    Dear all, we would like to update that in addition to what was done in the May 2020 Release, we are looking at ways to allow libraries to select if diacritics should be taken into account in the linking process. We are exploring adding diacritics matching as a condition in the authority control rules to support flexibility, setting this for specific authority vocabularies only.

    In the May 2020 Release the following capability was introduced

    UTF-8 Special Character Handling

    Alma offers a new method of handling UTF-8 special characters (with diacritics). UTF-8 special characters may be represented in both the composed or decomposed version of the character in bibliographic or authority records. Now, you have the option to configure your system with normalize on save always to save the composed version of special characters. This may be especially useful to implement to avoid the use case where multiple records are changed due to their conversion to composed representation. Such records are marked for preferred-term correction (PTC) and cause heading updates (the only difference is the composed/decomposed nature of a special character).

    See here for more details:

    Thanks for raising this topic, which Ex Libris supports in different way than via Analytics. This was also a request in the NERS 2020 enhancements, and we are now in the process of rolling out improved functionality for an easier way to leverage Alma's Search and Indication rule functionality to query down to the field and tag level.

    Improvements have been made in the November 2016 Release to the way in which the Back browser button functions while working in Alma. If a Back button exists on the Alma page, the Back browser button simulates the Back button in Alma. If a Cancel button exists on the Alma page, the Back browser button simulates the Cancel button. Otherwise, the Back browser button goes to the last Alma page in the browser’s history.

    We are having difficulties understanding the workflows and scenarios where there are fields missing. There are many existing options for exporting data in bulk from Alma (e.g. Run an export Job, export a list from the Tools option, etc...). Please provide more specific details so we can progress with our analysis
