TitleMatch: Prevent Duplicates

Print Topic

TitleMatch helps you manage your collection in real time. As you add to your list, titles that are already in your collection (or those that are on another list) are marked with a color-coded TitleMatch icon so that you won’t accidentally order duplicates. You can view matches in a collection for a single location or multiple locations. Additionally, you can view matches on your Mackin lists (submitted or unsubmitted) or on previous Mackin orders. NOTE: Due to possible variations in MARC records, publisher data and other factors, your TitleMatch results may not be 100% accurate.
