It would be nice to be able to edit ‘staged’ records. This way you can clean up records before making them public. Along those lines it would be nice to use checkboxes to say which items to import and which to leave staged.

This suggests 2 things:

Allow editing of staged records: Will be resolved by bug 18823.
Ability to pick records to import: Changing bug title to cover this.

The ability to choose which staged records to import would be so helpful! I'm thinking of instances when a few unwanted biblio records sneak into a batch that is staged. It would be more efficient to unselect the unwanted records at that point and proceed with importing, rather than stage a new batch or delete the unwanted records after import.

Agree!! Some of our materials come with records and some don't. It would save a ton of time if we could select the few NOT to import if they are already live in the catalog. We have seen a  lot of this in Covid-times due to overlapping orders and bulk shipments being received en-masse.
