[Koha] Upload of Bib records to Koha

Are they complete MARC records, ready to upload? If so, here's how I do it:

Compile the records into a .mrc file. I use MARCedit (https://marcedit.reeset.net/).

Go to Tools --> Stage MARC for import. Upload the file.

Set your checking/uploading preferences.

Import into catalog.

If everything goes well, you've uploaded your records. If it doesn't, then you have to figure out why. In my case, it's usually an error somewhere in the MARC records and I have to spend the next hour or so looking at each one to figure out what's wrong.
