I think it's a great idea, too. It would be nice to be able to check 
off titles from a list of retrieved search results so that you could 
send each to a separate MARC editor tab, too, so that you can quickly 
copy and paste a tag from one bib to a number of others (e.g., a 
subject heading that all should have in common).
