CatMet Management Group Minutes

January 18, 2012

Attendees: Peter Bushnell, Jane Anne Carey, Jimmie Lundgren, Hikaru Nakano, Betsy Simpson, Doug Smith, Priscilla Williams, Naomi Young

Shared Bib

Betsy and Naomi gave a recap of the shared bib face to face meeting at FCLA on January 10.  The main highlights will be covered during the upcoming department meeting.

Jane Anne gave an overview of the shared bib clean-up projects.  CMG members volunteered to do some test clean-up for the project to suppress holdings and items attached to suppressed bibs.

Analytic requests

The Education Library routinely submits analytic requests to the Catalog Problems mailbox.  Priscilla will ask that the requests be sent to Doug.


Recently, an unpublished pdf title was cataloged in OCLC and Aleph prior to its ingest into DLC - Diaries of a prolific professor: undergraduate research from the James Haskins Manuscript Collection.  Later, a UFDC link was added to the bib as well as a UFER UFDC holding, but there is no print copy available yet. According to DLC, the intention is to provide the title via print-on-demand (pod), and a pod copy will be added to the library's collection at some point.  A workflow may need to be established in the future.  An interesting additional point is that UFDC is planning to include CIP-type data in the pod title.

OCLC visit

A representative from OCLC is going to visit on February 2 morning to discuss WorldShare Management.
