 29 29 SNAR SNAR 17-DEC-12 18-DEC-12

    10. When you save the "Agriculture" record again, you'll note that the STAFFREFS and OPACREFS fields change for both headings.
    SQL> select * from heading where heading_id in (196053,252562);

    HEADING_ID
    ----------
    NORMAL_HEADING
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DISPLAY_HEADING
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I HEADING_TYPE STAFFBIBS OPACBIBS STAFF OPACR CREATE_DA UPDATE_DA
    - ------------ ---------- ---------- ----- ----- --------- ---------
    196053
    AGRICULTURE AND STUFF
    Agriculture and stuff
    S lcsh 13 13 SNAR SNAR 17-DEC-12 18-DEC-12

    252562
    FOOD SUPPLY
    Food supply
    S lcsh 29 29 SR SR 17-DEC-12 18-DEC-12

    Workaround: HEADINGS regen will correct the reference notations.
