You can copy or move local file records in Connexion client.

 Note:

  • Only NACO-affiliated libraries can copy locked authority records.
  • Local constant data records cannot be copied within the same file, since each record must have a unique name. To copy a record within the same file, use Edit > Derive > New Constant Data to create a copy with a different name.
  • Local bibliographic constant data records selected in a list can be copied or moved to another local file or to the online constant data file, but you cannot move multiple records selected in an online constant data list to a local file.
