key description displayed notes

-DNP

Do Not Publish

Titles with this status will not be supplied to third party OPAC or WorldCat

-ERRX

Error During Export

This indicates that an error occurred whilst trying to generate the MARC record for the title. Refer to the Internal Notes on the title record for details.

The title will also be added to the “Title Export Issues” folder for the day on which the error occurred.

-EADD

-RETD

Failed To Remove Holding

-HUPD

Holdings Update

When the WorldCat metadata API job next runs, it will attempt to update the holdings with additions and/or removals for this title (and its children).

-PEND

Pending Authorisation

When synchronising with WorldCat, titles must be “Authorised”. This carries out some essential validation on the MARC data to reduce the occurrence of rejections. Once authorised the record will be set to –RFP or RTP, depending on whether or not it has already been sent to WorldCat.

-RFP

Ready For First Push

Titles with this status have not yet been sent to an external OPAC. Before they are sent they will require an accession date within the configured range.

RTP

Ready To Update

Titles with this status are due to have an update sent to the external system during the next daystart run.

-DELD

Record / Holdings Removed

Titles with this status have been successfully sent for deletion to the third party FTP OPAC or the WorldCat metadata API has removed all of its holdings from WorldCat.

REFH

Refresh Holdings

The WorldCat metadata API job will refresh all holdings for this record. It will supply all currently associated symbols for this record and its children, together with a removal of holdings for any symbols removed since January 1st, 2013.

-REJD

Rejected

The record was sent to Batchload for WorldCat, but was rejected. Refer to the Internal Notes on the Title for further information.

REM

Remove Record / All Holdings

The record (or its holdings) will be removed from the external system the next time the process runs.

-ERRD

Responded With Error

The WorldCat metadata API responded with an unknown error. If this occurs more than the configured number of times in a 24 hour period, then synchronisation will be automatically stopped pending investigation.

-SENT

Daystart has supplied the record to Batchload for processing.

No further action is anticipated.
