Planning for July 1 organizational change

CMG discussed various aspects of the July 1 organizational change when HumCat and SciSocCat will be merged to form the Contributed Cataloging Unit:


Records for a subset of UFDC should be in Mango soon. [Subsequent to the meeting, word was received that the records are available in Mango.]

CMG continued its review of a spreadsheet listing current digital projects to determine the cataloging status and contact persons.

Documents Cataloging Project

CMG discussed the pilot report, which was submitted to Dean Russell, John Ingram, and Rachel Schipper on June 1.   

Cataloging question re. EU annuals

In response to a question from Doug, prior to the meeting, Naomi gave input that it is preferable to treat the annuals as serials if possible.  The goal is to improve the display and cataloging workflow.   

Sharing tips with library

CMG discussed methods for notifying the library about catalog-related tips, for example, the recently developed Mango-Aleph Comparison Chart, and decided to investigate using a LibGuide.
