CATALOG MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES FOR RECORDS
MATERIAL THAT IS TRANSFERRED
Transferring Unit Responsibilities
The unit initiating the transfer is responsible for updating existing ORBIS
records. Do not inform the Catalog Management Team of transferred items.
MFHD Record: Replace the existing ORBIS location code with the new location code to which the copy is transferred. The transferring unit will not add a new MFHD for the changed location. Add a subfield x to 852 and record the following information: 1) Transf. from 2) old location; 3) processing unit/individual initials 4) processing date in the format of MM/YYYY.
