Allow merging of duplicate metadata records for newspaper articles prior to January 1, 2000.
I reported a case of 12 metadata records for the same NYT newspaper article. Search: "carmichael oregon high desert"
This was the response from support:
Records with the resource type "newspaper articles" from before January 1, 2000 - CANNOT MERGE.
Unfortunately it seems that CDI is currently not designed to provide the functionality described.
The next step is to pursue this as an enhancement.
