Response to Kathy and Jon,
What we have done at Ohio State, still in an experimental mode, is to have
collection managers harvest records in CORC, then work with technical
service folks to make them more suitable for our catalog. When the records
were considered "complete" (a CORC status term), we could load them to our
The way that currently happens is to use the CORC export function,
specifying MARC format, saving the records as a single text file on a hard
drive. Then, using the INNOPAC ftp, bring them to our INNOPAC workspace
like any other file picked up via ftp. Convert and then use one of our
Jon, the records that are "marked" (the CORC term resulting in a check
mark) export as a file -- I just did 14 as a group last week, even though I
could see only 10 on a single CORC screen. This group of 14 did not have
item records, but we have decided the CORC records should -- we have an
ITYPE for Internet resources, and the location WWW for both bib and item.
This is only the second group we actually exported and loaded. One problem
is that they lack field 001 (it is dropped during the load as being
incorrect). This field is used by our statewide system, OhioLINK, to
de-dup bibs, so right now the records only display in our local system.
This morning, I noticed a problem with redundant display of entries in the
web opac, so will be looking into that. The display looks fine in VT100.
