How to: Search for Data Outside RIMMF

Quick Steps

You can search for data outside RIMMF from anywhere in RIMMF (while you are in a record, in a template, or at the main menu).

If the search 'timesout' (404 Request aborted on timeout)
  then it means the source server is busy,
  try again.


To view a MARC record before importing it:

  • Select the heading for the record you wish to view and click the <View Marc> button; or
  • Double-click on the heading for the record


If you decide to import a MARC record that you have found, into RIMMF:

  • Click <Import>
  • View the record
  • Click <Add record>


One you have imported and added the converted record to your RIMMF database, you can edit it in RIMMF, and link to and from it, as usual.
