A&M Consortium: FOLIO Cataloging Guidance: 1. Creating Instance Records

Advice on cataloging with the shared A&M Consortium FOLIO Client

Creating Instance Records

When creating instance records from MARC records, catalogers will need a source for those records.  This LibGuide will use OCLC Connexion as the source for these MARC records.  This is described on the next page "OCLC Connexion Configuration."  If you would like to use a different source for records, please read "Single Record Import" or "Data import".  These articles have basic information on importing MARC records.

There are 5 main options for creating an instance record in FOLIO.  Go to the next pages to learn more.


For a quick overview, see Fenway Library Organization's video "FOLIO Instance Records."
