Thanks, Jane!  I’ll see if I can create a bug report sometime this week.

John Yorio at Equinox helped me track this down in our system.  John found out that the issue was that Evergreen uses the Library of Congress' MARC->MODS 3.3 mapping, which only includes 260$b publishers.  See https://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/v3/mods-mapping-3-3.html#publication

I think a bug report would be a good idea.

Someone here asked me for a report that includes the Publisher information.  In the report I created, I used the Simple Record Extracts to pull the “Publisher (normalized)” field into the report.  Unfortunately, in the output, the Publisher column was mostly empty.  On investigation, it appears that records with the publisher in the 264 are not included in the output.  Only records where the publisher is in the 260 have the publisher information show up in the output.

We are on Evergreen 3.1.6.  I’ve searched Launchpad, but I don’t find anything about this issue.  Has it been corrected in a later release?  Or do we need to create a bug report?

Or should I use a different method to get the publisher information into the report?
