Copy cataloguing enables an existing Bibliographic record to be copied in entirety to create an identical record which can then be edited, changed and re-saved.  Holdings can then be added to the new record.  This is useful when adding non-library resources or similar items which cannot be sourced from normal sources.


  • Example: Copy the Bib record for 'Alice Miranda holds the key' in order to edit to a different title in the series

  1. Catalogue > search by ISBN or Title
  2. click on the copy icon shown



    3. Edit the copied record and add copies to this new Bibliographic record.  Note: the specific message in the green banner advising this is the copy of the original record.
