Adam and others,

OCLC staff will be beginning the pre-populating effort today.  Following
last weekend's software changes, we identified a problem that affected
the updating of browse indexes.  That problem needed to be fixed before
we processed any significant number of records in order to avoid having
to fix all the records later.

The problem was resolved with a software install last night and all
records with non-Latin references that were added since the weekend have
been reindexed.  So, we're now ready to begin the pre-populating.

Caroline and others,

Please feel free to share with other groups, and to download and modify
as you see fit.  Also, please note that the OCLC Connexion examples I
showed are marked up examples - you won't actually find them in OCLC
this way.  I haven't seen any actual pre-populated records in OCLC yet,
but Robert Bremer stated at ALA that they would start this process this
week.  For some examples of actual OCLC records that have had non-Latin
data added, you can see some that I did:

n 83742776
n 79003285
n 79126802
no2008102915 (but, OOPS!, I forgot to change the 008/29 to "b" and to
add the 667 note "Non-Latin script references not evaluated". I will
correct this once I can edit the record in OCLC again)

Adam
