Working with Records in a Record Bucket

Record buckets are containers that can be used to group MARC records. Once records are in a bucket you can perform batch actions on the records including merging, deleting, and exporting the records. Buckets can also be shared with Co-op Support for batch editing assistance and troubleshooting.

Buckets can also be used for matching when importing records via the Batch Import function.
