Step 4.3: Authority Segmentation by Type
Examine your library’s workflow, the organization of local catalog indexes, and ILS features to determine which authority records you will load into your local system and how the files of authority records should be organized when you receive them.
MARS 2.0 has a wide range of options that allow you to select the specific set of authority records desired and then arrange them in files that support your local requirements.
It may be necessary to restrict distribution files to a specific source of authority records due to local system indexing capabilities:
combined example: Your library is using LC Adult and Childrens records in your local authority file AND You would like both types of records distributed in the same file You would choose LC and Childrens in one combined file
separated example: Your library is using LC Adult and Childrens records in your local authority file BUT You would like both types of records distributed in the individual files You would choose LC and Childrens in separate files
