Allow multiple holdings on the same import job
Multiple copies for the same title under different library locations processed on the same import job, fail to update bib correctly.
When multiple bib records within the same import job for the same title are imported from the system, only the first record from the file is merged with the bib record, and all subsequent records (for other libraries or locations) are matched and skipped.

We need this to make the automated import of our print book records as easy to manage as our e-book records are. At the moment there is too much hunting for records on the server that haven't imported.

Definitely agree with this.
We also have raised this more than once and it does need to be resolved. We often need to purchase at the same time more than one copy of a title, for different loan types, and in different locations. The ordering process, including imports should be able to manage this without having to place more than one order and then also spend a lot of time unpicking things when books arrive that have failed for some reason during the import process.

Yes. This is a problem we have raised to no satisfactory conclusion.
