Export authority records

Learn how to create and manage authority record export lists as well as how to export authority records.

You can export an authority record:

  • Using a TCP/IP connection (export immediately when viewing an authority record or export records in a list)
  • Downloading the file through your browser (export records in a list)

Your export lists are only viewable by you and not by others in your institution. Any export lists that have not been modified in the last 30 days are automatically deleted to clean up expired lists.
