  5. 5. If using RDA 33X fields… 336 Content Type = “what kind of information is it?” three-dimensional form ǂb tdf ǂ2 rdacontent 337 Media Type = “do I need equipment to view it?” unmediated ǂb n ǂ2 rdamedia 338 Carrier Type = “where is it stored?” or “what kind of container holds it?” object ǂb nr ǂ2 rdacarrier --Susan Moore, University of North Iowa

  7. 7. CHALLENGES • Many, many pieces!!! • Time-consuming to process and monitor pieces in circulation. • How to label? How will you store these materials? • How will you circulate? Counting pieces after item returned? • How to keep track of missing and broken pieces? (Note on item? Note in record? Create spreadsheet?) • How will you handle replacements for missing pieces, extra pieces, replacements for consumable parts, etc.? If you decide to collect technology materials, please keep in mind that some of your patrons may have difficulty accessing all the components: for example, if the manual is online, etc.
