Extraneous information being inserted into MARCXML exports in some cases


Extraneous information is being inserted into MARCXML exports of resources in some cases

  • Extra "." when there is a extra line/paragraph return at the end of a note field (the exporter interprets the extra return as additional text and thinks it needs to add an ending punctuation mark)

  • Unneeded subfield b in corporate entity agent links when used as a subject or creator (a subfield b should only be in the 110, 610, or 710 export when there is a Subordinate Name 1 entry)

  • Unneeded use of roles as relators when there is not relator

, - I want to check in about this. Laney's already got a fix for the relator issue based on an earlier report from our Users Group listserv, but the other two should be addressed as well and I'm hoping they're easy fixes.

, , - I just fixed the second in the list, and am now looking at the first. Should have it by the end of the day.

Thanks, . I can jump in to assist with this, either on #3 or if you have any questions about #1 if it will be helpful.
