January 8, 2013
Attendees: Peter Bushnell, Jane Anne Carey, Jimmie Lundgren, Hikaru Nakano, Betsy Simpson, Doug Smith, Priscilla Williams, Naomi Young
No word yet on the exact dates for the RDA NACO training - expect to hear in early February.
A new link will be created on the department RDA page to record local policies as developed.
January 15 meeting about move: no floor plan for the first floor is available for distribution yet; Naomi plans to send an e-mail to Facilities pointing out the need for automatic door openers.
January 31 quarterly meeting: Rachel invited Jeff Lajza to discuss the move.
Beginning September 2007 the department initiated BIBCO as the default for original cataloging. CMG discussed the extent to which this has occurred and brainstormed possible reasons for not submitting records as BIBCO (e.g., low priority material, foreign languages). It's possible refresher training could be helpful, especially in light of PCC's new combined Bibliographic Standard Record (BSR).
Cataloging is waiting for IT to update coding for ETD records in UFDC, at which point the copy catalogers can edit the May and August graduations in UFDC, and those records can be loaded into Aleph.
Acquisitions has requested assistance with a backlog of approximately 1,100 shelf-ready titles resulting from difficulties with loading into shared bib.
U Miami material
Naomi and Hank are assisting ALF staff with processing the U Miami serials sent to ILF.
Jane Anne reminded CMG to complete work on the list of holdings with 852 $z on order linked to bibs with OCLC numbers.
