It is known that some library automation systems strip out the standard number, or change the format of the standard number during the export process. The exceptions in this batch indicate a problem with the standard number field.
RECOMMENDATION: Encourage library to examine the export process set-up to be sure the standard number is getting exported. If library staff do not know how to check the export set-up, or seem not to understand how the records are changed upon export, encourage them to contact the technical support offered by their automated library system vendor. Suggest they work with the library system vendor to fix export process to produce complete MARC records.
