CUNY Technical Services: Alma Data Review

Project description

General Data Review

Please check your IZ bibliographic records and inventory data if data elements have been migrated as expected. Pay special attention to the following areas:

A long bibliographic record - either having a long field (e.g. a single long 505 or multiple 505 fields) or having many fields (e.g. many 500, 700 fields.)

A record that contains diacritics in a heading field (1XX or 7XX fields, etc.) or in a descriptive field (245, 500, etc.)

A record that contains CJK, Hebrew, Arabic, or other scripts data in an 880 field.
Records with LKR fields (for Bound Withs or Analytics)
A record with a large number of items attached (e.g., more than 50 item records). Check if all items have been migrated.
A serial record with items having chron & enum data in description field. Check if numbering information migrated as expected.

NZ Multi Match Report

Multi-Match report contains a list of bib records that were not linked to the Network Zone (NZ) because there are multiple records in the NZ that match your bib record’s match point. There are a variety of reasons for the multiple matches to happen. We need each institution to check and verify the types of multiple records and recommend possible solutions. Please locate your institution's multi-match report on the right column and check at least 50 records. Take notes as needed and bring to the meeting on March 25, 2020
