A Practical Approach to Bibliographic De-duplication

De-Duplication Project

[ This is a duplicate of what I posted on sclends.net/projects/ ]

Early in the days of SC LENDS we faced the challenge of strict bibliographic de-duplication methods leaving our catalog messy for both staff and public. The issue wasn’t aesthetic but affected the services and workflow we offer. Unwilling to accept the common wisdom that we had to live with it we developed our own solution. The documents below give our history with the project and the code developed for it.

This is the presentation done at the Evergreen International Conference on the project and is the story of the project:

This PDF describes the technical aspects of the project:

This is the actual SQL code developed by Equinox for us:
