00:16:01    Cara Beth:    When I see an OCLC bib record for a print book that includes an ISBN for an e-book, I will leave them in place … and vice-versa for e-book bibs with print ISBN
00:21:33    Lynn (Bellingham Technical College):    Why would any library want to know about duplicate titles unless they want to combine bibs? Or, maybe to decide to not purchase print titles that are owned in electronic format? Are there any other reasons?
00:22:38    Cara Beth:    Similar question: What do you do with the duplicates that you find?
00:23:43    Lynn (Bellingham Technical College):    Or see how many dupe print titles have already been purchased, is what I meant to say.
00:26:21    Traci Taylor - BTC:    To see what titles in our collection are available electronically.
00:44:39    Wade Guidry:    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/Product_Documentation/020Primo_VE/Primo_VE_(English)/090Dedup_and_FRBR_for_Primo_VE/010Understanding_the_Dedup_and_FRBR_Processes_(Primo_VE)
00:45:28    Traci Taylor - BTC:    Thank you everyone. I need to go cover online reference.
00:47:16    Cara Beth:    Edition or publication dates?
00:52:09    Lynn (Bellingham Technical College):    Yes, I attended the FRBR Dedupe webinar and determined the work involved would not give us much bang for our buck.
00:53:10    Lynn (Bellingham Technical College):    Thanks all and bye!
00:53:27    Melinda Martin:    Thanks all!
00:53:41    Deb Derylak:    Thanks, Wade!
00:53:45    Cara Beth:    Thanks y'all
