How do I apply NZ import profiles policies/standards to IZ import profiles?


​First, the SUNY NZ rules need to be copied in the IZ:

  1. Create a copy of the Rule in the Metadata editor. NZ rules all start with "SUNY"
    • SUNY OCLC Import Normalization Rule (normalization rule)
    • SUNY Remove E-Resources and 066 Filter and 040 $b not ENG (indication rule)
  2. Go to Resources>Cataloging>Open Metadata Editor
  3. Go to File>Options
    1. Make sure New Rule placement is set to Local
  4. Click Rules on the left-side of the metadata editor
    1. Select the Rule type you want to copy
  5. Click on the Shared Folder
  6. Click Duplicate on the SUNY NZ Rule you want to copy
  7. Name the IZ Rule using the three-letter code to designate your institution, such as institution three letter code and name, e.g.: ONE Copy Of SUNY 066
  8. Click Save
  9. Edit the rule to meet your IZ needs, if necessary. If not, move to step 10
    • E.g., Remove the MARC 856 rule from the Copy Of SUNY Normalization Rule for an IZ copy because for ebooks you want the 856 to come over
  10. Click Save (Ctrl+S)
  11. File>Exit (Ctrl+Q)
  12. If the rule is a normalization rule, you need to create a process. If it is not a normalization rule, move to step 13.
  13. Use the IZ rule in the IZ import profile


Then, create an import profile for bib records that will go into the IZ
