Re: lcgft : genre form list from lc.

The lcgft is in Classification Web. Any term from the lcgft used in the 380 could also be placed in the 655;_7:
$a ... $2 lcgft, controlled in OCLC and provide linkage.

When on goes to the 380 field in authority work to enter form/genre of

them in the list is lcgft; however, it does not link anywhere.

LC website has it, but it is very difficult to find the terms in any kind
of order.  This list, by the way, is not in Catalogers Desktop.  A
candidate, perhaps?

student employees doing receiving and FastCat?

Hi all,

I was wondering if any of you have student employees doing receiving  
and FastCat at your libraries?  If so, does this work well for you?

Re: The end of shelf list cards

At FIU,  we phased out the card catalog, but retained the shelflist which
was in the cataloging department, not out in the public areas.    Main
reason was that the holdings are on the shelf list cards,  copies, volumes,
etc. We wanted to be sure the holdings would be available online.  That was
back in the 1990s or late 1980s,  I don't remember that far back.  May have
been two years or so, after the public catalog cards became scratch cards.

Repeating 520?

On either Autocat or RDA-L someone asked about repeating 520s in order
to have paragraphs.  I answered that SLC only uses repeating 520s for
multiple descriptions, e.g., a set or kit.  

I suggested hyphens as in 505.  In an offlist message John Marr
suggests using 520$b to create a break; $b can only be used once per
520, and is for a fuller description than in $a.

Oxford Medieval Texts, copyright date and reprint date

Hello,
We've just received 22 volumes of modern reprints of Oxford Medieval Texts.
For some of these, there are records on OCLC with the modern date in the
date of publication field (MARC 260 subfield c)--and sometimes a single
date in the fixed field of the modern year and sometimes this field
reflects both the older and modern dates. For other titles, there is no
'modern' record at all.

For example, the title page verso has a copyright date of 1972 and it reads
beneath the copyright date "Reprinted 2002".  For some titles with this
date scenario there is only the 1972 record on OCLC. For other titles,
there is the 1972 record and a record for 2002 has been inputted.

Would you use the 2002 records? Would you alter a call number to include
the 2002--or add the 2002 date? Or would you use the 1970's records--and
keep the 1970's date in the call number for these new reprints? Maybe add a
note saying reprint with year?

Not all the volumes have had a 2000's record inputted.

Thoughts?

With thanks,
-Carissa

Re: All caps in 245 title

We don't key in as many brief order records as we used to (due to importing order records) but when we do, they
are in all caps. I doubt that this is a formal practice, because the records are temporary, but it seems to be
a common one.

Is it still common practice to have the title in all caps as an indicator that this is a temporary brief
record?  If so, is this a formal cataloguing practice?

Thanks for your help.

The end of shelf list cards

Colleagues

Although this may be old news to most of you, I learned at the ALA Annual Conference that OCLC will phasing out
catalog cards and accession cards on September 30, 2015. I work in a UCLA-affiliated rare books and
manuscripts library. Because of both security and back-up we continue to order shelf-list cards, but we
are the last remaining library at UCLA to do so. I'm wondering if anyone on this list is also concerned with
this service decommission from OCLC and if so, what your plans are as of October 1st. 

Thank you,

help batch exporting from Horizon

Hi all,

Full disclosure-I'm not a cataloger but I can do some rudimentary exporting in Horizon. We are currently
without a cataloger but need to batch export records from Horizon (7.5.2). I've only been able to do single
exports. A colleague found these instructions:
https://vufind.org/wiki/marc_export_notes#sirsidynix_horizon but when I try any variation of
"bib# >= 1000 and bib# < 2000" I get "invalid syntax."

Is there anyone familiar with batch exporting from Horizon who could advise? We'd be very grateful!

Many thanks,

Ellen Keith
