From this point on, all steps are the same.Just follow the step-by-step instructions on the screen shots.
1. In Destiny, click the Catalog tab. 2. Click Import Titles. • Check the first box in these • first three areas. 4. Select Circulation Type (Regular for most books). You may select other types from the menu. Example: Reference.

7. Click the file you just saved. Then click Open.
2. The file name appears in the Import File box. 3. Then click Preview. 1. Do not uncheck this box.
This screen will appear. You see the top job is Import Preview. Click Refresh List.
You will see this screen next. It tells you how many titles are added, how many copies are added, how many titles are replaced, how many duplicates are skipped, and how many errors were made. (In this example, 42 records were read, 4 new titles were added that SISD did not have before, 43 copies were added, 2 titles were replaced because they were better than the title record that SISD already had in Destiny, and 36 duplicate titles were skipped because the record that was already in Destiny was better than the one being imported.) The most important thing here is to notice errors. Most of the time, you will see “0 Errors.” If there are errors, you will see them explained below the line.
The next step is to click the Import button. Then you are pretty much finished. You may look at your new Job Summary, print it out if you wish, or move on to your next exciting librarian task.
