WHEN THE ORDER RECORD IS NOT USED FOR CATALOGING

 

It sometimes happens that an order is created on one record, and when the item is received it is determined that the order record should not be used for cataloging.

WRONG ORDER RECORD HAS BEEN CHOSEN

  1. Catalog the item on the correct record. Create a new MFHD and item record for the item in hand. Record the MFHD record number.
  2. On the record the item was ordered on (incorrect record):
    1. Check the suppress box on the bib record. SAVE THE BIB RECORD.
    2. Display the MFHD record:
    3. Create a subfield x in the 852 field. Type: Cataloged on MFHD # (the MFHD number the volume was created on).    Example: 852 |x Cataloged on MFHD 112344
    4. Check the suppress box on the MFHD record. SAVE THE RECORD


SETS AND SERIALS

When an order record has been added for an individual volume of an unanalyzed serial or set, do not use that order record to catalog the item.
    1. Catalog the item on the correct serial or set record, updating MFHDs and creating item records as appropriate. Record the MFHD record number on which that volume was created.
    2. On the record the item was ordered on (incorrect record): Follow steps 1-4 under section b above.


VIDEORECORDINGS. When the order record is a multivolume record, but the decision is made to analyze each volume:

  1. Import individual bib records, catalog and create MFHDs and items for each volume. Record the MFHD numbers.
  2. On the record the volumes were ordered on:
    1. Check the suppress box on the bib record. SAVE THE BIB RECORD.
    2. Display the MFHD.
    3. Create a subfield x in the 852 field. Type: Cataloged on MFHD #s. Record the MFHD numbers from each separately cataloged volume.    Example: 852 |x Cataloged on MFHDs 112345, 112346, 112347
    4. Check the suppress box on the MFHD record. SAVE THE RECORD.
