Soprano release preview 10th February 2021

We’re pleased to announce that the next release of Soprano is available for preview.

This release includes the following:

  • Acquisitions
    • Changing the bibliographic record linked to an order

Acquisitions

It is now possible to replace the bibliographic record linked to an order and its items.

Now when you search for a standard identifier Soprano will search locally for the record and show you any matches. You can Select a record from the results to change the bibliographic record linked to the order and items. Note: The search does take a few seconds. We plan to improve this in a future release.

If none are found locally it will go on to search the Base databases in the order specified in SetConfig> Parameter Management> Rules> Bibliographic Search order> Acq. Auto search order. The search does take a few seconds. We plan to improve this in a future release.

When you Import a record, Soprano will load the record into the database and change the bibliographic record linked to the order and items. Please note this feature requires LDS 2.9.14.
