MARC Stream Importer

The MARC Stream Importer can import authority records or bibliographic records. A single running instance of the script can import either type of record, based on the record leader.

The importer is even more flexible than the staff client import, including the following options:

One advantage to using this tool instead of the staff client Import interface is that the MARC Stream Importer can load a group of files at once.
