Reformat an LHR

When you manually reformat a local holdings record, you direct the system to automatically resort the variable fields in correct numeric order and correct minor errors.

  1. From the Local Holdings Records accordion, click the Edit button (Edit button) for the local holdings record you want to move.
  2. From the Record drop-down menu, select Reformat. A confirmation message appears which states that the local holdings record was reformatted successfully.

Errors corrected

When you manually reformat a local holdings record, the system makes these minor corrections:

  • Converts "pipe" character ( | ) in URLs is automatically to code %7C, because the pipe character is not part of the set of ALA diacritics and special characters that are valid in the client.
  • Changes subfield codes in uppercase to lowercase.
  • Changes fixed field values in the wrong case (uppercase versus lowercase) to the correct case.
  • Deletes leading blanks or blanks between values in fixed field elements. Trailing blanks remain.
