Why am I receiving the error "ELvl (Leader/17) - invalid code" or "ELvl (Leader/17) - not authorized to use I" when I try to validate a record?

  • You receive an error when you try to validate a record using ELvl I or J
Applies to
  • WorldShare Record Manager
  • Connexion client

The encoding levels I and J were decommissioned in a recent validation update. You should leave the encoding level blank instead.

You can find more information about encoding levels on the BibFormats Elvl:Encoding Level page.
