I was thinking that using the fast item add feature in Evergreen's 
z39.50 workflow might be what makes it faster than batch loading the 
bibs and adding holdings separately. Seems like a similar question was 
asked a couple months ago with very similar suggestions, though.

I wonder if the previous questioner is still on the list and has 
completed their project.
