C14: Transferring An Item Record

Description:

A special use of item modification is to effect a transfer of the item record from one bibliographic record to a different bibliographic record by modifying the Bib control number on the item workform. This is useful in correcting mislinked items.

Instructions:

  1. Use the Item Record Find Tool to search for an item record you wish to modify.

    Note:

    Please refer to sections B1: The Polaris Find Tool – Overview and B3: The Polaris Find Tool - Item Records of the manual for instructions on how to access and use the Item Record Find Tool to retrieve item records.

  2.   To search for a record you wish to modify, enter your search terms in the For field.



  3. Hit ' Enter ' on your keyboard or the Search button to execute your search.



  4. Select the item you wish to modify. This will open the Item Record workform, from which you will make your modifications. The Bib control number can be found in the upper right quadrant of the item workform.



    Clicking the Find button next to this field will bring up the Bibliographic Find Tool.  Use the find tool to search for and select the new bibliographic record to which the item should be linked.

    Note:

    Please refer to sections B1: The Polaris Find Tool – Overview and B2: The Polaris Find Tool - Bibliographic Records of the manual for instructions on how to access and use the Bibliographic Record Find Tool to retrieve bibliographic records.
