9. Creating authority records

10. Four methods Import records created in your local system, Create authority records from blank and tagged workforms, Derive new authority records from existing authority records, Generate new authority records for headings found in bibliographic records There are a number of ways to create authority records in the client. There are a number of ways to create authority records in the client.

11. Importing records

12. Setting your MARC organizational code OFFLINE ONLY If you create authority records OFFLINE [import, deriving, work forms, and generate] you MUST define your MARC organizational code. (if online, uses the MARC org. code associated with your authorization)OFFLINE ONLY If you create authority records OFFLINE [import, deriving, work forms, and generate] you MUST define your MARC organizational code. (if online, uses the MARC org. code associated with your authorization)

13. Setting your MARC organizational code If you do not, you will receive an error message or the macro will fail altogether. If you do not, you will receive an error message or the macro will fail altogether.

14. Blank records & workforms The first way is from the Authorities menu. From the menu, select ‘Create’, then Single record, and then from there, you can select either a blank record, or a template that includes the appropriate tag and fixed field set to default values.

18. Deriving ‘new’ records

19. Derived record Fixed field does not transfer—this is different from CatME. Fixed field does not transfer—this is different from CatME.

20. Generating records Another means of creating new records is to use a macro, that is included as part of the Connexion Client software. To get to the macro, go to the Tools menu, then select Macros, Manage Another means of creating new records is to use a macro, that is included as part of the Connexion Client software. To get to the macro, go to the Tools menu, then select Macros, Manage

21. Generating records And the list of OCLC macros is automatically presented. From here, you can select ‘RUN’, and if your cursor is in a valid field, the software will create and present a new authority record using information from the bibliographic record. OCLC might distribute a new OCLC macro book. If you make changes to the macro, you will want to save a copy of the modified macro to a different macro book.

23. Customizing the toolbar As is true for all menu items, items you use most frequently can easily be added to your toolbar or assign this to a keystroke. This is done by using the toolbar editor (under tools). In addition to all the menu functions, there are 10 ‘User tools’ to which you can create and assign macros, or assign any of the macros that are included in the Connexion Client.As is true for all menu items, items you use most frequently can easily be added to your toolbar or assign this to a keystroke.

24. Adding a macro to the toolbar As mentioned earlier, when we were looking at the toolbars, there are 10 ‘User tools’, and you can assign the GenerateAuthorityMacro to one of those, and then add the tool to your menu bar.As mentioned earlier, when we were looking at the toolbars, there are 10 ‘User tools’, and you can assign the GenerateAuthorityMacro to one of those, and then add the tool to your menu bar.

27. Editing authority records

28. Master record editing Authority records with ‘n*’ prefix only Option to lock/not lock master record New functionality to ‘Lock linked’ authority record

32. To lock, or not to lock…

33. Locked

34. Replacing unlocked records If you decide *not* to lock the record, the option to replace the record will not be displayed until an edit has been made to the record.If you decide *not* to lock the record, the option to replace the record will not be displayed until an edit has been made to the record.

36. Saving authority records

38. Saving records--options

39. Local save file & locked records bib records expire in 14 days, and thousands of libraries do this work.  oclc didn't want these records locked in local file.   auth records expire in 90 days, and a much smaller number of libraries do this work, so oclc agreed that this would be ok.bib records expire in 14 days, and thousands of libraries do this work.  oclc didn't want these records locked in local file.   auth records expire in 90 days, and a much smaller number of libraries do this work, so oclc agreed that this would be ok.

40. Set status—local or online

41. My status—local save only Currently, my status is only supported in the local file. We anticipate adding this in the future to the online save file.Currently, my status is only supported in the local file. We anticipate adding this in the future to the online save file.

42. My status—local save only

43. Workflow status—local or online Save record means it will be saved when the record is closed. Save record means it will be saved when the record is closed.

44. Saving records—local or online If the record has not been saved to either the local or online save file, and you save the record from set status, you will be asked to choose which save file you to which you want to save the record.If the record has not been saved to either the local or online save file, and you save the record from set status, you will be asked to choose which save file you to which you want to save the record.

67. Duplicate detection (current) The system currently checks for normalized 1xx fields when adding or replacing an authority record. If the normalized 1xx matched another record in the Authority File, and if a match was found the add or replace was blocked. The system currently checks for normalized 1xx fields when adding or replacing an authority record. If the normalized 1xx matched another record in the Authority File, and if a match was found the add or replace was blocked.

68. Duplicate detection (soon) Following an upcoming install: The system will no longer automatically check for normalized 1xx fields when adding or replacing an authority record. However, you can continue to check for duplicates prior to adding or replacing authority records using the Validate command. If a normalized duplicate is found between the 1xx heading in the record to be added or replaced and a 1xx heading already present in another authority record, the system will continue to report the duplicate with the Validate command. If you select add or replace, even after viewing this message, the system will *not* block the record from being added/replaced. To allow acceptable normalized duplicates, based on current national cataloging practice, the system has been changed to remove this check.

69. Duplicate detection (future) Client 1.40 The system will automatically check for normalized 1xx fields when adding or replacing an authority record.
