Match-points are given for matches in ISSN, Title, and Publisher. The more pieces that match, the stronger the match. An automatic match is made for one strong match; the “Unmatched (ambiguous)” status is set for two or more strong matches; and the “Unmatched” status is set if there are no strong matches. The match is limited to only titles mapped to resources associated with the Platform.
When two or more customers have designated the same manual match of a title within a platform to a Resource ID, that match will be automatically used to create a consensus match. Consensus matches are limited to titles and databases within platforms.
