For other libraries, your institution name will appear next to global edits, not your personal name.

Title Changes page(s)

After clicking on Collection Updated via KBART, a page will open. Click on Title Changes. You can filter the list of title changes. Not all of the filters will apply.

Clicking on a Title Name will bring you to the title's Title History. The changes from your file will populate titles' histories.

Download a detailed report

The Title Changes page has a downloadable report option. Find the Download Detailed Report button at the top of the page.

The report will be a KBART file containing all of the titles from the uploaded file as well as any titles that were already present in your collection at the time of your upload. An additional column header RESULT will appear to the far right of the file and each title will have this populated with a value describing the way the title was processed.

The meaning of the RESULT value depends on if you used ACTION values in your file, the upload Scope you chose (Update changes only or Replace holdings in collection), and if a collection is a global or local collection.
