Viewing records

The Compare Record screen displays the selected records in Full View.  To look at the records in MARC View, you will need to click on the MARC View link which is situated towards the top of the screen. The MARC View is another way of looking at a record and displays the record with MARC (Machine-Readable Cataloguing Record) field tags.

You can immediately identity differences between the records, as differences are highlighted in blue.  Fields that contain the same information across the records will have a white background.  This assists users in identifying duplicate records.

To remove records from Compare, select the View Records link in the table header and its Full View will be displayed.  Choose the Unselect button.

As long as you are comparing at least 2 records the option to return to the Compare screen will be available using the Compare Records link in the Results navigation bar and the Compare records button within the Full View and Search results screens.
