 +====== How to: Import a MARC Bibliographic record for a Manifestation ======
 +
 +===== Quick Steps =====
 +//Warning! If you want to import a Manifestation of an Expression of a Work, start with the Manifestation--it will bring its Work and Expression with it.//
 +
 +  * First, find the Manifestation record that you wish to import: 
 +    * Click <F3> to open the [[details:searchandretrieval|RIMMF Search & Retrieve Tool]] 
 +    * Find and select the record you wish to import
 +    * Click <Import>
 +    * //At this time//:
 +      * If a record is already present in your [[menu:entityindex|Entity Index]] then RIMMF does not recognize this and does the same as the below (when no record is already present)
 +      * If a matching Manifestation record is not already present in your Entity Index, then RIMMF:
 +        * maps as much as possible from the MARC record into a RIMMF record for the Manifestation 
 +        * finds the related Work record, and maps as much as possible from the MARC record, for it, into a RIMMF record for the related Work
 +        * finds the related Expression record, and maps as much as possible from the MARC record, for it, into a RIMMF record for the related Expression
 +        * looks for headings in the MARC record for related Agent(s):
 +          * if RIMMF does not find any Agent headings in the MARC record, then RIMMF displays the headings for the temporary Manifestation, Work, and Expression records in an R-Tree, with the checkbox checked (ready for import)
 +            * Click <Import | Selected records> to import the Manifestation, Work, and Expression records
 +            * Click <Import | Discard Selected records> to discard the Manifestation, Work, and Expression records
 +          * if RIMMF finds a heading for an Agent in your EI, it checks to see whether a record for the Agent is already in your Entity Index
 +            * if the Agent record is in your EI, RIMMF displays an R-Tree showing the heading for the temporary Manifestation, Work, and Expression records (with the checkboxes checked--ready for import) and the heading for the Agent record from the EI (with the checkbox unchecked--not ready for import) 
 +              * Click <Import | Selected records> to import the Manifestation, Work, and Expression records only
 +              * Click <Import | Discard Selected records> to discard the Manifestation, Work, and Expression records only
 +            * if the Agent record is NOT in your EI:
 +              * RIMMF looks for a MARC Authority record for the Agent, and:
 +                * if it finds it, maps as much as possible from the MARC record into a RIMMF record for the Agent
 +                * if it doesn't find a MARC Authority record for the Agent, then it creates a temporary Agent record
 +              * displays an R-Tree showing the heading for the temporary Manifestation, Work, and Expression records and the heading for the temporary Agent record (with all checkboxes checked--ready for import) 
 +              * Click <Import | Selected records> to import the Manifestation, Work, Expression, and Agent records 
 +              * Click <Import | Discard Selected records> to discard the Manifestation, Work, Expression, and Agent records
 +        
 +          * If you <Discard Selected Records>:
 +            * then they are completely discarded
 +          * If you <Import | Selected Records> and you invoked <F3>:
 +            * from a relationship entity, then that entity will be linked appropriately to the imported Expression record
 +            * not from a relationship entity, then the imported Expression record will not be linked to anything
