The call number mapping configuration maps call numbers from the bibliographic record to the holding record. The mapping table is read from top to bottom, stopping once it finds a match.
Customizing Call Number Mapping
Configuration -> Resources -> General -> Call Number Mapping
To move a mapping, use the up or down arrow. Alma reads the mapping from top to bottom.
Adding a mapping
Scroll to the bottom of the page. Fill out the form as follows:
852 1st indicator - determines the call number type (0 = Library of Congress, 1 = Dewey Decimal). See MARC21 for holdings
for more information.
Bib Field to Copy - determines the MARC field in the bibliographic record to be copied to the holding record.
Bib Subfield to Copy - subfields in the call number MARC field to be copied to the holding record.
852 Subfield Destinations - maps the subfields to the 852 holding record.
Description - Free form field, enter a description.
The question mark (?) serves as a wild card.
Alma adds the new mapping to the bottom of the mappings page. Use the up/down arrow to place the mapping into the appropriate spot.
