Copy Cataloging Library Assistant 3 position

Interviews are completed.  A decision will be made soon.

Copy numbers

Recently, the branches agreed to dispense with using copy numbers on spine labels.  CMG is inclined to eliminate copy designators and descriptions on holdings and items.  Before implementing, CMG is gathering more information.  Jane Anne is going to check to find out if any special collections material should continue to get copy numbers, and Doug is going to see if any macros would need to be revised.  Betsy said that Michele Crump is planning to bring this topic up at a Circulation Discussion Group meeting on February 21.

UFSTO bibs without OCLC numbers

6,000+ UFSTO bibs are missing OCLC numbers.  Approximately 1,000 are add copies that the deduplication team at ALF will encounter.  A workflow needs to be developed for cataloging these titles.
