Offical Catalog
Undocumented Locations

The following locations were encountered by OCLC staff in the Official Catalog and did not appear on either the SKIP list or the PROCESS list. Consequently, OCLC staff skipped and flagged cards with these locations. When CMT staff members encounter such flagged cards they should consult this document to determine the appropriate action to be taken.

Location/Call Number Action to be taken by CMT staff Background
Uncat (any letter).
E.g., B uncat 3187 or L uncat 434
Search for a record in Orbis. If a matching record is found, the card can be discarded. If no record is found, file the card in the "undocumented locations" box. These are temporary cards, and most represent items already cataloged.

James T. Babb
JTB
Skip These represent books cataloged or to be cataloged for Beinecke Library.
Bonaparte Collection [No. 8845] File the card in the "undocumented locations" box. These cards probably represent books at Beinecke.
Connecticut and Historical MSS Room File the card in the "undocumented locations" box. Items represented by these cards appear to have been recataloged for SML Mss & Archives. Checking finding aids in Mss & Archives in the future should resolve any problems.
Connecticut Hall Skip This collection was dispersed.
Conservation Library File the card in the "undocumented locations" box. Conservation Library was an earlier name of the Forestry & Environmental Studies Library.

The Institute ceased to exist in 1965, and its functions were split between two university departments, the Dept. of East Asian Languages and Far Eastern Publications.

Yale University Library may have ceased to take responsibility for this collection at some point.
Institute of Human Relations Administr.

OR

Human Relations Area Files (HRAF)
Skip Yale University Library appears to have no responsibility for the books represented by these cards.

HRAF are all on microfiche in the microtext room.
