System Help

Frimley update: FRM has joined the SWIMS network and their data was imported in early November 2021. Extensive tidying needs to be carried out on this data:

  • there are duplicate records on the system – some will need deleting, others merging, and any remaining need to be re-catalogued according to RDA and our local cataloguing rules. Please do not copy any FRM records and if you need to add a copy record to existing records, choose the record that has existing SWIMS copy items on it rather than just FRM records if there are duplicate records.
  • there are inter-library loan journal titles on the system – when searching V-smart, you may receive multiple FRM results for journal titles, please ignore these. These records will be deleted by April 2022 at the very latest. These records have been hidden from Iguana. These records will look like this:
