We are in the process of implementing EDS as a discovery tool in our system and are seeing an issue with our suppressed records. We are asking EBSCO to refer to the Innovative/Sierra Bibliographic Control Field 031, labeled BCode3 or BibCode 3 where if BCode3 = n, Discovery does not display results from our Catalog.

The response we have been given is "We cannot apply a suppression filter based on a Sierra setting (the connection we have created to your ILS unfortunately does not support that functionality)—rather, we need a specific MARC field/value to do so."

With the number of Innovative libraries with Sierra potentially using EDS not being able to refer to the BCode3 field in seems odd to us. Are there other Sierra libraries out there that have heard similar? EBSCO has suggested we revise all of our suppressed records with a custom MARC field to create a filter they can work with. Have others experienced the same? or perhaps better?

EBSCO has a work-around. The were able to correct ours, it just took a while. I was told by our tech librarian that we didn't have to do any mapping to a MARC field. I don't know about the connection to your ILS they are referring to, but maybe you can ask them to look at our fix.

That is indeed interesting to hear. We were specifically told they have no solution other then using MARC data we customize for them. I would be interested in having them look at the solution in place for you though - what library system was this work-around put in place for?

When you export your catalog data to EDS, you simply use an export mapper that maps your BCODE3 data to a specific MARC field and they can get the information from there. If your default export doesn't already do this, Innovative should be able to set this up for you.

Brandon,
Thank you! It only seemed logical that there was a simple solution.

I just received the same response in an e-mail this morning, but haven't really had a chance to dig into it properly yet.Jeremy GoldsteinData Curation LibrarianMinuteman Library Network508-655-8008 ext.222[email]discussions@innovativeusers.org[/email]> wrote:
