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?
