5 connecting you with information, support and your community External Issues Lower quality records Classification problems Bad processing

6 connecting you with information, support and your community The Process of Checking Every book was checked against the bibliographic record. Each bibliographic record was printed out, and changes to the record were noted. Changes were transcribed into a spreadsheet, so that patterns could be tracked through the trial. Books were then sent to Collections Management to be made available and shelved or relabelled (if neccessary).

7 connecting you with information, support and your community Criteria for Checking Is the classmark correct? Does the record need significant corrections? –Right title (including series) / authors –Right information about book (numbers) –Subject headings, Mesh heading if possible Other issues: 856, 020, 505, 504, 440 fields. Processing: label over edition or volume, title. Item problems: multiple locations and statuses within individual bibliographic records.
