Patron Deposit Forms: full control over the normalization rules on all Marc21 fields
When using NRs on Patron Deposit Forms, it is not possible to apply these rules on fixed fields. On the other hand, some rules are running in the background and set indicators or add new fields upon existence of some subfields (eg. 245 $c) that cannot be turned off.
- Allow normalization rules for the point of import for all fixed fields (that would add the 006, 008, LDR and so on)
- Remove all out of the box normalization rules for all fields (e.g. field 245 sets the indicators 1 | 0 and creates a 100 field with the indicators 1 | _ if a field 245 $c is present. This might be true for some publications but it is certainly wrong for others).
Normalization Rules should be applicable to all Marc21 fields and no background rules should run on Marc21 patron deposit forms.

Just logged a case and this answers my question. Not sure I agree with the last statement about no background rules running. I can see why the submission date and user info might need to be added to the bib record on approval. I need 008 and LDR fields to be updated.
Any background rules that set incorrect/wrong values should be fixed.
