The library I joined uses BookWhere to select records, MarcReport to edit the records, and Polaris to import the records. I am not certified within my library system as an official copy cataloger, which means that when I edit and import the records, I need to add a 999 field with my library code. The person who works with me IS certified as a copy cataloger, but has rarely used the software because the official cataloger (who I replaced) performed these tasks.
I've only been at the job for three days, but I'm having some difficulties with 1) understanding the advice on MarcReport and 2) importing the records on Polaris. I'm at home so I don't have my notes in front of me, or access to my work email address at this point, but essentially, when I try to load the record, it SHOULD go from pending to complete. Instead, it just remains locked.
Are there any kind catalogers who use this software whose brains I can pick? I can send virtual cookies as a reward!
