Searching for Holdings Records by Record Number

A few times I’ve had co-workers ask me a question about a record and only send me the holdings record number. At first I thought you could only search for records by their bib (aka system) number, but I have since found a way to find holding records based solely on their 001 MARC field.

  1. In Aleph Cataloging, switch to your holdings library (ALEPH -> Connect to… -> xxx60)
  2. In the record bar, type the Holding System Number you are looking for and hit enter. Note: It does not matter which tab you are on.Record Number is the very first input field in the upper left hand side of the screen.
  3. The record will appear in the Records Tab!

A shout out to FLVC where I originally found the answer.
