Cataloging activity related to UFDC
Jackie Brown is working on the IFAS project and is towards the end.
Naomi said that a project was started on getting abstracts added to records for the digital library. Doug will loan a student for the project.
Library units have been asked to fill in a template for collections that they want to have digitized.
Nancy said that Blake has a classical studies collection and he will make a decision whether to digitize or bind them.
Shared storage facility
Dean Russell recommended that a larger pilot project should be done. Jan said that the Congressional Serial Set could be moved to storage if it is cataloged, which would free up space to move a portion of the storage documents collection back to campus to catalog at a more manageable pace.
Jason is working on a list of Items not found in ALEPH for AFA and they will be marked as lost.
Sixty books have been reclassed by the Copy Cataloging Unit using a new procedure.
Betsy handed out a list of OCLC authorizations and asked Catmet managers to let her know which authorizations are being used by their unit’s staff.
Serials solutions 360 MARC
The library has purchased the Serials Solutions 360 MARC product for e-books. Priscilla and Gerald will complete the cataloging profile and serve as cataloging contacts.
The department loads files of upgraded book records with FUG holdings delivered via OCLC's Bib Notification Service. As much as possible, catalogers should update OCLC when revising records locally.
Tenure & Promotion Committee
At LFA meeting, Jimmie suggested that the committee have election of T & P committee members in the Spring.
Gloria Cockerham will retire on Friday, January 30th. Her celebration will be held on January 29th.
