This policy specifies how records in the Network Zone (NZ) should be suppressed in different situations.
Procedures for overlaying a bibliographic record in the IZ and/or NZ.
This policy ensures operators working in an Institution Zone do not delete Network Zone records that appear bare, but in fact may be linked to bound-with titles in a local IZ.
Synchronization of IZ/NZ brief level rules will reduce troubleshooting, better prepare the Alliance for future shared/collaborative work efforts, and aligns with the Alliance’s Work Smart initiative.
Alliance libraries must use the standard method of creating bound-withs in Alma to ensure linking information is stored in the IZ and immune from overlay.
