How to: Import a MARC Authority record for an Agent

Back To Top

Quick Steps

  • First, find the Agent record that you wish to import
    • Click <F3> to open the RIMMF Search & Retrieve Tool
    • Find and select the record you wish to import
    • Click <Import>
      • If a record:
        • is already present in your Entity Index then RIMMF opens that record
        • is not already present in your Entity Index, then RIMMF maps as much as possible from the MARC record into an appropriate RIMMF record for the Agent (Person, Family, or Corporate body)
          • If you <Discard Record> then it is completely discarded
          • If you <Add Record> and you invoked <F3>:
            • from a relationship entity, then that entity will be linked appropriately to the imported record
            • not from a relationship entity, then the imported record will not be linked to anything
