    Question

    What do I need to import MARC format records from a vendor file into the Voyager catalog?

    Answer

    1. Obtain your import file from the vendor.  Determine your file's Character Set (usually available from the vendor)
    2. Create a Duplicate Detection Profile in SYSADMIN > Cataloging > Bibliographic Duplicate Detection Profiles (See: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/@api/deki/files/54462/System_Admin.pdf?revision=1)
    3. Create a Bulk Import Rule in SYSADMIN > Cataloging > Bulk Import Rules (See: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/@api/deki/files/54462/System_Admin.pdf?revision=1)
    4. Import your records by running the Pbulkimport command on the server or by using WebAdmin Cataloging Utilities (See: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/...pdf?revision=1)
