Relinking Holdings Records to Another Bib Record

Holdings records can be relinked (moved) to another bib record, which will move the associated items as well.

Relinking holdings records to another bib record:

  1. Perform a All Titles repository search to find the original bib record
  2. Click Holdings
  3. Click Relink from the top of the screen or the ellipses of the holdings record
  4. The Search screen opens on the right-hand side of the split screen editor
  5. Click the Zone to be searched (Institution, Network, or Community)
  6. Type in search parameters (use the MMS ID, ISBN, OCLC #, etc.)
  7. Click Search to find the record to which you'd like to link the holdings
  8. Click Relink from the record on the right-hand side of the split screen editor
    • The Holdings record is now relinked to the new record
  9. Click Save>Save and Release Record (Ctrl+Alt+R)

NOTE: The original bib record will need to be deleted if there are no other holdings associated with the bib record
