Holistic Cataloguing or, The Fundamental Interconnectedness of All Things Céline Carty with apologies to Douglas Adams
The Great Space Crisis of 2014 NB. Not actual footage. And not an actual crisis
“The term ‘holistic’ refers to my conviction that what we are concerned with here is the fundamental interconnectedness of all things” Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency Douglas Adams
Neatly defined project
Documentation Deadlines Face-to-face communication
Project brief 1. Project name 2. Project objective 3. Deliverables 4. Scope 5. Milestones 6. Project team Based on Tito Sierra’s project one-pager Really useful stuff from the PM4Lib workshop materials!
Fast Track non-catalogued workflows
Take records from a trusted* source and then do no local checking/editing
* Trusted means we know the records will match our requirements for encoding, authorised access points, subject headings and (maybe) classification. We can then use automated batch processes to edit them in predictable ways.
Ta da! the magic of macros
Project objective: Establish a workflow for entering 3-figure classmarks using Voyager, with no need for class catalogues for open shelf monographs Entering project
Focus on communication & Use a pilot as part of change process & Speak to everyone (yes, everyone)
