01:31 mtompset Greetings, #koha.
01:32 eythian  hi
03:44 mtompset Oops... Greetings, eythian. I didn't see your reply until now. Silly me working on non-coding aspects of ministry. :)
03:44 mtompset I have a short presentation tomorrow.
03:51 mtompset Is the transfer of the system happening now, eythian?
05:52 mtompset Have a great day (24 hour period), #koha.
08:57 cait     good morning #koha
17:08 * Oak    waves
17:24 * cait   waves
20:52 * cait   waves at kathryn
20:52 kathryn  hiyeeeeeeeeeeeee cait :D
20:52 cait     :)
20:52 * cait   shares some christmas cookies with kathryn
20:52 kathryn  (I'm feeling quite chirpy today)
20:53 kathryn  oh mmnn thanks cait
20:53 cait     I have 2 weeks of vacation starting tomorrow - feeling quite chirpy myself :)
21:05 pablito  I would like to allow search by call number in Koha 3.14, what tag must I use to tag my call number in order to allow this?
21:05 cait     pablito: your callnumber should be in your items, in think it's 952 o or p
21:05 pablito  ok
21:06 pablito  now, I have a non-standard call number, it's not Dewey or LCC, would this still work?
21:08 cait     pablito: yes it should still work, if you want to specify it's another classfication you can create a new value for 952 $z
21:08 cait     with generic sorting
21:08 cait     you can do that in administration
21:09 pablito  so what should I put in 952 $z?
21:11 pablito  should my value for 952 $z the same for all records?
21:11 pablito  for example: sts
21:12 pablito  or should it be the specific call number of the corresponding book?
21:12 cait     $z should be a pull down - it's created form what you have under administation classification sources
21:12 eythian  hi
21:12 wahanui  bonjour, eythian
21:12 cait     in z is your classification schema - the call number goes into the call number field
21:12 cait     so if you were using ddc, $z would be ddc
21:13 cait     as you are using your own local one, you could create a new classification source local and use generic as sorting... I tend to do that for libraries here
21:13 cait     oh sorry
21:13 cait     i confused fields :(
21:13 cait     $2 and you can use z = Other/Generic Classification Scheme
21:14 cait     just looked it up in the interface right now
21:14 cait     and it can/should be the same for all your items using the same classification scheme
21:14 cait     you can define the default in the system preference DefaultClassificationSource
21:21 pablito  ok, I'm under  Home › Administration › Classification sources
21:22 pablito  I have z = Other/Generic Classification Scheme
21:22 cait     yep you can use that
21:22 cait     put that into the sys pref
21:22 cait     DefaultClassificationSource
21:22 cait     and then don't worry about $2
21:24 pablito  ok, so I set DefaultClassificationSource to Other/Generic Classification Scheme
21:25 cait     yep
21:25 cait     the sorting might not be perfect, it really depends on your callnumbers
21:25 cait     but wihtout writing your own sorting algorithm... it might be the best you can do
21:29 pablito  suppose, I don't put anything in the $z subfield, would I still be able to search by call number?
21:32 cait     hm yes, but sortin gmight not work at all
21:33 cait     there are 2 field sin the database, a callnumber field and a normalized version of the call number for sorting, the second gets automatically generated from the first
21:33 cait     using rules defined by $z
21:33 cait     so if the field was left empty, that could cause sorting to not work at all. I would use z.
21:33 cait     rules dfined by the value in $2 i mean... i keep confusing z/2 here... doesn't make it easier to understand me I guess
21:34 pablito  so my custom classification scheme is called STS
21:35 pablito  i should set $2 to STS
21:35 pablito  and leave $z untouched
21:35 pablito  is this correct?
21:35 cait     yes, sorry for talking about $z... when I meant $2
21:36 cait     might be just to late for subfield codes here :)
21:36 pablito  now, do I need to set the 084$a field with my call number?
21:37 cait     you can
21:37 cait     but i think it#s not searchable in koha currently
21:37 pablito  ah
21:37 cait     but it could still be useful
21:37 pablito  but for universality, would you recommend it?
21:37 cait     if you set 084$a you can use the itemcallnumber system preference
21:38 cait     and it will get copied to your callnumber field in the item on cataloguing
21:38 cait     btw where are you from pablito?
21:39 pablito  I'm in Israel for the moment
21:39 pablito  I'm trying to setup koha for a local seminary here
23:17 dcook    morning #koha
23:51 dcook    gpl?
23:51 wahanui  i heard gpl was a bit vague on modifying trademarked logos.
23:51 dcook    gpl3?
23:51 wahanui  hmmm... gpl3 is rangi's default
23:51 dcook    Hmm
23:51 dcook    I would've sworn that there was somewhere on the wiki from which to copy the new gpl3 statement
23:52 jcamins  @later tell cait My mackarel was *awesome*! http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/06/13/recipe-of-the-day-mackerel-fillets/
23:52 huginn   jcamins: The operation succeeded.
23:53 jcamins  @later tell cait Also, there was only one bone in each fillet. Apparently I'm learning from Masterchef!
