The PublisherMerge submission merges 2 or more publishers into a single publisher.
The submission contains two required tags:
- KeepId - Specifies which publisher record to retain.
- DropId - Indicates the publisher record to drop. There may be more than one DropId tag.
The PublisherMerge submission also supports one optional tag. Optional tags should be used whenever a particular field differs between the merged titles. Each used tag refers to a publisher record number. When the submission is integrated, the value associated with the named record will be retained. The following optional tags are supported for Publisher Merges:
- Note - Record number of the desired note.
