And are there topics that are not in the "in scope" section that need to be WRT matching?

Also exported to 3rd party systems for DD/ILL or WorldCat

We like polls!  definitely good idea, and something to run by the larger community

For single record imports, sometimes the 035 is generated multiple times

Christie Thomas (she/her)  to  Everyone 1:31 PM
It is! We see that a lot.
And even when it is in the same form.

Lynne Fors  to  Everyone 1:31 PM
And overlays can add HRIDs as 035s when they shouldn't.

The OCLC docs read to me that once the OCLC number is out of the 001 it should not have prefixes

Ann-Marie to  Everyone 1:34 PM
Also a good point, Lloyd - data migration for the existing data needs to be taken into account as well, to be sure previously loaded and newly-loaded data are being treated the same way

Jennifer Eustis (UMass/5Colleges)  to  Everyone 1:35 PM
This happened to us in the 5C. We cleaned up our OCLC numbers so that we removed the prefix to have only (OCoLC)number. Now with the 001/003 generation, we now have variations in the formats

Ann-Marie to  Everyone 1:35 PM
Really good point about ISBNs, Christie - I'm continually frustrated by how hard ISBNs are to use as matchpoints, due to having a non-number (X) in ISBN-10s, not currently normalizing between 10s and 13s, and having extraneous data like binding sometimes in the MARC $a and always in the Instance ISBN

Corrie Hutchinson  to  Everyone 1:36 PM
I’m not advocating one option over another.  Just curious about all the ways to address this issue.

Christie Thomas (she/her)  to  Everyone 1:37 PM
Absolutely, Corrie! I think it is definitely worth asking the question and understanding the impact.

Jennifer Eustis (UMass/5Colleges)  to  Everyone 1:37 PM
We sometimes end up with 3 OCLC numbers strangely enough

Christie Thomas (she/her)  to  Everyone 1:37 PM
That happens to all of us, too!

Jennifer Eustis (UMass/5Colleges)  to  Everyone 1:37 PM
Right now we can't do marc modifications on LDR, 001, 003 or fixed fields

Only for very old ones
Less than 8 digits

Ann-Marie to  Everyone 1:39 PM
Those leading zeroes are such a dang pain - and I didn't even realize they were there until I was playing with ISRI a bunch one day

Christie Thomas (she/her)  to  Everyone 1:40 PM
They are a pain! We have som many staff that rely on reporting on Excel and having those leading zeroes makes Excel reporting a problem.

Jenn Colt  to  Everyone 1:41 PM
Any of those!

Jenn Colt  to  Everyone 1:52 PM
Yeah I wondered if these are kind of the same issue in some way

Ann-Marie to  Everyone 1:53 PM
One thing that may help is automating some of the tests related to these bugfixes - if it's working, and then a change breaks it, the automated test will catch it immediately.

Jennifer Eustis (UMass/5Colleges)  to  Everyone 1:59 PM
For the 970, it would be great to discuss how we can handle the cleanup left when a job is cancelled. Right now, we've found that this is very manual and sometimes needs reports to find lost records

Jennifer Eustis (UMass/5Colleges)  to  Everyone 2:01 PM
That happens to us all the time

Lynne Fors  to  Everyone 2:03 PM
If it came up in the last week or so, it was probably me
