Creating Upload Files for HathiTrust with MarcEdit
Files to be edited: MPM = multi-part monographs (requires subfields 1-4, 5&7 if available)
SPM = single-part monographs (requires subfields 1-4,7 if available)
SER = serials (requires 1-2, 6 if available)

Note: It’s always a good idea to make copies of your source files before doing any editing.
Some entries in the SPM file may have duplicate subfields 1, 2, and 7 fields. These need to be removed before processing the file.
You’re now ready to proceed with all files.
(you have to re-enter 960 each time you want to add a field, but the program keeps the added fields between exports, so you just have to add/delete rather than build from scratch)
