Chapter 18. Introduction

The Acquisitions Load MARC Order Record interface enables you to add MARC records to selection lists and purchase orders and upload the records into the catalog. You can both create and activate purchase orders in one step from this interface. You can also load bibs and items into the catalog.

Leveraging the match sets available in the cataloging MARC batch Import interface, you can also utilize record matching mechanisms to prevent the creation of duplicate records.

For detailed instructions on record matching and importing, see the cataloging manual.
