This program uses the fix table to modify the MARC record input file.
This program checks the input file against the MGU01 database and separates records into three files: exact matches, non-matches and multiple matches.
This program processes the MARC input file and creates the Aleph bibliographic, order, item records and makes the budget encumbrance, based on the specifications entered by the library in the definition table.
McGill uses this program twice for a separated CM file, using different definition tables, one for each currency, USD and GBP.
This table translates the order information between the systems and assigns sub library locations and Aleph record statuses. McGill created two of these tables, one for US orders and one for UK orders.
This table performs field translations on the input records, such as adding an OWN field or transferring the 001 to the 035 field.
(and Re-import them).
