    How to Merge Network Zone Record with a local record

    • Product: Alma



    When trying to merge a Network Zone record with a Local record the Merge records & combine inventory option is grayed out and we are unable to merge. 


    This is the expected behavior this operation can not be done directly. 


    1. From NZ repository search click edit and go to the MD editor select File > Copy to Catalog.

    2. The result is an unlinked local copy of the record and a Network Zone copy of the record.

    3. The unlink local copy can now be merged with the Local Record

    4. Relink this record to the desired Network Zone record
