|The DBS met March 20, 2000 in the training lab at RPLS
for a demo of records from Marc of Quality.

Total number of fixes : 165019

There were records pulled that could not be sent to OCLC because the errors are serious enough that the records should be fixed for the sake of the library's own database.
Total number of records pulled but not printed : 3784
Periodical records 3763 handled by the Union List of Serials
OCLC charges for every record sent, so you do not want to send records that are duplicates.

Records with duplicate 010 LCCN 21817
