Metadata export needs include exporting to discovery services, exporting to external bibliographic utilities, and export/transform/reload.
The Data export app will export Bibliographic, Holdings, and Item data from SRS (source record storage) and Inventory Instance, Holdings, and Item records. Currently supported format of the export is MARC21.
When the records are exported from FOLIO's inventory and there is underlying source data (e.g., a MARC record), that data will be exported. If there is no underlying source data, a simplified MARC record will be generated on the fly.
The data export can be triggered by providing the list of record identifiers (Instances UUIDs) in .csv format. The list can be created by saving the UUIDs of the records that fulfill inventory search criteria.
On the data export landing page, the export is started by choosing or drag and drop of the record identifiers.
This generates a .mrc file that can be saved or opened directly from FOLIO.
