Rights information in MARC records to display in Alma viewer
- Rights information for digital objects may be recorded in MARC fields:
a. 540 (https://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bd540.html)
b. 542 (https://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bd542.html)
c. Possibly some other places too.
There are only limited options in Configuring Delivery Profiles Metadata for MARC profile. - https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/ProductDocumentation/010AlmaOnlineHelp(English)/030Fulfillment/080ConfiguringFulfillment/070DigitalFulfillment?uxp=true#ConfiguringDeliveryProfiles_Metadata There are no options to choose which MARC tags appear in the description area of the viewer.
We would like to be able to configure the display of these fields in the Alma Viewer.

We would also love to be able to choose which MARC fields display in the Alma Digital viewer. Other 5xx fields we would like include: 524, 580, 505, 546, 511, 518, and 508. Right now turning on or off the Notes fields turn on or off all 5xx fields except the 520 which is split out to the Description field.
Thank you for the idea. Could you possibly change the category to "Resource Management - Digital" so it would be prioritized in that context? In addition, in case we decide to expand the licences functionality to digital content, as suggested here - https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/36032197-support-best-practice-for-cc-licence-for-digital-t, would you still need to display fields 540 and 542?

Agree wholeheartedly! It would make such a difference to our functionality if we could choose which MARC fields to display.
