Subject: Alternate Text for Journal Lists
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
The use of the Journal Lists for Alternate form of output style is useful when
wishing to use an abbreviated form of Journal names. ProCite is supplied with a
list which converts the full journal name to its abbreviated form.
Recently I had a need to do the reverse. It may be of interest to readers of
this list to know how I did this. I exported the ProCite list into a
spreadsheet so that I got two columns, the first column with full and 2nd with
abbreviation. I then interchanged columns and re-imported them into a new
ProCite list. In this way I could use Alternate text to go from abbreviated to
full journal name.
Should one need to add a new journal it is necessary to add it to both lists.
No doubt this same endpoint could be easily accomplished in the ProCite software
without the user having to generate this additional list and the hassle of
updating two lists.
Use of these two lists has an additional advantage, namely that when downloading
from different databases one does not have to worry about whether or not they
provide the abbreviated or the full name of the journal since all that is
necessary is to output using a style with the appropriate Alternate List. Thus
if you need an output style with abbreviated journal names those records with
full name will be abbreviated and those already with the abbreviated form will
be printed as they are since there is no such entry in the first column of the

Subject: ProCite and Innopac
Can anyone who uses the Innopac tell me how they set up the default
ProCite fields in the Opac Options Menu so that the fields that export
are in the proper places and in some coherent order. If you could fax
me an example (or send one by e-mail). I am getting records to export,
but the resulting database is askew with wrong information structure.
Do I have to set up a configuration file in BiblioLinks II? Since these
files are exported in comma-delimited format, would a configuration file
Since the Innopac exports in the "A" book, long workform does all of the
editing have to be done after the records are in the target database?
Or can the default workform be changed?
