Codes in each type of record can be used to regulate whether the record displays in the local system, and also to regulate display of the record in the Central Catalog. The following codes regulate suppression and display. They may also be called "contribution codes."
|Type of record||Suppression code|
Within OhioLINK, values are also coordinated for these codes. That is, all OhioLINK institutions use the same scheme of values. Use of other values in these fields will result in the display of the record at the central site, whether or not that was the coder's intention. The following codes are used:
|Code||Label||Display in local catalog?||Display in Central Catalog?|
|s||SUPLOC/NOCENT||no (configured by Innovative)||no|
Codes no longer in use - do not use these historical codes. If these codes are found in your local system, please update them to an appropriate current suppresion code. Use of historical fields will result in the display of the record in the Central Catalog, whether or not that was the coder's intention.
