Weekly Update: December 7, 2010

New Tutorial

A change has been made to the MARC record batch loader.  To help explain the new options for record source when batch importing electronic records, a tutorial called “Evergreen Indiana – Importing Electronic Records” has been created.  This tutorial covers the options that should be used when importing records for electronic resources.   Since these materials are accessed via the internet, they may have no item holdings.  Using the correct record source option allows the records to appear in the OPAC, even with no physical holdings attached.

This tutorial can be found under Evergreen Indiana Training Documents at http://www.in.gov/library/3380.htm
