Export records from Polaris

If you are unsure about these instructions, check the Polaris documentation for assistance.

Circulation Notes

  • Exporting records will create a copy of your database and will not interrupt your circulation.
  • Changes to the records will be seen once you import the records back into your library automation system.

Export Instructions

  1. Create a bibliographic or item report of the records to be exported in SimplyReports.
  2. Use the ExportExpress options to create a MARC file of the results, please note to include holdings information.

Once you have exported your records, do not add, change, or delete any records from your database until after your records have been updated and you have brought the updated records back into your database.

After you have finished making modifications to your records, make sure you follow the Update Existing instructions to get your records back into your automation system (not the Import New instructions).
