We are a Voyager site, with the Journal title left anchored index in the classic WebOPAC. As we migrate to VUfind, keenly interested in retaining the journal title index, I see at:
NLA >> title/journal_newspaper
Villanova >> Journal title
I assume both were created by crossing the title index with (Leader/07 is "s" OR 006/00 is "s") AND (008/21 is "p"+ Leader/06 is "a") AND (Leader/07 is "s" and 008/21 is n). I have a couple of questions:
>> since the index relies on accurate MARC data in the Leader and 006/008 fixed fields, was there any management needed for updating the MARC records before indexing? if yes, which?
>> was the Villanova index created as a separate index, or is similar in essence to the NLA principle (without the newspapers)? if not, how was it created?
Thank you kindly,
