MarcEdit: Updated Merge function

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

For Christmas, I posted an updated version of MarcEdit.  It included a number of new features, the biggest being an update to the Merge Records tool.  This is the first part of a two part update process.  I’m hoping the second part of the update will be completed by New Years. 

Anyway, the matching tool has been updated so that if a set of records are missing control numbers for matching, you can utilizing a multiple matching approach.  The program will utilize the following items for matching when MARC21 is selected from the dropdown box:

  • LDR position 6
  • LDR position 7
  • 008 date 1 and date 2
  • 008 lang
  • 008 form
  • 245 a-n
  • 300
  • 250a
  • 260b
  • 776w

The new updated screen shows up below.
