2. If we link "Tolkien, J. R. R., 1892-1973" in one MARC bib record to the authority record, does it mean, that we link "Tolkien, J. R. R., 1892-1973" in all fields of all other MARC bib records, that have exactly the same text ("Tolkien, J. R. R., 1892-1973")?

 If first answer is true yes and second is false  no then:

To make linking user uses the dropdown menu, that is available for each row in MARC file. It basically means that the $0 subfield value is not enough for the creation of the link between bib and authority, but instead we link the row in bib record to the authority record, and therefore we need to save:

...

So we link the row, because we cannot base the linking on the $0 field (question 1), and we cannot base the linking on the text comparison (question 2). But it is only if first answer is true yes and second is false3.  no.

3. If the second answer is no and there are 3 records (ex. Title1, Title2, Title3) with Lucas, Perer J and for one of the records (ex. Title1) user link the Lucas, Perer J to the authority record does it mean that:

  1. There will be 2 rows for Lucas, Perer J in browsing: one which is marked as linked and number of titles equals to 1 and another one not marked as linked and number of titles 2
  2. There will be 1 row which is marked as linked and number of titles equals to 3 (because at least one is marked)
  3. There will be 1 row which is not marked as linked and number of titles equals to 3 (because not all are marked)

4. And small clarification: Did I get you correctly, that 001 of MARC Authority can be used as an identifier for the Authority? (Is it unique in scope of Folio installation?)
