CD's for text books & labeling program

Hi Collective Wisdom:

1- Do you have a circulating policy or what do you usually do with CD's
that come with the text books?
Our library has policy for to keep at least two copies of text books as
course reserve books.
After each term, we keep some of the course reserves and add them to our
collection but it really depends.
Leaving them inside the books has been the practice. Since these book
reserves enter our system temporarily, we do not create detailed holdings
for the CD's (no barcode or label on them).
What are your suggestions?
Just an idea, for future reference, could it be a project to creating a
database or just a list for these CD's that we put all together in one
place? Right now, it gets lost easily and they are in everywhere. My
manager wants my opinion about it. I have no idea right now.

2- Also, I need your help for finding a good labeling program. I started to
do the labels by creating an excel sheet first, then I print and cut each
label according to the spines and tape them. I want more professional look.
What has been your practice? Our budget is tight.

"*please reply in private message.*"

Sincerely,

Nurhak Tuncer

Re: How to batch delete holdings within OCLC

Hi, Steve,
	Check the Autocat archives for approximately mid-October 2014 - I posed this same/very similar question
at that time and rec'd some very good responses. If you can't come up with it in the archives, let me know and
I'll go back through my files - I saved most of the replies but would need to edit them before forwarding to
you (notes were added by internal staff and myself) but I'll be glad to do that next week if you need it. We had
a student actually set up the batch delete system that was used and I wouldn't be able to give you a decent
explanation myself!

Subject: How to batch delete holdings within OCLC

Hello everyone, 

I have deleted holdings before by exporting a list of OCLC numbers from my OPAC. Unfortunately, some years
ago we tried the Ebsco service for MARC records for all the e-journal titles in our databases. 

What. A. Mess.  I realize I goofed big time to have Ebsco set our holdings on OCLC. 

We continue to receive ILL requests for titles we no longer have because we have canceled the database that
held that title. I have no training or previous experience obtaining batches of records *from* OCLC. I

Class number for Film industry--Environmental Aspects

I just created a copy-catalog record for the e-book The Cinematic
Footprint, which deals with the environmental aspects of the film industry.
It is classed as PN1993.5.A1, which deals with the history of film, general
works. Is there a better classification number for this?

[Typo of the day for librarians] Sequal* (for Sequel, etc.)

It's not often that a typo blog entry demands a sequel, but this one is too  
good to resist. You might recall that Monday's post related the story of  
shipyourenemiesglitter.com, the Australian start-up company specializing in  
(mostly harmless) revenge.

Well, since then I've discovered that the pressure was simply too much for  
the 22-year-old founder to bear. As reported in the Toronto Star, the  
company launched on January 13, and by January 16 it was up for auction. If  
you're still not convinced the revenge business is a profitable one,  
"bidding started at just a dollar, but by Thursday [January 22] and 345  
bids later, the site sold for a whopping $85,000 US" To give an old saw a  
slight twist, perhaps all that glitter really IS gold!

Sequal* is not, however, golden. It's a moderate-probability error with 17  
entries in OhioLINK and 896 in WorlCat. Not all are actually typos, though,  
so you'll have to be careful ridding yourself of them.

Sources for Information in the MARC 518 field?

Hi everyone!

I'm looking for help for knowing what sources of information can be used
for the MARC 518 field.  Does it have to be on the item somewhere, or can
cataloger's knowledge be included?

Here's our situation: our university records lectures given here, IT
creates DVDs for us for circulation, and we have some control over the
information included on the inserts, but not for older items/it's not worth
it in time or resources to try to reprint all the DVD covers.

Three of our series have useful place information on the DVD box insert:

Human Rights Lecture Series

500 Locally produced videorecording of "Human Rights Lecture Series ;
Recorded at Soka University of America, Calabasas, October 24, 1994."

Commencement

500 Locally produced videorecording "Recorded at Performing Arts Center,
Soka University of America, Aliso Viejo, Friday, May 24, 2013."

Changemakers

500 Locally produced videorecording "Recorded at Performing Arts Center,
Soka University of America, Aliso Viejo, October 29, 2014."

The fourth series, however, includes information on the box that is really
only helpful if you know about the campus and school:
