    Duplicate Record Detection

    A single Primo site may have IRD records from multiple institutions that have overlap. MetaLib IRD records require a separate dedup algorithm, type 4 based on the CKB ID OR 035 or 245.
    There is no need for candidate selection in the case of this algorithm but to keep with the general process both candidate and matching fields are created.
