  • British phycological journal. Phycology = Wierkunde
  • We have a choice: general holding or detailed local holding. Both can be done from OCLC, but from different starting points.
  • WHY detailed holdings? Missing, withdrawn, Move to the basement…or any other location, move back to original location…
  • Ideal situation: Catalogue = holding on shelf = reflected in OCLC detailed holding
  • Step 1: Create a list with Title, call no., and Specific Holdings
  • Held by P4A/LHR – no other holdings
  • Start with Leader field…it looks like mathematics formula: ny a3n!
  • 007 field = physical description of journal
  • 008 various data elements, policy and language
  • Opened 008 field: method of acquisition, retention policy, lending policy, etc.
  • 852 field: information about location and numbering: vol.no. year ?
  • Take not of Cannot change instructions
  • Opened 852 field
  • Each field opens up a new little window, with more fields which must be completed. You actually start wishing that they disappear in stead of appear!
  • 853 field – captions, patterns
  • 1 st level enumeration, 1 st level chronology, frequency, etc.
  • 853 continues… frequency,
  • Completed Local holding record: TaxTalk. Holdings MKY 1(2008)-
  • e.g.State holdings : p4A, 988 other holdings. Also Default holding, Region holdings
  • VOLUME …ISSUE very confusing; journals are associated with volumes + issues as numbering devices.
  • Change holdings of one location to another location, cancel print copy to online
  • You really feel small compared to the mountain of work that awaits you…
  • NB NB Correct info on catalog,
  • Thanks to my dear colleague and friend, I conclude with this lovely picture!
