Z39.50 Issues

This morning I discovered that Z39.50 searches of the NHU-PAC were behaving erratically. Some ISBN and title searches work as expected, but some return error messages, even when a matching record is present in the database.

This will be an issue for anyone who uses a Z39.50 connection to search NHU-PAC. It is also an issue for some (though not all, and not in a predictable pattern) searches in the ILL system.

A first round of testing has been completed on this by SirsiDynix and I am waiting to hear from the person the issue has been referred to. An update will be posted as soon as more info is available.

NHU-PAC searches from the Welcome and Advanced Searching tabs are working correctly.
