Electronic Resources Cataloging in a Nutshell Electronic Resources Cataloging in a Nutshell Presentation Transcript

  • Guest lecture for MLIS 7440
    Valdosta State University
    07/21/2010

    Electronic Resources Cataloging in a Nutshell
  • There’s No Turning Back
  • The Georgia Perimeter College Environment
    Libraries @ 4 campuses, 5th on the way
    Total enrollment: 24,549 (3rd largest in the USG)
    Total FY11 collections budget: $476,466.00
    FY11 e-resources: $96,450.00
    FY10 e-resources: $112,568.35
    FY09 e-resources: $82,696.80
  • Just What Are We Dealing With Here?
    AACR2 (Soon to be RDA) approach
    MARC-based records
    “Material (data and/or program(s)) encoded for manipulation by a computerized device.  This material may require the use of a peripheral directly connected to a computerized device (e.g., CD-ROM drive) or a connection to a computer network (e.g., the Internet). ” – AACR2 Appendix D
  • Just What Are We Dealing With Here?
    Databases, websites, e-books & serials, software, podcasts, streaming media, playaways, etc. etc.
    NOT music CDs, videos on DVD, etc. (Only things that require the use of a computer. Remember AACR2 Appendix D.)
  • Where Does It All Come From?
    OCLC WorldCat
    Vendor-provided (includes e-resource vendors and cataloging vendors)
    You! (Original records)
  • Single Record or Separate Record?
    Single record = All manifestations on one record
    Separate records = One record for each manifestation
    Your choice will depend on local needs, but separate records is emerging as the national standard.
  • Other Considerations
    What/how much are you going to catalog?
    Who’s responsible for link checking and weeding?
    To classify or not to classify?
    Pros
    Aids in collection assessment
    Provides access through a call number browse
    Cons
    Added time and effort for an item that rarely requires a shelving device
    May be confusing to patrons who might look for the resource on the shelf (A prefix or suffix can alleviate this confusion)
    Standardized local genre headings?
  • Provider-Neutral Records
    Provider-Neutral E-Monograph MARC Record Guide
    http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/bibco/PN-Guide.pdf
    Program for Cooperative Cataloging released this policy in late 2009.
    Required for PCC-member WorldCat cataloging. Optional, but encouraged, for non-PCC members on WorldCat. Records not in compliance will be upgraded or merged. (Starting in January 2010.)
    Separate record approach.
  • Provider-Neutral Records
    Only information applicable to all manifestations. Intended to represent all existing and future manifestations.
    Omit information specific to any one provider (i.e., aggregator).
    Reduces the number of essentially duplicate records.
    Does not affect offline resources, like CD-ROMs.
    Doesn’t affect single record approach to print. Can still add details about online resources to the corresponding print record.
  • What You Don’t Need in P-N Records
    No notes and/or added entries regarding providers, file formats, or access restrictions.
    Do not include (with certain exceptions):
    MARC fields: 256, 500/550, 506, 516, 530, 533, 534, 538, 540, 583, 700-730, 773, & 800-830

  • Some Fixed Fields You’ll Encounter
    Leader/06 (Type - Type of Record)
    • Code for the most significant aspect of the resource. Code "m" is currently used only for computer software (including programs, games, fonts), numeric data, computer-oriented multimedia, online systems or services.
  • More Fixed Fields You’ll Encounter
    Leader/07 (BLvl - Bibliographic Level)
    This depends on the e-resource. Some examples:
    i - Integrating resource (updating website)
    m - Monograph/Item (e-book)
    s – Serial (e-journal)
    Leader/18 (Desc - Descriptive Cataloging Form)
    a - AACR2
    006 (Additional Material Characteristics)
    Include field 006 for computer file, if Leader/6 (Type) is not coded as "m“.
  • Yes, There Are Even More Fixed Fields
    007 (Physical Description Fixed Field - Electronic Resource)
    http://www.oclc.org/bibformats/en/0xx/007comp.shtm
    008/21 (SrTp - Type of Continuing Resource)
    Left blank for anything other than continuing resources. Use “w” for updating websites that do not fit one of the other codes.
    008/23 or 008/29 (Form of Item - Form)
    s - Electronic
  • AACR2 Chapter 9 (Electronic Resources)
    AACR2 9.0B1
    Chief source of information
    The resource itself (e.g. title screen(s), main menus, initial displays of information, home pages, and encoded metadata (e.g. TEI headers, HTML/XML meta tags)
    If the information in these sources varies, prefer the most complete
    AACR2 9.0B2
    Prescribed sources of information (Enclose information taken from outside the prescribed source(s) in square brackets.)
    Title and statement of responsibility (Chief source of information, information issued by the publisher, creator, etc.)
    Edition (Chief source of information, information issued by the publisher, creator, etc.)
  • AACR2 Chapter 9 (Electronic Resources)
    AACR2 9.0B2 (conti.)
    Prescribed sources of information (Enclose information taken from outside the prescribed source(s) in square brackets.)
    Type and extent of resource (Any source)
    Publication, distribution, etc. (Chief source of information, information issued by the publisher, creator, etc.)
    Physical description (Any source)
  • And On to the Variable Fields!
    1XX / 7XX (Name or Uniform Title Added Entries)
    Due to diffuse or corporate responsibility on websites, assigning a 1XX to them can be tricky.
    For websites, 100 should only be assigned for listed authors/webmasters if the site being cataloged is personal in nature.
    110 can be assigned for the official site for a corporate body or government agency.
    Personal names and corporate bodies found in the item, and not receiving a 1XX can be traced in a 7XX.
  • More Variable Fields
    245/246 (Title Statement/ Varying Form of Title)
    245 usually taken from home page screen for websites, title page for e-books and journals.
    GMD (General Material Designation)
    $h [electronic resource]
    Variant titles can be taken from any place in the resource or cataloger supplied (in square brackets).
    260 (Publication, Distribution, Etc.)
    With websites, the 260 is taken from any available contact and date information.
    300 (Physical Description)
    Not used for websites, as they are considered non-physical resources.
  • More Variable Fields
    500 (General Note)
    “Always give the source of the title proper.” – AACR2 9.7B3
    500 Title from title screen.
    “For remote access resources, always give the date on which the resource was viewed for description.” -- AACR2 9.7B22
    500 Description based on contents viewed Oct. 3, 2009.
    Or you can combine them.
    Title from title screen (viewed on Oct. 3, 2009).
    538 (System Details Note)
    Remember, you won’t have these for provider-neutral records, but if you aren’t taking that approach, they are required if applicable.
  • More Variable Fields
    856 (Electronic Location and Access)
    Stop and think about the 2nd indicator (the relationship between the item the 856 links to and the item described by the record).
    Blank No information provided
    0 Resource (e.g. a website)
    1 Version of resource (e.g. record=print book, 856 = e-book)
    2 Related resource (e.g. finding aid for archival collection)
    8 No display constant generated
    At the very least, an 856 has to have $u (Uniform Resource Identifier).
