Enhanced Match Point is a record-matching algorithm used by the MOBIUS INN-Reach union catalog to identify whether resources contributed by the local MOBIUS systems are already represented in the catalog. Records already represented in the MOBIUS union catalog may become the new “master record” or may be attached to the existing master record as holdings. Enhanced Match Point uses a multi-tiered matching algorithm to pinpoint matching records and replaces the previous matching algorithm, which looked primarily at the OCLC # located in the MARC 001 field.
