Re: how to effectively note that a book (even though it is "dated") should be retained in the collection

This likely will depend on what your system is capable of.  In Sirsi/Dynix
Symphony, we can create what they call "item categories", which enable
filtering of results and mass API editing if need be.  This enables us to
trap various categories, such as patron-driven acquisitions, depository
items, and open-access e-resources.  We also use a bib tag 583
<http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bd583.html> to identify items which
are being retained as the copy of last resort within our local consortium
(one library among the four members of TRLN, agrees to retain their copy in
perpetuity as the last copy within the consortium).  Obviously, the 583 can
be displayed in the catalog if we choose to index and display that field,
but the item cats generally cannot.

Re: how to effectively note that a book (even though it is "dated") should be retained in the collection

Does your system allow notes in the non-public display?  If so, that 
would be the place for the note.  It not, use a 590 local note.

how to effectively note that a book (even though it is "dated") should be retained in the collection

My supervisor has asked me to poll the "collective wisdom"-

We have various books which we retain in our collection even though they are now superseded by other more
up-to-date books.

We keep them because-in their time-they were landmark books.
(We are a research library.)

For example, we have the book "Peoplesfile Index" (produced by the Global Mapping Project in 1986) which
was an early work in listing ethnic groups by country.

Our concern is how best to record that this book is a "keeper" so that it wouldn't inadvertently get weeded in
the future.

We could-write a note physically in the book.

We could-use a 590 note, e.g. "Never discard this title because it has historical significance as an early
resource used by our researchers."

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Re: Same LC Call Number

The "Understanding 12-lead EKGs" should have been cutter .B374.  At CIP stage they thought it was an edition
of the "Understanding EKGs"  which is cutter .B378.    Books done as CIPs can be a problem, which may have been
compounded since these are all marked as "Do not acquire" which is why they may be invisible in the OPAC.  I do
not know if PSD makes changes to records for works that LC does not own.

Re: An amazing record

Jim,

You've asked the magic question:

>Is there anything we can do about it? Or do we just keep doing what we have always done?

As with other changes, my hunch is we'll find a way to work with this kind of information.

Fwd: Thank you: A Dilemma with Icon for Nonmusical Sound Recording

Dear Autocat,

Since our recent migration to Polaris, we have run into a dilemma, namely,
we are unable to display in OPAC the correct icon for nonmusical sound
recordings (Please see the 2nd icon). Musical and nonmusical sound
recordings share the same icon (Please see the 1st icon), thus confusing
both patron and staff.
      Icon for musical sound recordings: [image: Nonmusical Sound
Recording]

      Icon for nonmusical sound recordings:[image: Book + CD]

As an alternative, we have been advised to add an additional 006 field
(Additional Materials Characteristics) to trick the system into displaying
the correct icon. It seems that such an approach is not unprecedented. OCLC
records 777157714 and 741407514 have both added field 006.

Our question: Is adding field 006 truly the best advisable method when
items in hand are not really accompanied.by additional materials?

Thank you for your kind help and time.

Hui-Lan

Book jobbers

Hello, All:

Our small, social sciences academic library is looking to replace our
current book jobber.

~ Whom do you all recommend for physical processing of large book orders?
~ Which service do you currently use?
~ Have you abandoned traditional book distributors for a patron-driven
acquisition model?
~ Do you just use Amazon and process everything in-house?

For example, I would love to be able to sign up with Rittenhouse, but our
subject areas don't really coincide.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Re: Same LC Call Number

In the LC OPAC they have different dates of publication.  If they  had been published the same year, work
letters would have been used.  The third edition is "2013" in the 050 field, and the 4th edition is "2014".
