Rules for a printed dictionary catalogue. 1904.

MARC21 We are using MARC21 to enter data to the Koha Library Management System An online version of the MARC manual is at http://www.loc.gov/marc/ Components of a MARC field are Field number – e.g. 100, 245, 260 First indicator – e.g. 100 first indicator 1 = surname Second indicator – e.g. in 245 second indicator = No. non-filing characters (e.g. “4” for “The” Subfield codes – e.g. in 260 |c or $c = publication date

An online version of the MARC manual is at http://www.loc.gov/marc/

Components of a MARC field are

Field number – e.g. 100, 245, 260

First indicator – e.g. 100 first indicator 1 = surname

Second indicator – e.g. in 245 second indicator = No. non-filing characters (e.g. “4” for “The”

Subfield codes – e.g. in 260 |c or $c = publication date

Brief entry fields For the inventory project, we are creating brief entries, with just enough information to identify an item uniquely. We are using: 100 / 110 = personal name main entry / corporate body main entry 245 = title 260 = publication details 490 = series 500 = notes We are also using some local fields to record Feminist Library classmarks and subjects

Challenges There are three challenges for the inventory project. The first challenge is the cause of the other two: Time. We do not have the time we need to fully document the entire collection before it is transferred. Extracting bibliographic information from the collection that uniquely identifies each item. Data entry. We need to enter the correctly extracted bibliographic information on the LMS.

Extracting Bibliographic Info Important task that volunteers are undertaking. Helen has created a form for them to fill out with as much info as they can find quickly. Where it is quicker to do so, they are also photocopying title pages and back title pages. It is quicker to do this when all or most of the information needed appears on one or two pages. It is important for volunteers to understand the information they are looking for. Otherwise we end up with an incomplete inventory.
