 +====== Learn about: Using RIMMF. Tutorial #13, Import a Bib record from a library catalog (LC) ======
 +
 +In this tutorial, we are going to learn about importing a Bib record from the LC Catalog directly, i.e., not using <F3>. 
 +
 +===== Open RIMMF =====
 +
 +  * Open RIMMF
 +  * Make sure that you are using the 'Goudge' data folder that you created in [[detailstutorial1|Tutorial #1]]
 +  * If necessary, change to that data folder (see: [[howto:changedatafolder|Change to a different folder of RIMMF records]])
 +
 +==== Alternate: Use a pre-built folder ====
 +
 +If you want to jump to this tutorial without doing the previous tutorials, follow the [[menu:downloadweb | "Download Web Folder" instructions]] and download the following folder from our website:
 +  * http://rimmf.com/data/zips/AfterTutorial_12.zip
 +
 +  If you intend to use this file to proceed through the remaining tutorials, 
 +    remember that it is located in your '\RIMMF3\imports\zip' folder.
 +
 +
 +===== Find and Export a Bib Record from the LC Catalog (not using <F3>) =====
 +  * Stay at the Main Menu
 +
 +
 +  If you cannot find a hit in the LC database for something, using <F3>
 +    you can go to the LC public catalog directly and download a MARC record 
 +    and import that record to RIMMF.
 +  
 +  You can also follow these steps to get records from any catalog
 +    that allows export of MARC records from the public catalog
 +    or from which you have cataloging access, and so can export
 +    a MARC record (e.g., from OCLC, if you are a member)
 +
 +  * In your browser Go to: http://catalog.loc.gov/
 +  * Search: **"I saw three ships" Goudge**
 +
 +  * Open the record for: "I saw three ships : a magical Christmas tale / by Elizabeth Goudge ; illustrated by Margot Tomes."
 +  * Click the <Save Record> option (far left of the screen)
 +  * Save format: MARC (Unicode/UTF-8)
 +    * Click <Save>
 +  * Save the record to somewhere where you can find it easily (e.g., your Desktop)
 +
 +  Unless you rename it, a record that you export from the LC catalog
 +    will be called 'records.mrc'.
 +  
 +===== Import the Bib Record =====
 +
 +  * Find the record
 +  * Drag and drop the record onto the RIMMF Main form
 +
 +  Notice that this process works exactly like an <F3> import does,
 +    and we are going to import 2 records: 
 +    Contributor, and Manifestation;
 +    and create 2 records:
 +    Work, Expression;
 +    and link to Author (which we already have)
 +
 +  * Click the down arrow by the <Import> button
 +    * Select <Selected records>
 +    * Click <OK> for '4 records imported'
 +
 +===== Check the Manifestation =====
 +
 +  * Double-click on the Manifestation heading in the R-Tree
 +
 +  * View the source record:
 +    * <Ctrl+Alt+S>
 +
 +  Notice that the Statement of Responsibility is nicely
 +    split into two statements (because of the semicolon ( ; )
 +
 +  Everything else in the record looks fine.
 +
 +===== Check the Expression =====
 +
 +  * Go to the Expression ([E] button)
 +
 +  Look at the MARC record, to see whether there is anything 
 +    you could add or edit in the Expression data.
 +    
 +  Notice "music" in the  300$b 
 +
 +  * Add another 'Content Type' element to the Expression:
 +    * Put your cursor on 'Content Type'
 +    * <F2>
 +    * In the new Text box, type: "**notated**"
 +    * Choose 'notated music' from the list
 +
 +  If you feel that the illustrations could also warrant another
 +    'Content Type', then add 'still image' as a third 'Content Type'
 +
 +  * Add another 'Content Type' element to the Expression:
 +    * Put your cursor on 'Content Type'
 +    * <F2>
 +    * In the new Text box, type: "**still**"
 +    * Choose 'still image' from the list
 +
 +  * Save the record
 +
 +===== Check the Work =====
 +
 +  * Go to the Work
 +
 +  Notice that RIMMF brought over the 521
 +    as 'Intended Audience';
 +    and brought over one subject heading 
 +    and two classification numbers 
 +    as subject relationships.
 +
 +
 +===== View the R-Tree =====
 +
 +  * Click <R-Tree>, from the Work record
 +  * Expand the Expression
 +
 +  * Switch to the R-Tree for the Goudge record
 +    * <right-click> on the Goudge heading
 +    * choose <R-Tree this>
 +
 +  Notice that all of the relationship labels are correctly given
 +    as 'Author of'
 + 
 +===== End this Tutorial =====
 +
 +  * Close everything
 +
 +If you are finished playing with RIMMF for now, close RIMMF. If you want to proceed, go to [[detailstutorial14|Tutorial #14]]
