We had a discussion on MARC Holdings Demo Draft, specifically, what could be added and edited from the draft. MHLD being the local designation used by Yale, it was decided that MFHD (Marc Format for Holdings Data) will now replace MHLD as the acronym of choice to unify it with national standards.
A few corrections and alterations were made on the draft.
If we set up a publication pattern, can the system add ensuing vols automatically without data entry ?
The discussion merged with the Serial Demo Check-in concerns as it related to the new issues checked in and how they displayed in the MARC holdings.
The Add/Move/Delete/Suppress function was raised for MARC holdings. We need to have Demos for how to Delete/Remove information from the holdings. Also need a Demo for transferring data from one record to another.
Compression display questions:
The Discussion moved on to the Binding/Labeling Demo Draft
It was underscored that we use line breaks for call number labels. There are many call number formatting differences used on printed labels among the various Yale libraries, and we would want the labelling generating system to be able to handle these differences.
The Discussion moved on to the Title Changes Demo Draft.
Next weeks meeting has been canceled. Our next meeting is scheduled for Sept.8.
