Q. How do I unlink a bib record from the Network Zone?

Answer

Only records that have OCLC numbers should be in the NZ. (Exception: bibs we are ordering that do not yet have records in WorldCat.) Equipment and other odd things should only be in our Institution Zone.

If you find that your library has placed a record in the NZ that doesn't belong there:

  1. Select Edit in the bib record to open it in the Metadata Editor
  2. File - Copy to Catalog. This will make a copy of the NZ record in the IZ. The copy is not linked to the NZ.

This will leave a record in the NZ without any library holdings. That's ok. We are not supposed to delete bibs from the NZ. It will be cleaned up during regular NZ maintenance.
