Issue with "Koninklijke Bibliotheek van België" sources

When searching under the sources "Koninklijke Bibliotheek van België (ouder)" and "Koninklijke Bibliotheek van België (recent)", I always get the following results:

An example search was "9090043365".

Something definitely looks wrong with the definitions for those two sources.
If you choose
Koninklijke Bibliotheek
instead, your search for 9090043365 will return

Categorical type theory
by Bartholomeus Paulus Franciscus Jacobs (S.l.: s.n., 1991)

However all three sources are described as:0/ (which is not really helpful), but Koninklijke Bibliotheek has a bit more about record encoding (utf-8) and record syntax (USMARC). I think these are not z39.50 sources but hand coded by LT?

Apparently the bug has been seen before and fixed.

I think Koninklijke Bibliotheek is a SRU source

>3 lesmel: yes, and I don't know how to talk SRU'ish :-)

Is there anything we can do? Or is it up to LT admins to fix the "Koninklijke Bibliotheek van België (ouder)" and "Koninklijke Bibliotheek van België (recent)" sources? I can really see any details on those two.

>4 bnielsen: We can't fix any of the :0/ sources. That's all ccatalfo. :)

>5 lesmel: I suspected that :-)

Thanks for the report. I've alerted Chris C., since >5 lesmel: mentions this is an issue that requires staff intervention.

Thanks for reporting this - I'll be taking a look.
