    Merge Rules Logic

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Alma


    What is the general logic of merge rules in Alma? Which record is the preferred record?


    In import profiles or when importing a record from OCLC Connexion, the local record is the preferred record
    In copy cataloging (cataloging from an external search resource, e.g. WorldCat) the incoming record is the preferred record.
