- Subject: duplicate detection in Extended Approval Plan
I am looking at our Extended Approval Plan interface and would like to
compare experiences with other libraries that use it. The duplicate
detection doesn't seem to be working quite the way folks here thought it
was and not as well as we think it should.
When we load our brief bibs and order records (from YBP), up to 30%
percent of them are flagged as potential duplicates while very few of
them actually are. To take a recent example, 56 records loaded, 16
flagged as duplicates, only one actual duplicate. How does this compare
with your experience?
Looking at the report, about half the records flagged as potential
duplicates are by "series key" and the other half by "title" (not title
key as folks here believed). Are these the criteria other libraries are
I am wondering why in the world the software is checking on the series
key at all--that seems a good way to flag a false duplicate every time!
I can see in the load table where the title checking is enabled, but I
don't see anything about the series key.
I welcome any observations.
