    Brief MARC record display in Alma despite successful export from OCLC

    Product: Alma


    We have created brief records, then tried to overlay full MARC records from OCLC, then saving and releasing the record. The records were successfully exported, but the brief bibliographic record was not overlayed with the full record, despite saving and releasing in Metadata Editor. Can you tell me why we still show brief records?


    Under your integration profile for OCLC, make sure the box is unchecked for "Uncheck Do not Override/merge a record with lower brief version." If the box is checked, a brief record in Alma won't be merged by the better record from OCLC Connexion.
