Apply constant data to a bibliographic record

You can apply the information in a bibliographic constant data record to a MARC 21 record. You can use any bibliographic constant data record that was created by any individual at your institution.

  1. From the MARC 21 editor, click Record.
  2. From the Record drop-down menu, select Apply from the Bibliographic Constant Data flyout menu.
  3. Select a constant data record from the list.
  4. Optional. If you want to apply the Leader and 008 fields when applying bibliographic constant data to a record, select one of the following:
    • Leader and 008 values
    • Only variable fields (default)
    • Leader, 008 and variable fields
  5. Click Apply. A confirmation message appears which states that the bibliographic constant data record was applied to the record.
  6. Click Save. The record is saved with new field information from the bibliographic constant data record.
