If your bibliographic or local holdings records have something in common that is indexed in WorldCat, you can use a query collection to pull relevant records and interleave LBDs to return the control numbers in addition to the variable fields.

  2. Create a Query collection using the selection criteria: li:[OCLC symbol] AND b8:[shelving location]
  3. Inside the new query collection make sure that the MARC Records > Customize Records > Local Bibliographic Data > Use institution setting: interleaved with my bibliographic records option is turned on
  4. When the Query collection file arrives, use MARCEdit to extract LBD records from the file
