notes from June 6 2000 e-cat comm. meeting

announcements:

1. EBSCO load

Nice notes from Joan Swanekamp and Ann Okerson on a job well-done. No comments on the records from anyone else. [I checked the ftp file at EBSCO and the May version of the set is there. ITS will load those soon.]

2. C-H load

No date on LSO priority yet. Have asked to be listed. Will ask again. Spec is ready for discussion with LSO. Need to double -check the URLs to be sure they are right.

3. Beacom has made a check list for tracking load projects. It is in Access. It needs more work.

4. The yul,int loc code now translates into "Internet" in the OPAC. We have not acted yet on changing the call number to "Online Resource". We need to ask library staff if they are using the co=electronic text search in their work, teaching, or Web pages. We need to work out how we'll change almost 5000 records and how and when to change the loader for the EBSCO records.

TOPICS

=> Cat. policies and procedures for e-monograhs.

Tony Oddo reported on the work of the sub-group. They've drafted a record template. They are discussing the distinction between and e-reproduction and an e-edition. They are looking at possibly having separate policies for updating resources (not monos, not serials). They are looking at using PCC core record standards for books and computer files so that our records are PCC core compliant.

Big issues are

1. distinction between e-reproductions and e-editions

2. use of pseudo uniform title in 246 (construct a title by adding "Online" to the title proper; place in the 246 to make it show in the indexes. Is this a good or a bad idea?

3. updating materials: what do we do?

=> Relation of catalog and Web resources pointed to from YUL selector Web pages

The group likes the idea of cataloging the YUL research guide or selector pages as an alternative to cataloging everything on the selector's pages.

1. We need to develop a template or pattern for these pages.

2. derive Dublin Core html from CORC and add the DC html to the Web page we have cataloged

3. discuss further with selectors and with Web Advisory Group and Web folk at Yale Library.

What do you all think?

=> Kim's topics

1. remote e-stuff with books or the case of the missing notes & bibliography.

Kim mentioned the case of _The nothing that is_, the Oxford U Press book with note and biblio on the Web instead of in the book. How do we handle these re the catalog? Answer: this book has had the URL and note added to its bibl. record in Orbis. This kind of handling will not be standard practice. Copy from LC must have the URL in it. Publisher needs to tell LC via CIP process about the URL and remote access notes & biblio.

2. metadata

Should our group be concerned with metadata outside of the catalog? Various e-projects at Yale are creating metadata, is that something the e-cat comm. group should be involved with. Answer. yes and no. Our focus is the catalog. Other groups in particular the DIIS sub comm. on metadata are more appropriate forums for those issues. But our group should be kept informed of developments with regard to other forms of metadata. See the above project with dc html as a case in point.

3. The e-resources management page

What do we want to do with this page? What comments or ideas do we have? Take a look, think about it and answer. http://www.library.yale.edu/ecollections/eresmanage.html

=> joint meeting of e-cat comm and CoDGeR

possible dates are July 18, Aug 15, and Aug. 29.

Let's do it July 18th. CoDGeR meets at 1:30 pm, I think.

=> E-cat comm. next meeting is Aug. 29th. Enjoy!
