Why do it along these lines? Catalogers at libraries which have Sirsi as their ILS may want to do their real listing and altering of bibliographic MARC records on Connextion Client, and afterward "smartport" the records into Sirsi. The reasons may incorporate keeping a "legacy" OCLC code (my reason), simpler capacity to work with diacritics, approval of powers, consistent information, and just comfort of having Sirsi control number which is the same as OCLC record number. This presentation will give nitty gritty directions how to set up both Connection and Sirsi, so that classified MARC records spared in the previous can be effortlessly traded to the last mentioned (i.e. imported into Workflows). Taking after this presentation, the floor will be open for talk of different techniques for bringing in records from OCLC, different merchants, and so on

Slide 21

Click on the catch and you will see a screen like this. Library – Allows you to determine the library for which this record is being stacked. Select a library from those accessible in the posting. Different qualities are clarified in taking after slides.

Any Unicorn title chose can be supplanted by an approaching record. A window opens giving creator, title, and call number data for the record to be supplanted. You can supplant the current record or drop the exchange. At the point when utilizing SmartPort to supplant a present record in a non–unique call number index that had no less than one existing bibliographic record with a similar call numbers, Unicorn checks the thing ID and in addition the call number, so the right bibliographic record is redesigned. On the off chance that a bibliographic record has not been gotten to amid the present session, the accompanying framework message shows. No record is accessible to supplant. Alert When supplanting a current record utilizing SmartPort, old 006 passages are supplanted with new sections. In the event that the current inventory record has 006 fields and the caught record does not, the current 006 field codes in the index record are erased and should be re–entered. Note If the call number of the approaching record coordinates a call number in the inventory, just the bibliographic information is overwritten.

Case Matching record found on LCCN (010) — 73012456 Whether the record is coordinated or not, the approaching record is stacked into a SmartPort catch record. The record might be altered, or the exchange might be stopped by shutting the SmartPort window.

Slide 23

Title Control Number Source – Allows you to determine the sections in the MARC record that ought to be checked for a match in the inventory. Utilize the Title Control Key Rules contraption to choose Title Control Number Source values. Unicorn checks the list for a title control key match on the primary Title Control Number Source esteem. In the event that no match is found, the second Title Control Number Source is checked, and this example proceeds until all Title Control Number Sources have been checked. Title Control Number Source figures out if the title control number of the current record is supplanted or held.

The class plan of this call number would be LC. Since the third esteem is clear, utilize all subfields in the 050 for the call number. In the event that there are numerous 050 passages (far-fetched), utilize the first. In the event that the record does not contain 050 passages, search for a 090 section. The class plan to utilize would be LC. Utilize all subfields in the 090, and utilize the primary event of the section.
