Importing MARC records from IUCAT to Media Collections Online (MCO)

MARC records can be imported from IUCAT to MCO in two ways: 

  1. The Import function on the Resource Description Form for a single Avalon item can import a single IUCAT record into Avalon based on the Catalog Key in IUCAT]
  2. A Batch Ingest Package can contain a spreadsheet of Catalog Keys from IUCAT to import several IUCAT records at the same time

To import from IUCAT into MCO, use the catalog key number at the end of the IUCAT URL for a record as the Bibliographic ID in MCO (for example, 6502911 is the MCO Bibliographic ID from This is equivalent to the 035$a Sirsi catalog key in the MARC record and is what is used for IUCAT permanent URLs. Paste that number into the Bibliographic ID column in a Batch Ingest Package spreadsheet or in the Bibliographic ID field in the Resource Description Form. The Bibliographic Label for this identifier is “Catalog Key,” which you would include in the Bibliographic Label column in the spreadsheet or select from the drop-down menu in the Resource Description Form.
