book producer

Autocat readers,

Thanks to Mark Ehlert for the link to the document Fast Track entries included in the April 2015 release of
RDA Toolkit   http://www.rda-jsc.org/docs/6JSC-Sec-15.pdf

I looked in it as well as in RDA for the relationship designator "book producer" but didn't see it where one
might expect it to be if present, that is, in I.4, Relationship Designators for Persons, Families, and
Corporate Bodies Associated with a Manifestation.

Sincerely - Ian

9xx fields

Been looking at IRs since that topic came up, and I found the use of field
988.  I know it is a local field, but I haven't found it, except by
Harvard.

Is there a list of these 9xx fields, defined?

What’s the Difference Between a Foreword, Preface, and Introduction?

Autocat readers,

The following may be of interest, excerpted from The BPS Books blog.  I found it while wondering why RDA I.3.1 has:

writer of introduction  A person, family, or corporate body contributing to an expression of a work by
providing an introduction to the original work.
writer of postface A person, family, or corporate body contributing to an expression of a work by providing
a postface to the original work.
writer of preface  A person, family, or corporate body contributing to an expression of a work by providing a
preface to the original work.

but not:

writer of foreword.

Sincerely - Ian

THE FOREWORD
A foreword (one of the most often misspelled words in the language) is most often written by someone other
than the author: an expert in the field, a writer of a similar book, etc. Forewords help the publisher at the
level of marketing: An opening statement by an eminent and well-published author gives them added

Adding Spanish cross references

All the comments to date are very heartening! For too long we have focused
on English-only subject access to our catalogs, ignoring to some extent
the linguistic demographics of the U.S.

In the project that David Bigwood referred to, librarians added curricular
terms successfully added as 4XX references in the local authority files of
several large school districts. That approach works very well, provided
these are not overwritten by any automated processes.

Resources: In addition to Spanish translations on Mike Kreyche's site that
Mary M. noted, and the Virtual International Authority File (VIAF) that
Scott P. referred to, there are a couple of other lists that are good
resources for those who may want to consider similar projects to the one
being considered in Denton:  Sears: Lista de Encabezamientos de Materia
(ISBN 9780824210588), and Subject Headings for School and Public
Libraries, 4th bilingual ed. (ISBN 9781591586388).

If there are other lists and resources that would be useful for this type
of effort, perhaps others will post them here as well!

[Typo of the day for librarians] Berrr* (for Berry, Berries, etc.)

Just this week, the most charming book appeared on my office shelf for  
series questions. Jacob Biggle's The Biggle Berry Book: Small Fruit Facts  
from Bud to Box Conserved into Understandable Form constitutes part of the  
Biggle Farm Library, and it's jam-packed (terrible pun intended) with  
vintage photographs and color plates, as well as a plenitude of advice  
about berry cultivation. The book was first published in 1894, and this  
tiny excerpt demonstrates just how passionate Mr. Biggle was about his  
fruits:

The only just and true way for an honorable and manly man is to grow them,  
and let everybody about the place have all he can eat. For the berry comes  
from the garden to the table in tempting and presentable shape, fit to  
grace the table of a king.

That's pretty much how I feel about raspberries. As a mostly unsuccessful  
grower, I was inspired to order this book for my personal collection and am  
planning to give it another try this year. However, don't even get me  
started about rhubarb!

Perhaps you detest rotten Berrr*-ies and will feel inspired to weed them  
out of your catalog. Today's typo appears 3 times in OhioLINK and 104 in  
WorldCat.

Special Topics A to Z

Hello,

In the KF schedule, I have seen with some regularity what appears to me to be an “and the kitchen sink”
classification. For example the following

KFC77.5

Which is United States (California)—The legal profession. Practice of law – Law office
management…. Special topics, A-Z
There are 2 special topics listed below  that say to apply table KF7

Is there documentation on how this is to be used?

Would it be correct to set one up for Law office automation

Such as the following

KFC77.5.A9

If the subject heading for the item was

Law offices ‡z California ‡x Automation.

Does the choice of topic require the term to be a valid subdivision?

Are there instructions for creating special topics listings that I just haven’t been able to locate?

Thank you

Update on OCLC Institution Record transition

Thank you for your comments and questions about OCLC's approach to Institution Records (IRs). We
understand that many of you are concerned about the loss of IRs, and we appreciate your feedback.
Libraries that are using IRs were notified by OCLC, but we did not make a more public announcement so I would
like to take this opportunity to share some additional information.

Institution Records were implemented in 2007 to support libraries migrating from RLG to OCLC. The purpose
of an IR is to store a copy of the bibliographic record along with local data, but IRs don't take advantage of
cooperatively-managed master record data or future linked data initiatives. The alternative to IRs is
Local Bibliographic
Data<http://www.oclc.org/content/dam/support/documentation/cataloging/Working_with_LBDs.pdf>
(LBD), which enables master record data to be cooperatively managed by thousands of experts and OCLC
staff while providing library-specific information for discovery applications. Also, LBDs support
future linked data initiatives and entities-based cataloging workflows.

The ability to create IRs via batchload will conclude in December 2015. Connexion will support creation of
IRs until June 2016 when support for IRs will end. OCLC is offering these options to help libraries
transition information in IRs to LBDs:

1.     Delete existing IRs

2.     Create LBDs from existing IRs or from local system records

For more information, please see the FAQ<http://www.oclc.org/connexion/resources.en.html> or send a
message to IRInfo@...<mailto:IRInfo@...>.
In the coming days, we will do our best to address all of the comments and questions you've shared and we will
update the FAQ with some additional information.

Sincerely,
Sandi
