|Minimum Level Records: Monographic Series|
The procedures described in this document are to be followed by all staff with responsibility for creating records in Orbis for serial analytics.
The procedures in this document are described as follows:
Part 1: General procedures for all serial analytic records
Part 2: Creating a new minimal-level serial analytic record
Part 3: Creating a serial analytic record using "standard" copy from OCLC or RLIN
Part 4: Authority Validation
Part 5: Recording information in the Orbis MFHD
Part 1: General Procedures for all Serial Analytic Bibliographic Records
For general procedures, refer to:
If no cataloging copy is found, follow the procedures in Part 2 for creating a new serial analytic record.
Part 2: Creating a New Serial Analytic Record
Code the fixed fields as follows, using the drop-down menus:
Type of Record system supplied as a (language material)
Bibliographic level system supplied as m (monograph/item)
Encoding level Assign the value 7 (minimal level)
Publication status Assign the code s
Date 1 (yyyy) (Beginning date of publication) and Date 2 (yyyy) (Ending date of publication) Record the date(s) of publication. If there is no date of publication on the item use 200u or, for older material, 19uu.
Place of publication Assign the appropriate code from the list of MARC Codes for Countries
Form of item If the work is a reproduction assign the appropriate code
Language Assign the appropriate code from the list of MARC Codes for Languages
Create variable fields as follows:
020 (ISBN) Record the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) in field 020 according to the following pattern:
Do not transcribe hyphens. If there is no ISBN present, you must delete the 020 field from the template before Voyager will allow the record to be saved.
100/700, 110/710, or 111 (Main entry: Personal, Corporate or Conference Name)
If the item has three or fewer authors, record the first named author in the appropriate 1xx field. If the item has no author or more than three authors, do not input a 1xx field and use a 7xx field for the first named author. If there is no 1xx and there is an editor, compiler, etc., record the name in field 7xx.
Search for the correct form of the heading (personal, corporate, or conference) in ORBIS and, if necessary, in LCDB. If a personal name or a corporate name is not represented in ORBIS or in LCDB, use the form of the name as found on the item (last name first for personal names unless instructed otherwise). Do not include dates even if such information is readily available on the item in hand.
If a conference name is not represented in ORBIS or in LCDB, do not record it in field 1xx or field 7xx.

245 a and b (Title and other title information) Record the title in field 245 according to the following pattern:
a Title : b other title information.

246 (Varying form of title) Record a varying form of the title in field 246 according to one of the following patterns as appropriate:
a Alternate form of word, etc. in title in field 245
Create field 246 in the following situations only:

Title page: Peace & war: reminiscences of a life on the frontiers of science
a Peace & war : b reminiscences of a life on the frontiers of science
a Peace and war

If there is more than one place of publication, record the first named only. If there is no place of publication, use [S.l.].
If there is no publisher, omit b (do not use [s.n.]). If there is no publication date, record the latest copyright date preceded by "c."
If there is no date of publication, use [200-] or, for older material, [19--] in c.
If item is a complete multi-part monograph, record the first date and the last date. If item is an incomplete multi-part monograph, record the first date only followed by a hyphen.

Proceed to Part 4: Authority Validation.
Part 3: Creating an Orbis Record Using "Standard" Copy from OCLC or RLIN
If a matching record is found in OCLC or RLIN and it meets the criteria below, it is considered "standard" copy and can be used as is as a preliminary record. Do not edit any fixed fields; edit variable fields only when it is necessary in the authority validation process to correct headings to their authorized forms.
An OCLC record is considered standard only if the Encoding level (Elvl) is blank, 1, I, L, 4 or 8.
An RLIN record is considered standard only if it has a CC value that is 9660 or begins with 91 or 94.
Proceed to Part 4: Authority Validation.
Part 4: Authority Validation
After completing the record, attempt to save the record by clicking on the sailboat icon labelled "Save to DB." The authority validation window will appear. Validate all of the headings which appear on the record (name and series) according to established policy.
