Cataloging: Transfer PO to Biliographic Record

Purpose: How to change which bibliographic record a PO record is attached to. Especially useful when an MLR is superseeded by another bib record in URSUS.

Identify both bibliographic records, the one currently attached to the PO record and the bibliographic record that the PO should be attached to.

In Acquisitions open the PO record.

Click on Change Bib Reference. Click on Confirm.

Search for the target bibliographic record using whichever criteria desired. The best would be the MMS number.

Click on the radio button next to the target bib record, then click Select. This relinks the PO record.

Re-search in Alma and double check to make sure there are no attached records to the MLR bib to be deleted.

Delete the MLR.
