Different formats don’t roll up together – RESOLVED

Observation: Caused by slight differences in titles such as punctuation or “a novel” appearing in some bib records and not others, and differences in author names, such as some OverDrive records not using authorized versions of names.

Reported: 10/2/2021

Resolution: Enhancement on 11/22/21 should have improved this by normalizing the authors and titles. Punctuation will be ignored, phrases like “A Novel” will be ignored. Updates to the MHLS catalog to fix errors in bibliographic records or standardize the information in these fields will also help the results roll up. Please report any roll-up issues you find by emailing techsupport@midhudson.org or cataloging@midhudson.org.
