Bug Description

In 2.12.2 and on Webby, take the following steps:

1) Mark a bib record for overlay. Note which bib source is currently marked for this record.
2) Go to Cataloging > Import record from Z39.50
3) Find an awesome new record and click the _Overlay_ button.
4) Click _Edit Z39.50 Record_
5) Change the bib source
6) Click _Modify_
7) Click _Use Edits_
8) Click _Overlay_

When you check the bib record in the catalog, it will still list the original source you noted in step 1, rather than the source that you chose in the z39.50 interface.

I see this in the 3.1.4 web client

It doesn't look like the new record source is being saved at all.

1. Mark a bib record for overlay
2. Go to Cataloguing -> Import Record from Z39.50
3. Find a new record and click Overlay
4. Click on Edit Z39.50 Record
5. Select a record source
7. Click Save
7. Go back into Edit Z39.50 Record and you'll see that the record source field has gone back to "Select a Source". If you made any edits to the MARC record those edits have been saved.

Branch that addresses the issues of the bib source not being honored when either importing or overlaying via z3950 is here:


(From the commit:)
Two paths to test:
Path A)
    1. Import a new bib record from z3950, but via "Edit then Import"
    2. Bring up marc editor and choose save w/ bib source.
    3. Verify chosen bib source saved correctly on record page.
Path B)
    1. Mark a record as target for Overlay, go to z3950 import.
    2. Make a search, select item for Overlay.
    3. Choose Edit z3950 record to bring up marceditor, save with a bib source.
    4. Verify chosen bib source saved correctly on record page.
