Cheat sheets for CD-ROM cataloging

copy cataloging checklist

SEARCHING TIPS:

Before searching RLIN, enter the command:

sel fil bks, ser, vim, mdf

If there is reason to suspect the CD-ROM is a map or score, add map or sco to the list of files to be searched.

In current cataloging, bib. records for CD-ROMs are formatted based on their content-type (book, serial, visual material) rather than their carrier-type (computer data file). RLIN assigns the bib. record to a file based on its content-type. (On RLIN records, the second letter in the BLT fixed field.) In older cataloging, bib. records for CD-ROMs were always formatted as computer files; these records are likely to be in the RLIN MDF file.

OCLC does not use separate file formats. A number or sca ti search will search all formats.

Clarr can handle any format type.

DESCRIPTIVE VERIFICATION:

Use this checklist to verify CD-ROMs, not CDs (i.e., sound discs). This checklist applies only to bibliographic records where the CD-ROM is the primary (as opposed to accompanying) material cataloged.

This checklist does NOT apply to situations:

  • where a book is accompanied by a CD-ROM;
  • where a serial issue is accompanied by a CD-ROM;
  • where the CD-ROM is part of a mixed media kit.

REQUIRED:

Required fields must be added to the bibliographic record if the record was not cataloged by LC (consider records with 042 pcc to be LC).

Required Fixed Fields:

Add 007 if the RT is not m. Do not add if RT is m (redundant).

To create a 007 field,

1. Place the cursor at the bottom of the record (HOME BACK-TAB)

2. Type 007c and press ENTER

Use macro to enter:

1. SMD: o <lower case o; not zero>

2. COL: u <=unknown>

3. DIM: g <=4 3/4, the standard size>

4. SOUND: u <=unknown>

Required Variable Fields:

245: must have |h[computer file]
300 field must have the following:
300: |a <no.> computer laser optical disc <or discs>|c 4 3/4 in.

If there is accompanying material, it must be recorded in 300 |e. If |e is added to the record, it should be revised.

538 If there is no 538 field, it must be added and the record should be revised. Take information from the accompanying material.

500 If there is no 500 note indicating the source for the 245, it must be added. The chief source is the title screen displayed when the software is run. If you don't have access to a CD-ROM reader, check with someone who does. If there is no title screen, AACR2 says to check "other formally presented internal evidence (e.g. main menus, program statements)."

500::Title from title screen.
500::Title from main menu.

If no title screen or substitute is found, the note can cite external sources (in the following order of preference):

500::Title from disc. <or Title from label on disc>
500::Title from accompanying documentation.
500::Title from container.

If a 500 note is added, the record should be revised.

Always add:

655:_7:CD-ROMs|2lcsh

<use a macro>

RECORD HOLDINGS:

$kCD-ROM was once used for all SML locations; it is no longer used [Sept. 2001])

Electronic Text Center:

The Electronic Text Center is now located behind the reference desk.

Class code is L; use LC classif. call no.; (LC) below call no.: same as SML

Orbis location code: sml,cd

EXAMPLE:

001 1L CN |a sml,cd |b PQ1643 |c C66;1998

SML reference:

CD ROMS flagged as "SML Reference" are assigned the same location code as the Electronic Text Center (sml,cd) but are NOT assigned call numbers.

The SML Reference CD ROM collection is located across the nave from the reference desk in the Public card catalog alcove.

Class code is T; NO CALL NUMBER

Orbis location code: sml,cd

EXAMPLE:

001 1T CN | a sml,cd

ART:

Class code is T; use VIM

EXAMPLE:

001 1T CN | a art | b VIM | c 225

DO NOT RE-EDIT:

Member copy:

RT: Do not change the RT code.
[In current cataloging, RT is determined by whether it is a book, serial, etc.; in older cataloging RT is m. If RT is m, leave as is.]

007: If the RT is m, do not add a 007 field if it is not there.

Note order. Leave as is. (e.g. 538 does not have to be the first note)

LC copy (including all 042 pcc):

No re-editing al all (but do add 655)

SML PROCESSING:

CD-ROMs are sent to Preparations. Leave on the same book truck used for books, serials, etc.

FMT F RT k BL m

If the cataloger is working from an in-process record, the format may need to be changed. Use the command fmt - <format code>. Caution: the hyphen after fmt is essential.

EXAMPLE: fmt - f <to convert an in-process record from book format to visual material format>

If the cataloger is entering a new record into Orbis (i.e. there is no in-process record to reformat), the command is new <format code>, e. g. new d <no hyphen!> to create a record in the computer file format.

LIST OF NOTIS FORMAT CODES:

  • b books
  • s serials
  • m music
  • p maps
  • u manuscripts
  • f visual materials
  • d computer files

The format code displays in the FMT field. It can only be changed with the fmt command. FMT is a NOTIS fixed field and has no corresponding MARC leader equivalent; the codes are not in the USMARC bibliographic format but correspond to the USMARC Material Type categories that determine validity of the RT code. In NOTIS, FMT determines which values may be entered in RT/BL (equivalent to RLIN BLT or OCLC TYPE/BLVL) which in turn correspond to USMARC Leader 06 and 07. (Detailed scope notes for Leaders 06/07 are in the USMARC BIBLIOGRAPHIC FORMAT file on the LC DESKTOP)

In field RT (USMARC Leader 06; RLIN BLT <first character>, OCLC TYPE), record codes may be entered or changed by the cataloger.

When an already existing record is reformatted, the RT code remains the same and should be reevaluated by the cataloger based on the guidelines detailed in this document.

When a new record command is entered, a default code is generally entered by the system into RT. If the correct format has been selected, the default code should be appropriate according to 1998 guidelines. (fmt - m defaults to scores code c; code j for sound recording would not be used in any case)

EXCEPTION: the new command for visual materials does not have a default value. The cataloger must choose the appropriate record type code.

LIST OF RECORD TYPE CODES:

In NOTIS, the RT codes can only be used in tandem with the appropriate NOTIS FMT code, which is listed on the right in angle brackets.

  • c printed music <FMT M>
  • d manuscript music <FMT M applicable to reproductions of manuscripts?>
  • e printed cartographic material <FMT P>
  • f manuscript cartographic material <FMT P>
  • g projected media <FMT F (slides, motion pictures, videos, transparencies)>
  • i nonmusical sound recording <FMT m; not app. to CD ROM?>
  • j musical sound recording <not app. to CD ROM>
  • k two-dimensional non-projectable graphic <FMT F: e.g. charts, pictures, photographs>
  • m computer file <FMT D>
  • o kit <not app. to CD ROM>
  • p mixed material <NOT RECOGNIZED BY NOTIS>
  • r three dimensional artifact or naturally occurring object <not app. to CD ROM>
  • t manuscript language material <FMT A applicable to reproductions of manuscripts?>

In field BL (USMARC leader 07; RLIN BLT <2nd character>, OCLC TYPE), record codes may be entered or changed by the cataloger.

LIST OF BIBLIOGRAPHIC LEVEL CODES:

  • a monograph component part
  • b serial component part
  • c collection
  • d subunit
  • m monograph/item
  • s serial

Catalogers will generally use only codes m or s.

The decision on format/record type/bib level is the cataloger's. An essential resource for making the decision is the document OCLC-MARC coding guidelines available at:

http://www.oclc.org/oclc/cataloging/type.htm

Prior to 1998, standards required all CD-ROMs to be RT m (computer data file).

Effectively from 1998, record type is determined by the CD ROM's contents.

CD ROMs with contents such as computer software (e.g. Excel 97 on CD ROM), numeric databases, computer oriented multimedia, and online systems or services (e.g. OCLC Passport on CD ROM) would continue to be coded m, unless that content is also a "significant aspect" of another category, in which case the cataloger should code for the category of the significant aspect. OCLC example is for map vector data; numeric (normally code m) but coded as map (e).

Other examples in the Orbis database that would be RT m:

Multiple cause of death file. Orbis FLE8021. Subject: Death--United States--Causes--Statistics--Databases.

For CD ROM contents that do not fall into the m categories, the cataloger should now code for the "significant aspect" (e.g. language material, graphic, cartographic material, sound, music, moving image).

In our example:

Farber gravestones. Originally entered in Orbis as FLT3041. FMT D RT m BL m. In the Torbis example, reformatted to FMT F RT k BL m to follow 1998 guidelines. Catalog of a photography collection with reproductions of the photographs as the primary aspect. Format is visual material (F); record type is two-dimensional non-projectable graphic (k); bib level is multipart, non-serial item (m).

OTHER EXAMPLES:

Kant's gesammelte Schriften nach den B_anden I-XIII der Akademie-Textausgabe. (On Orbis FLR3273 FMT D RT m BL m)
In 1998 coding would now be: FMT B RT a BL m <format book - record type language material - bib level monograph>

LC ClassPlus (a serial updated quarterly): FMT S RT a BL s <format serial - record type language material - bib level serial>

Library of environmental images (On Orbis FLN1385 FMT D RT m BL m).
In 1998, coding would now be:FMT F RT k BL m <format visual - record type graphic - bib. level monograph>

Litchfield County, CT : digital orthophoto quadrangal data. (On Orbis FLE7960 coded FMT D RT m BL m)
In 1998, coding would now be FMT P RT e BL m <format map - record type map - bib level monograph> In this case the content is numeric, but also a significant aspect of the map category, and should be coded as map e.

Borderline situations:

OCLC: "In case of doubt, or if the most significant aspect cannot be determined, consider the item a computer file."

EXAMPLES:

Langlands & Bell. (On Orbis FLV9729 coded FMT D RT m BL m).
"Includes images, audio interviews, video material, film footage, biography, bibliography, essays, etc." FMT would probably not change if cataloged in 1998. RT coded p would seem to be the right code, but NOTIS does not accept it in tandem with FMT D.

Perseus 1.0 : interactive sources and studies on ancient Greece. (On Orbis FGX6136 coded FMT D RT m BL m)
"A multimedia interactive database designed to facilitate the study of archaic and classical Greece and to expand the ways in which ancient Greek literature, history, art, and archaeology can be examined. Contains Greek texts and English translations, and 5,000 images of art, sites, and monuments from throughout the Greek world." FMT would probably not change if cataloged in 1998.

Seriality aspect.

If the contents of the CD ROM fall within the computer file category effective in 1998 (i.e. computer software, numeric databases, computer oriented multimedia, and online systems or services) and the CD ROM is also a serial, use FMT D RT m BL s.

EXAMPLE:

Crime in the United States. (Orbis FLE5533. FMT D RT m BL s).
Numeric data issued serially.

If the contents of the CD ROM are not within the 1998 computer file category and the significant aspect is textual, and the CD ROM is also a serial, use FMT S RT a BL s.

EXAMPLE:

MLA international bibliography. (On Orbis FKT8643 FMT D RT m BL s).
In 1998, coding would be FMT S RT a BL s <format serial - record type textual - bib. level serial> Textual data issued serially.

If the contents of the CD ROM are not within the 1998 computer file category and the significant aspect is non-textual (e.g. graphic, map, music etc.), and the CD ROM is also a serial, code the FMT and RT for the non-textual aspect (e.g. FMT P RT e) and BL s.

EXAMPLE:

NOAA weather charts. Chart series C, Tropical strip/precipitation and observed weather charts. (On Orbis FMT D RT m BL s)
In 1998, coding would be FMT F RT k BL s <format visual - record type graphic - bib level serial> Non projectable visual material issued serially.

T/MAT z TECH n GOVT A/MAT R/TIME nnn

NOTIS FMT F (for visual materials) will always bring up these fixed fields.

T/MAT (type of material) is equivalent to USMARC 008/33=006/16. Values are:

  • a Art original
  • b Kit
  • c Art reproduction
  • d Diorama
  • f Filmstrip
  • g Game
  • i Picture
  • k Graphic
  • l Technical drawing
  • m Motion picture
  • n Chart
  • o Flash card
  • p Microscope slide
  • q Model
  • r Realia
  • s Slide
  • t Transparency
  • v Videorecording
  • w Toy
  • z Other

In this case z (Other) has been selected.

TECH is equivalent to USMARC 008/34=006/16. Values are:

  • a Animation
  • c Animation and live action
  • l Live action
  • n Not applicable
  • u Unknown
  • z Other

In this case n (Not appicable) has been selected.

GOVT The same codes are used in books format are used here.

A/MAT Accompanying matter (USMARC 008/24-19=006/7-12). Values:

  • # No accompanying matter <BLANK>
  • a Discography

In the example, <blank> is used for no accompanying material.

R/TIME Always use nnn <not applicable>

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

006

006 TYP m T/AUD DF/TYP c GOVT

The values used in 006 represent "computer file" and in effect repeat information already entered in 007 using different codes. 007 is the primary fixed field representation of "computer file," but locally we will add 006 in addition to enhance keyword searching by format. (GMD c is not indexed as a format qualifier in Orbis keyword searching, but TYP m is.)

TYP (Type of material)

m Computer file <always>

T/AUD (Target audience) Value depends on the item in hand, but generally blank.

blank <unknown or unspecified>

DF/TYP (computer file type). Equivalent to USMARC 008/26-006/09

  • a Numeric data

FROM Guidelines for Distinguishing Cartographic Materials on Computer File Carriers from other Materials on Computer File Carriers, Jan. 1998
< http://lcweb.loc.gov/marc/cfmap.html >

Assigning code "m" for Computer file

USMARC definition: 

     m - Computer file
     Code m indicates that the content of the record is for the following classes of electronic resources: computer software (including programs, games, fonts),
     numeric data, computer-oriented multimedia, online systems or services. For these classes of materials, if there is a significant aspect that causes it to fall into
     another Leader/06 category, code for that significant aspect (e.g., vector data that is cartographic is not coded as numeric but as cartographic). Other classes
     of electronic resources are coded for their most significant aspect (e.g., language material, graphic, cartographic material, sound, music, moving image). In
     case of doubt or in cases where the most significant aspect cannot be determined, consider the item a computer file.

Use code "m" (Computer file) for the following items, even though they have a cartographic aspect or subject matter: 

- Computer games, even those that may have cartographic or geographic content 

06 - Type of record

A one-character code that indicates the characteristics of and defines the components of the record.

a - Language material
This code is also used for microforms of language material.
c - Printed music
This code is also used for microforms of printed music.
d - Manuscript music
This code is also used for microforms of manuscript music.
e - Printed map
This code is also used for microforms of printed maps.
f - Manuscript map
This code is also used for microforms of manuscript maps.
g - Projected medium
The described item is a motion picture, videorecording, filmstrip, slide, transparency, or material specifically designed for overhead projection.
i - Nonmusical sound recording
j - Musical sound recording
k - Two-dimensional nonprojectable graphic
This code is used for items such as activity cards, charts, collages, computer graphics, drawings, duplication masters, flash cards, paintings, photonegatives, photoprints, pictures, postcards, posters, prints, spirit masters, study prints, technical drawings, transparency masters, photomechanical reproductions, and reproductions of any of these.
m - Computer file
The described item is numeric or textual data, computer software, or a combination of these types of information that are encoded for computer processing.
o - Kit
The described item contains a mixture of components from two or more types of items, no one of which is the predominent constituent of the kit.
p - Mixed material
r - Three-dimensional artifact or naturally occurring object
This code is used for such man-made objects as models, dioramas, games, puzzles, simulations, sculptures and other three-dimensional art works and their reproductions, exhibits, machines, clothing, toys, and stitchery. It also includes such naturally occurring objects as microscope specimens and other specimens mounted for viewing.
t - Manuscript language material

FOOTNOTES:

   1.Computer files cover material encoded for manipulation by computer. These materials fall within the scope of Chapter 9 of AACR2 and, where applicable,
     the Guidelines for Bibliographic Description of Interactive Multimedia (ALA, 1994) for those institutions choosing to use these optional guidelines.
     Included are data (e.g., text, image, numeric, sound) and software (e.g., spreadsheets, word processors, games) that may be stored on, or contained in,
     carriers available by direct access (e.g., CD-ROMs) or by remote access (e.g., Internet resources). 
   2.Applying the latest published version of the National Level Record (NLR) standard, code all bytes and fields designated by the NLR as mandatory, and
     supply any applicable bytes and fields designated by the NLR as mandatory-if-applicable. The NLR standard is detailed in Appendix A of the USMARC
     Format for Bibliographic Data prepared by the Network Development and MARC Standards Office, Library of Congress. NOTE: Depending on the
     individual automated system or bibliographic utility, part or all of the Leader and Directory and some variable control fields may be system supplied. 
   3.For Program for Cooperative Cataloging records only. 
   4.Supply a uniform title if it is known or can be readily inferred from the item being cataloged. 
   5.Title Variants: Use judgment in assessing each item and assign a complement of title variants which covers variations deemed important and coded as
     appropriate. The importance of title variant access information is intended to reflect individual cataloger's judgment and/or local institutional policy. 
   6.FOR DIRECT ACCESS FILES: Mandatory. Not applicable to remote access files. 
   7.Transcribe all series as found on an item in either a 490 or a 440 field. All traced series must be supported by a national level authority record. Untraced
     series need not be supported by a national level authority record. If a national level series authority record already exists for the series, follow the first tracing
     practice indicated on the record and record the series and tracing appropriately (i.e., in a 490 field, a 440 field or a 490/8XX pairing). 
   8.Only those notes that support identification of the item need be included. Criteria may vary from one item to another. Notes are not required to justify added
     entries. 
   9.FOR DIRECT ACCESS FILES: Make a "System requirements" note according to Chapter 9 of AACR2. FOR REMOTE ACCESS FILES: Make a
     "Mode of access" note according to Chapter 9 of AACR2. 
  10.Make a note for the edition statement if it is not taken from the source of the title proper. If using the Guidelines for Bibliographic Description of
     Interactive Multimedia, make a note according to the instructions in those guidelines. 
  11.FOR REMOTE ACCESS FILES: Make if material is available as a separate online file or physical document and that information is not already given in
     another note. 
  12.Minimally, supply a brief summary note if the content of the item is not obvious from the rest of the bibliographic record. 
  13.Supply as appropriate for collections, compilations, or for any multi-part item. 
  14.If appropriate, assign at least one or two subject access fields from an established thesaurus or subject heading system and/or genre/form list recognized by
     the USMARC Format. 
  15.Use judgment in assessing each item and assign a complement of added entries which cover primary relationships associated with a work (e.g., writer,
     programmer, principal investigator, producer, featured composer, animator and/or other artist). The inclusion and importance of added entries are intended to
     reflect individual cataloger's judgment and/or local institutional policy. 
  16.If applicable, assign at least one 856 field giving an electronic location of the item at the time of cataloging.

H 1520 Databases

BACKGROUND: A database is a collection of logically interrelated data stored together in one or more computerized files, usually created and managed by a database management system. The data are encoded, and each file is designed with a high-level structure for accepting, storing, and providing information on demand. Typically, there is a set of definitions for the database that describe its various data elements and a set of codes to identify each element. The database may include the database management software that created the file, or it may include only the data.

Prior to May 1996, the subdivision –Databases was regularly assigned as a form subdivision to any computer file other than executable software. In particular, it was often used in conjunction with other form subdivisions, for example –Directories–Databases, to indicate that a work was in electronic form. Since May 1996, the assignment of the subdivision –Databases has been limited according to the provisions of this instruction sheet.

This instruction sheet provides guidance on the assignment of subject headings to databases, to works about databases, to certain related materials, and on the assignment of the free-floating subdivision –Databases.

For guidance on the assignment of subjects to electronic serials, including serially issued databases, see H 1580.5.

 

1. The subdivision –Databases. Assign the free-floating form subdivision –Databases under subjects for a database as defined above. Examples:

Title: Eastern Europe business database [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a Database of economic, trade, and legal information on Eastern European countries. Includes a searchable factory, business, and product section.
  • 650 #0 $a Industries $z Europe, Eastern $x Databases.
  • 650 #0 $a Commercial products $z Europe, Eastern $x Databases.

Title: Food additives : toxicology, regularation, and properties [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a Commercial, CD-ROM version of the Priority-based Assessment of Food Additives (PAFA) database used by the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (FDA/CFSAN), the priomary repository for the toxicological effects of direct food additives. In addition to summaries of toxicological effects, the database contains regulatory information and property data for the compounds. Also includes the EAFUS database (Everything Added to Foods in the United States). The search software provides access to the 180 data fields for each of the 3,000 compounds, as well as the ability to save, export, print, or modify queries.
  • 650 #0 $a Food additives $x Analysis $x Databases.
  • 650 #0 $a Food additives $x Toxicology $x Databases.
  • 650 #0 $a Food additives $x Safety regulations $z United States $x Databases.

Title: Properties of organic solvents [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a Database of information on almost 600 organic solvents used in industry, academic research, and general commerce. In order to locate and select the proper solvent, users can specify desired physical properties falling into the following categories: identifying information such as names, synonyms, and various registry numbers; common physical properties; thermodynamic properties; transport properties; electrical properties; spectral data; and health and safety information. Includes search and retrieval software, online help, and the capability to export to printers and word processors.
  • 650 #0 $a Organic solvents $x Databases.

Title: County data base for new construction, 1980-87-95 [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a Furnishes data on construction permits, basic economic information, and demographic information for U.S. counties and county equivalents. Data are derived from U.S. Bureau of the Census tapes and are arranged in ASCII read files formatted for input in popular business software packages such as Lotus 1-2-3 and dBASE.
  • 650 #0 $a Building permits $z United States $x Statistics $x Databases.
  • 650 #0 $a Construction industry $z United States $x Statistics $x Databases.

Do not assign the subdivision –Databases under subjects for computer files that are essentially textual in nature, such as articles, conference proceedings, literary works, form letters. These texts may be keyboarded through a word-processing program, or they may be digitized images of a print or microform format. Assign only the subject(s) appropriate to the textual material. Examples:

Title: Legal issues surrounding the digital library [computer file] : proceedings of the Library of Congress Network Advsory Committee, December 3-5, 1995.

  • 520 ## $a Full text of a Network Advisory Committee meeting. Features discussion of First Amendment rights and the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders such as authors, publishers, and libraries. Includes meeting agenda, table of contents, list of attendees, and presentations.
  • 650 #0 $a Information superhighway $x Law and legislation $z United States $x Congresses.

Title: Nuremberg War Crimes Trials online [computer file] .

  • 520 ## $a Presents the Nuremberg war crimes trials in a fully searchable format. Includes 70 full text volumes comprising 18,928 bibliographic units, including 126,897 pages.
  • 650 #0 $a Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, Nuremberg, Germany, 1946-1949.
  • 650 #0 $a War Crimes Trials $z Germany $z Nuremberg.

Title: Monarch notes on CD-ROM [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a A multimedia edition of Monarch notes containing the full text of the entire series of over 200 publications. Includes spoken excerpts and pictures and drawings of the authors, characters, and settings, with software allowing the user to search by word or title.
  • 650 #0 $a Literature $x Stories, plots, etc.
  • 650 #0 $a Literature $x History and criticism.

Title: The CD ROM Judaic classics library [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a Original Biblical, Talmudic, Halachic and Aggadic texts regarding Jewish law, lore, and tradition in English and Hebrew. Contains search and retrieval software which links primary texts and commentaries, and allows for printing from the program or transporting to English or Hebrew word processors.
  • 650 #0 $a Rabbinical literature.
  • 650 #0 $a Jewish law.
  • 630 00 $a Bible. $p O.T. $x Commentaries.

Title: Paralegal letters [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a A collection of over 300 letters. Serves as a self-help guide to composing correspondence vital to supporting legal client matters. Updated on a periodic basis.
  • 650 #0 $a Legal correspondence $$z United States.
  • 650 #0 $a Forms (Law) $$z United States.

2. Cataloging from other than internal sources. Catalogers who do not or cannot load the file for cataloging purposes may make the determination that an item is a database based on these factors such as these:

  • the item presents itself as a database
  • accompanying information describes the file as containing specific data elements that would lend themselves to discrete coding
  • accompanying information describes the data elements and their coding and structure.

In case of doubt, do not assign the subdivision –Databases. Examples:

Title: Arctic fisheries database [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a Database of raw fisheries data collected over a period of 17 years regarding a number of environmental studies in the Arctic marine waters of Alaska as part of the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program. Also includes Arctic fisheries data retriever (version 2.00) software which can extract any subset of the database and create a file suitable for statistical analysis, and a Mapit (version 1.00) software package giving the user the ability to view sampling locations as displayed on a map of Alaska. The package is primarily intended for those involved with scientific research who have access to sophisticated PC-based statistical packages such as SAS, BMDP, SPSS, and StatGraphics.
  • 650 #0 $a Fisheries $z Alaska $x Statistics $x Databases.

Title: The national dairy database [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a Collection of dairy-related educational materials, lists, and software tools gathered from land-grant universities and dairy industry organizations. Includes over 700 documents with 3,750 pages of material on such topics as herd and animal health, facilities and equipment, business management, etc. Contains 46 software programs, 750 tables/charts, and an expertise database. Designed to assist producers, educators, consultants, veterinarians, the media, and others in the dairy industry.
  • 650 #0 $a Dairying.
  • 650 #0 $a Dairy farming.
  • 650 #0 $a Dairy product industry.

[Note: Although this item calls itself a database, the accompanying information describes this CD-ROM as consisting of over 3,000 pages of documents and research reports. There is no indication of distinct data elements that might be manipulated, nor is any software present which might manipulate the data. This computer file probably lacks the formal structure of a database and thus, the subdivision –Databases is not assigned.]

3. Special cases. Do not use the subdivision –Databases for the following types of works:

• Computer files that have the structure of and present themselves as reference-type works, such as directories, bibliographies, catalogs, dictionaries, encyclopedias, indexes, or other similar types. Assign instead the pertinent form headings or form subdivision under subjects. (If one of these computer files is also a database, do not further subdivide by –Databases and do not assign another subject for the database.) Examples:

Title: The American business disk [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a Business listings compiled from nationwide yellow pages.
  • 650 #0 $a Business enterprises $z United States $x Telephone directories.

Title: DESIS desertification bibliography [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a A referral database with 3,896 references, from 1967 to 1988, to conventional and nonconventional documents on desertification and its control. Indexed by author and subject and geographical descriptors. The database is accompanied by CD-ISIS database management software and is available as a CD-ISIS database or in ISO 2709 format. Its formatted output, titled World desertification bibliography, is provided in ASCII text.
  • 650 #0 $a Desertification $x Bibliography.

Title: Brody's medical dictionary [computer file].

520 ## $a Complete electronic medical dictionary with over 40,000 entries.

650 #0 $a Medicine $x Dictionaries.

Title: The new Grolier electronic encyclopedia [computer file].

  • 520 ## $a Searchable database containing all twenty-one volumes of the Academic American encyclopedia, drawings, photographs, and pictures. Includes electronic bookmark, split screen, and picture index features.
  • 650 #0 $a Electronic encyclopedias.

• Collections of non-textual data that are not specifically formatted and encoded for the purposes of manipulation of the data. Assign only the headings appropriate to contents of the files; do not assign the subdivision –Databases. Example:

Title: SoundWAV. Volume 1 [computer file] : the ultimate 16-bit stereo .WAV collection.

  • 520 ## $a Contains over 600 megabytes of digitized sounds in the .WAV files. Playable in sixteen-bix stereo, eight-bit stereo, and eight-bit mono.
  • 650 #0 $a Sounds.

4. Works with computer files as accompanying materials. When a work being cataloged is accompanied by a computer file that constitutes at least 20% of the overall work and when the contents of the computer file are judged to be significant, assign the appropriate topical headings for the computer file (cf. H 180, sec. 1). Use the above guidelines in determining when to use the subdivision –Databases following such headings. Examples:

Title: The economic geography of Fujian : a sourcebook.

[accompanying disks contain compressed locational data (15 files) and statistical data (49 files)]

  • 651 #0 $a Fukien Province (China) $x Economic conditions $x Statistics $x Databases.
  • 650 #0 $a Geographical positions $z China $z Fukien $x Databases.

5. Works about databases. To a work about databases in general, assign the appropriate topical headings, for example, Databases, or Relational databases. To a work about databases on a particular subject, assign as a topical subdivision the free-floating subdivision –Databases under the appropriate subject(s). To a work about a particular database, assign the name-title or uniform title for the database being discussed; in addition, assign, if appropriate, the same topical headings that were or would be assigned to an edition of the database itself. Examples:

Title: Skeletal Database Committee recommendations / Paleo-pathology Association.

Addendum: CD-ROMs that accompany materials in other formats

General

When a CD-ROM accompanies an item in another format (such as a book that has a CD-ROM with it), catalog the piece in-hand in its primary format and note the accompanying CD-ROM in the sub-field e of the collation area (300 field) to detail both the type of CD-ROM (optical, etc.) and the size of the CD-ROM in inches.

Note for copy cataloging

Follow what is found on the record. Do not add or expand the collation area (300 field). Refer poor quality member records and questionable entries to a librarian for a decision.

Note for original cataloging

 A system requirements note (538) field is not required and is not current LC practice. Adding a 538 is an option. However, any information obtained from the CD-ROM that may be helpful to the reader should be indicated in the note area with added entries given as needed.
