New features and enhancements

Configure display name for Talis reading lists 

As an addition to functionality for displaying Talis reading lists released with the January 2022 version of Record Manager you can now select a display name for your Talis Aspire Reading Lists. Current options are either "Reading Lists" or "Resource Lists".

You can find this setting in the Service Configuration under Third Party Integrations, see details in the Service Configuration guide.

Bug fixes

System error message when adding over fifty barcodes to a Local Holdings Record (LHR)

When attempting to save an LHR that had more than fifty new barcodes in 8XX fields in the LHR editor, a system error message may appear. Now, an LHR with any number of barcodes in the 8XX fields can be saved in an LHR. 

Original RDA Toolkit direct field link resolving to login screen

When the Original RDA Toolkit field help link was used within the MARC 21 bibliographic record editor, the link would resolve to the main RDA Toolkit login screen instead of directly to the specific field. Now, the field help link will resolve directly to the specific field help documentation on the Original RDA Toolkit site. 

System error message when adding a new bibliographic record from the Saved in Progress file

Some users reported an error message appearing when adding a new bibliographic record from the Saved in Progress file to WorldCat. The record they attempted to add to WorldCat was successfully added but it did not appear it was added because of the system error message. Now, the record will be added to WorldCat and the appropriate success message will appear.
