Hi, all. I'm wondering whether anyone else is using a UNIMARC Z39.50
target and having a similar problem. We're running Koha 3.22.04.000.
I've set up a target for Bibliothèque nationale de France using the
Record type: Bibliographic
I got the configuration information from
In the Koha cataloging module, I can retrieve records from BnF via
Z39.50, but Koha doesn't display the results correctly. Most of the
columns are blank. The author column contains data from the 100 field.
In UNIMARC the 100 field contains general processing data, not the
author. It appears to me that even though the target is configured as
UNIMARC, Koha is trying to display the results as MARC21.
Is this a bug in Koha, or is there something else I need to do? I get
the same results when I try the ByWater Solutions demo system. BTW,
here's a copy of my YAZ session.
