Subject: [Koha] BIb record matching on ISBN 10, 13
As we add new libraries to our consortium catalog, I find that we are
encountering bib record duplication. Most of this duplication appears to be
due to one library using a record that has a 10 digit ISBN, while another

experience that Koha only matches on the first instance of an ISBN in the
020 field? Does the matching engine follow through and check the second 020
field for a matching ISBN?
Second, would the development of a built in ISBN 10 to ISBN 13 converter in
Koha matching reduce the number of record duplicates? My inclination is that
