Yes.  Thank you.   I should have written that down right after we talked but
didn't.   I assume this will also take care of any holds and other related

There is the database function asset.merge_record_assets(int,int) that takes
two record ids. It merges the call numbers, copies, and asset uris of the
second record into the first.

If you're looking to merge the MARC from two records together, there are
several database functions in the vandelay schema for that, but they are
likely best used from the record import interface in the staff client.

Hope that helps!
