Example record:

  1. Post-Archivists' Toolkit, pre-analysis - this is the MARC version of the MARCXML record as it was exported out of the AT, before any modifications were made.
  2. Post-MarcEdit cleanup - this is the version of the record after the MarcEdit task list was applied to the record.
  3. Post-Python script - this is the final version of the record after running it through the Python script in preparation for loading into the local ILS catalog.
