Hello - I want to match some brief cataloging records for music scores to OCLC record numbers. I am inconversation with OCLC about doing this with a reclamation/datasync type process, but I'm not optimistic about that, because there's going to be a lot of mismatch in the details.
Here's a sample record:
=LDR \\\\\ncm a22\\\\\ a 4500
=935 \\$aLAiO|Adams, Leslie|Hosanna to|2927|Walton Music|1976|Vocal Score For Satb Chorus And Piano
=100 1\$aAdams, Leslie.
=245 \\$aHosanna to the Son of David.
=264 \1$aNew York : $bWalton Music Corporation , $c1976.
=300 \\$aScore, not-stapled, soft-cover; $c26.6 cm
=336 \\$anotated music$bntm$2rdacontent
=500 \\$aVocal score for SATB chorus and piano
=910 \$aLewis Collection - Anthems in Octavo
=910 \$aFile Cabinet 5, drawer 1
That 935 is my attempt to cobble a "Unique" key from the records. I'm thinking those blank 710s (editor, arranger, translator) will be removed by MarcEdit.
I think what would be best would be to search OCLC API by title + composer + mat-type=score, and check through these for a matching 028 and matching significant words in the 500 note, and produce an output of multiple rows for any matching records, to be combed through via the next set of automated process.
What software exists to do this? Your wisdom is appreciated.
