13:53 embiopterid Hey all.  I've noticed that a z39.50 search often seems to fail to retrieve records even when they definitely exist on the server.  For example, I can find it on the library of congress website, download and import it manually, but a z39.50 search fails to find it through the library of congress even when I use the exact call number.
13:54 embiopterid Am I missing something? (I guess that's pretty likely actually)
14:05 jcamins embiopterid: is this a problem for *all* searches?
14:06 jcamins (all Z39.50 searches)
14:09 jcamins My guess would be that call number isn't included in the keyword index for Z39.50.
14:09 jcamins Unless no searches to LC are working, in which case my guess would be that you have a firewall.
14:48 embiopterid oh, sorry, was working.  No it is not a problem for all searches.
14:49 embiopterid But it is pretty strange, when I download the marc record manually all the information I got from the front-matter or wherever I got it is there and usually correct.
14:50 embiopterid does z39.50 require that I open ports coming into the firewall?  I'm not a z39 server or anything.
14:51 jcamins No, but lots of firewalls block the ports outgoing.
14:51 jcamins I don't know what the problem is, then.
14:53 embiopterid Well, that's not the case here.  Thanks.  I was thinking I could maybe just add more z39 servers, but still if it's in the library of congress on-line it should come up in a z39 search shouldn't it?
14:53 jcamins Probably.
14:53 embiopterid Why wouldn't it? Don't they run off the same database?
14:53 jcamins But it's possible that is not an absolute rule, or, as I said, that you're searching fields that aren't indexed in the field you're searching.
14:53 jcamins No idea.
14:53 * jcamins doesn't work for the library of congress.
14:54 embiopterid Oh, ya, of course :)
14:55 embiopterid Well, that's what I'm saying, the actual record does have that information in it.  Wouldn't that mean it's indexed?
14:55 jcamins No.
14:55 jcamins Not necessarily.
14:55 jcamins You wouldn't expect to be able to enter an author's name in the title field, after all, and keyword is more or less the same.
14:56 embiopterid Oh.  Ok, well I guess I'll just add more servers then.  Probly not a real problem since it works with most things.
14:56 jcamins You might try searching by something different for those books.
14:56 jcamins For example, title instead of LCCN/ISBN/whatever.
14:57 embiopterid Oh ya, I did that already...all kinds of stuff, title, author, isbns, call numbers, whatever I could find.
14:57 jcamins In that case, the record is probably just suppressed from Z39.50 for some reason.
14:57 embiopterid Huh.  weak.
14:59 embiopterid Hey thanks for your help.  I would have tried to figure out what was wrong with my system for hours, but I guess it's just the servers.  I don't have that many yet...I figured the library of congress and some universities would probably be overkill by itself.
