Full Record View -- Text from the Report
The fields included in Appendix D mockup represent a fairly simple single-volume monograph. Author, Title, Published, Format, Description, Notes, ISBN, and Subject are shown. Unlike the entries on the Results List, the Author, Title and Subject are hot-linked fields that would execute searches when clicked.
NOTE: As mentioned in the Results List section above, no lengthy discussion concerning precisely what fields should appear for all formats of material (book, serial, music, etc.) was felt to be necessary at this time. As implementation of the GUC nears, those decisions can be made based on decisions already made for the separate OPACS that will have been in use.
After the fields, navigation elements are presented again. The user is then presented with options to link to other views of the same record. MARC Tags is the only alternate view option illustrated; when viewing “MARC Tags”, clicking “Standard” would bring the user to the original Full Record. NOTE: Other views are available in ALEPH but were not deemed necessary for inclusion at this time by the Task Force. This may be an area that merits further discussion once a working GUC is available for testing and experience with the separate catalogs has been gained.
Instructions shown in Appendix D at the bottom of the Full Record screen may or may not be necessary depending on whether the ultimate union catalog design has locations provided right on the Full Record (as illustrated) or on a separate screen. The illustration provides an example of how instructions could be included. A future Task Force should decide if this element is needed after experimenting with a working version of the GUC.
