WorldCat records

Why do WorldCat bib records (presumably based on the OCLC records) not
display in the regular order, ISBD order, etc.

Look at the record for Targum of Canticles.  Why, for instance, is
responsibility separated from the title.  III records are much easier for
patrons to understand.
How do WMS libraries deal with these patron unfriendly records?

(Also where is the field 970 fully defined, indicators etc.

Subject headings for films

Collective Wisdom:

We are trying to determine what subject headings to apply for Spanish language films.  These are not films
with added Spanish sound tracks, but films generally produced in a Spanish speaking country.  Some titles
we have in our collection are Biutiful and Como agua para chocolate.  But I need a common denominator in each
record making them easily searched.

The best seems to be Foreign language films $x Spanish, but the subfield is a local addition.

Any help appreciated.

Who uses Library Thing for Libraries

Hello AutoCat subscribers:

I teach Information Organization for Simmons College. One of the
assignments I give my students includes searching a library catalog that
uses Library Thing for Libraries and exploring the tags used for specific
titles.

However, it appears that the library catalog I sent them to last semester
is no longer using Library Thing for Libraries. Can anyone give me the name
of a library (or two) who does?

Thanks.

Should a library be run by a volunteer?

Autocat readers,

Fredericksburg Community Library, in Ohio, is run completely by volunteers:

http://www.fredlib.org/?page_id=16


And although their web site doesn't proclaim the fact, last time I checked, so is the Selover Public
Library, in Chesterville, Ohio

http://selover.lib.oh.us/


On the occasions that I visited, both seemed to be serving their communities well.  Selover library is open
on Friday and Saturday evenings until 7:30, times when most public libraries have closed their doors.

On the other end of the spectrum: In my first position (in England in the 1970s) offers from members of the
community to provide help, specifically with shelf arrangement, were declined for various reasons,
notably that the union wouldn't countenance such activity.

Sincerely - Ian

With format integration, fields created for one genre become available
for others.  Perhaps the prime example of that is 246 which began as a
serials field.
