Find, View and Import the Manifestation Record

  • <F3>
  • Change the Search Source to '[BIB]Title'
  • Search: Smoky house
  • <View MARC>
  • <Import>
Notice that RIMMF is going to import the Manifestation,
  create records for the
  Expression, and Work,
  import a NAF record for a Person: Floethe, as an Illustrator,
  and link to the Author: Goudge.
  • 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
  • Split the 'Statement of Responsibility Relating to Title Proper' into two:
    • Click on the Text box for the element
    • <F2>
    • select and cut <Crtl+X> the illustrator data from the first element
    • paste <Crtl+V> that data into the second element
    • don't forget to tidy up the punctuation
RIMMF would have done this split for you, if the separating punctuation
  had been the semicolon ( ; ) that it should have been.
  • Always remember to especially check the Publication and Extent data, to be sure it came over ok
  • Save the record

Check the Expression

  • Go to the Expression (click the [E] button)
Look at the MARC record, to see whether there is anything 
  you could add or edit in the Expression data.
There is nothing more to be done.

Back To Top

Check the Work

  • Go to the Work
I don't see anything in the MARC record, 
  that you could add in the Work data.

Back To Top

View the R-Tree

  • Click <R-Tree>, from the Work record
  • Expand the Expression
Notice the Illustrator that was added in the import; 
  we should check it
  • Open the Illustrator record
  • Open the Source record for it:
    • Options | Show source <Ctrl+Alt+S>
Let's just say, for now, that this import is fine as is.
  • Close the MARC record
  • Close the Person record
  • Back at the R-Tree, switch the R-Tree to the Goudge record:
    • Click on the Goudge heading
    • <Ctrl+R>
Notice that all of the relationship labels are correctly given
  as 'Author of'

End this Tutorial
