1 SALALM 2010 Cataloging & Bibliographic Technology Subcommittee Angela J. Kinney Chief, African, Latin American & Western European Division, Library of Congress

2 Library of Congress Shelf-Ready Pilot Projects Monographic projects Casalini Libri: Italy Kinokuniya: Japan Garcia Cambeiro: Argentina Smaller scale project with Korean vendor

3 What is Shelf-Ready Cataloging? Whole item cataloging descriptive and subject cataloging completion of call number holdings/item records tables of contents Physical processing call number labeling item and lccn barcodes security strips, edge stamps shipping

4 Why are libraries seeking shelf-ready cataloging from vendors? Shortage of resources to keep abreast with processing of foreign imprints Price of cataloging less expensive if done from start to finish by one person with language skills Processing expedited because books go to shelf much faster than usual Patrons benefit from faster access to rich resources available from vendors Fuller records with call numbers and subject headings

5 Garcia Cambeiro Shelf-Ready Cataloging Project LC and Garcia Cambeiro initiate first agreement (2008) LC provided cataloging training and review Garcia Cambeiro provided LC core level records LC licenses records (2009) All records distributed by LC

6 Training Two weeks onsite instruction in all aspects of cataloging Cataloging documentation: AACR2, DCM, RIs, SCM, LCSH, LCC Accounts for Catalogers’ Desktop and Classification Web Review of Garcia Cambeiro’s cataloging records remotely by LC LC does authority control per enhanced MLC and HR/IR

7 What Influences Price Per Record improving proficiency of processing enhancements to technology creating conglomerate of customers independence in cataloging not providing series control

8 Resources needed for shelf-ready projects Staffing to provide training and review Resources to do cataloging: technology and staff Efficient workflow

9 Challenges For Garcia Cambeiro Remote access (working outside LC’s firewall) Training new staff to provide cataloging Training anticipated if LC adopts RDA For Library of Congress Remote review of cataloging records Resources needed to have vendor shelf- ready and independent in cataloging
