    How to move items between BIB records

    • Product: Alma

    Question

    How can I move items from one BIB record to another?

    Answer

    1. On the List of Items page (see Working with the List of Items), select the item that you want to move and click Relink to another Bib. The Relink Items to Another Bibliographic Record page appears. Note that you may also select the Change Location row action for an item on the List of Items page to submit a move request. See Creating a Request for more information.

    2. Browse to enter a resource description. The Repository Search page appears.

    3. Complete a search for the bibliographic record to which you want to link.

    4. From the search results, select the title to which you want to relink the item, and click Select. The holdings for the title that you selected appear on the Relink Items to Another Bibliographic Record page.

      You can also create a new holdings record (Add New Holdings) to which you can link the item that you want to move.

    5. Select the holdings record to which you want to relink the item, and click Select.

    6. If the item that you are moving is the last item linked to its previous holdings record, the system prompts you with the options below for handling the previous holdings record. Make a selection and click Go. You are returned to the List of Items page.

      • Don't change the holdings record

      • Delete the holdings record

      • Suppress the holdings record from externalization

      • Delete bibliographic record that have no other holdings
