Q: Can I run a report that will list all of the items in the catalog that might need the addition of an ISBN in order to be merged in the nightly upgrade process?

A: Yes. Items without ISBNs cannot be merged with a full MARC record and will receive the benefit of enhanced content such as cover art, table of contents, editorial reviews, reading level information, etc.

To locate a list of items in your school catalog that are candidates for a MARC record upgrade, go to Public Folders > Cataloging Related Reports > Listings > Title Level Information. Run the report "Titles w/o ISBNs by Location". Be sure to select your school location and All titles.
