Using RIMMF. Tutorial #4, Import a Bib record for a Manifestation of an Expression that is already in your EI

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about importing an LC Bibliographic record as an RDA RIMMF Manifestation record, when we already have a RIMMF Expression record for that manifestation.

Open RIMMF
  • Open RIMMF
  • Make sure that you are using the 'Goudge' data folder that you created in Tutorial #1
At the bottom of the RIMMF screen, look for "\Goudge\
  • Open the Entity Index (EI) <Ctrl+E>
The EI should contain: 
  Composite Key                                               Entity
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Goudge, Elizabeth, 1900-1984                                Person
  Goudge, Elizabeth, 1900-1984. Herb of grace                 Work
  Goudge, Elizabeth, 1900-1984. Eliots of Damerosehay saga    Work
  Goudge, Elizabeth, 1900-1984. Herb of grace. German         Expression

Import a Bib record for a Manifestation

Back To Top

Find and View the Manifestation Record for Importing

  • Open the RIMMF Search and Retrieval Tool <F3>
  • Change the Search Source to '[BIB]Title'
  • Search: Herb of grace
  • Select: Pilgerherberge, Roman. [Aus dem Englischen übersetzt von N. O. Scarpi und Harry Kahn]
Note that this title came up here because the Bib record
  contains 'Herb of grace.German' as a Uniform title
  • Click <View MARC>
This bib record is for a German Manifestation
  of the Expression Work that we imported in the previous Tutorial (#3).
  • Click <Import>
  An 'R-Tree' displays the RDA Record set for the Manifestation.
  
  Notice that this includes not just the Manifestation, 
    but also the Expression, the Work, and the Author.
    
  But notice that only the Manifestation checkbox,
    to the right of the Heading, is checked
    whereas the other checkboxes are not checked,
    because data for those entities
    is already present in the Entity Index.
  
  When we import the Manifestation record, therefore, 
    the Import process will link that record
    to the Expression record that is already present in your EI,
    and that Expression record is already linked to the Work record
    which is already linked to the Author record. 
  • Double-click on the heading for the Manifestation
This opens the record for the Manifestation.

You should always check 
  that everything that could be mapped
  from the MARC Bib record
  was mapped to the Manifestation record.

You should also always check that the Manifestation record 
  that you are about to link to, is the one that you want;
  let's say that it is.
  • Close the Manifestation record
  • Expand the heading for it in the R-Tree (if necessary)
  • Double-click on the heading for the Expression
You should also always check that the Expression record 
  that you are about to link to,
  is the one that you want.
And, if it is, then look to see whether there is anything
  in the Bib record that you could add to the Expression record.
  
For the purpose of this tutorial, 
  let's say that this is the Expression record that we want.

But there is something we could add to the Expression:
  relationship links to the translators, because 
  "Aus dem Englischen übersetzt von N. O. Scarpi 
  und Harry Kahn" turns out to mean, basically: 
  "From the English, translated by N.O. Scarpi and Harry Kahn".
  
As far as my research shows, this work was only translated
  into German once, by these two translators. 
  
So, we should add their relationships to the Expression
  to the data for the Expression record that is already 
  in our EI.
  
But first, we have to import the Manifestation record.

Back To Top

Import the Manifestation Record

  • Return to the R-Tree
  • Click the down arrow by the <Import> button
    • Select <Selected records>
    • Click <OK> for the record count (1)
  • Double-click the Manifestation heading
  • If the MARC record is no longer showing:
    • Show Source <Ctrl+Alt+S> or Options | Show Source
  • Click the [E] button in the WEMI Links bar

Back To Top

Add Data to the Expression Record

 Now let's add relationship links for the related translators
   to the Expression data
  • Insert a new element row at the end of the Expression record <F4>
  • Type 'Contributor' as the Element Label
    • <Tab>
  • Click on the Label
    • Type 'Translator'
    • <Tab>
    • Right-click on the Text box
      • Select <Search for name in NAF>
    • Search [ID]NAF: Scarpi, N. O.
Enter punctuation and spacing exactly as above.
  • Select 'Scarpi, N. O., 1888-1980
  • View MARC
Let's say that a bit more research has convinced us that
  this is our translator.
  • Click <Import>
  • Check that all obvious MARC data was mapped
  • Click <Add record>
Notice that a back-link has been added to the Person record
  to the Expression record where we began this linking process.
  • Double-click on the link in the Text for 'Translator Of'
This returns us to the Expression record.
  • Copy the Translator element
    • Click in the Text box of the 'Translator' element
    • <F2>
Notice that the label for this blank element is
  the parent label 'Contributor'
  • Click on the Label
    • Type 'Translator'
    • <Tab>
  • Enter <F3>
  • Search [ID]NAF: Kahn, Harry
With 4 options to choose from, I researched his name in the catalog
  of the Deutschen Nationalbibliothek (DNB): http://www.dnb.de/EN;
  I searched: Kahn, Harry Pilgerherberge
Following the links, I discovered that the DNB Authority record
  for the translator lists his dates as "Lebensdaten: 1883-1970";
  since DNB should know about this book in German,
  I will link to the name in the NAF with those dates.
  • Select: Kahn, Harry, 1883-1970
  • Click <View MARC>
  • Click <Import>
  • Check that all obvious MARC data was mapped
  • Click <Add record>
Notice that the 'Translator Of' back-link has been added 
  to the Person record for the Expression record again.
  • Close the Person record
  • Close the MARC record
  • Save the Expression record <Ctrl+S>

Back To Top

View the R-Tree for your set

  • Go to the Manifestation record
  • Click the button for the <R-Tree>
Notice that it shows:
  1 Manifestation
  1 Expression
  • Click the <Dig> button at the bottom right of the screen
Now you can see 3 additional headings:
  1 Work
  2 Translators
  • Click the <Dig> button again
Now you can see 2 additional headings:
  the Series related to the Work
  the Author of the Work

Back To Top

End this Tutorial

  • Close everything
    • Save any records if you are prompted to do so

If you are finished playing with RIMMF for now, close RIMMF. If you want to proceed, go to Tutorial #5
