Overview
This add-on allows you to automate searching for the 'best' MARC record using OCLC'S API.  The starting point is a spreadsheet that contains a list of ISBNs or LCCNs.  You can configure the match criteria (e.g. records we hold, 042=pcc, 040=dlc) and the MARC fields you would like written to the spreadsheet when a match is found.  If a match is not found using your criteria it will use the record with the most holdings.

You will need your OCLC API key.  After you have installed the add-on and entered the OCLC API key you can generate a sample configuration tab and a tab that contains a test searches.  Select the tabs in the two drop-down boxes and click the 'Start Search' button to launch the search.

If you would like a MARC file containing the records matched, enter your email address.  When the script finishes running it will email you the file.  (This is optional)
