 +====== How to: Import a MARC Authority record for a Work ======
 +
 +===== Quick Steps =====
 +
 +  * First, find the Work 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 below
 +        * 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 Work
 +          * 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 heading for the temporary Work record in an R-Tree, with the checkbox checked (ready for import)
 +              * Click <Import | Selected records> to import the Work record
 +              * Click <Import | Discard Selected records> to discard the Work record
 +            * 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 Work record (with the checkbox 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 Work record only
 +                * Click <Import | Discard Selected records> to discard the Work record 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 RIMMF doesn't find a MARC Authority record for the Agent, then it creates a temporary Agent record and
 +displays an R-Tree showing the heading for the temporary Work record and the heading for the temporary Agent record (with both checkboxes checked--ready for import) 
 +                * Click <Import | Selected records> to import both the Work and Agent record 
 +              *  Click <Import | Discard Selected records> to discard both the Work and Agent record 
 +        
 +          * 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 record
 +            * not from a relationship entity, then the imported record will not be linked to anything
