I'd like to jump in this conversation, too, because I haven't been able
to get the match rule to work and got only one response last time I
queried the list.
I'm trying to match on the OCLC control number, which seems to be in
both 001 and 035. I tried matching on 001, as Galen advised below, and
using "control-number" as the index, and I've also tried using "ocm" as
Here's what I have now:
Description: OCLC control number
Search index: control-number
Normalization rule ??
I added a match check with the same information (field 001, subfield a).
Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong?

Yes, if you know that the source control numbers are unique, the 001
would be a good match point.

Use the Control-number index, which in the MARC21 indexing definitions
indexes the 001 field.
