Table of Contents (TOC) Project for Multi-volume Sets Hee-sook Shin Columbia University
Introduction Limited space for housing its collection Low-use materials, Multi-volume sets are sent to an offsite location Analytic records are not created Guangxu Xuantong liang chao hang yu dang Tanabe Seiko zenshu Hanguk minsokhak yongu nonjo Materials are neither browseable nor directly accessible Users have difficulty finding materials that are offsite TOC Project is developed to provide online access to the TOC of the materials
Procedure 1. The Table of Contents for each volume is scanned using Adobe Professional software. The scanned image is modified, such as cropping, and saved into C drive. The pdf file is named with (bib. no.barcode.sort-key)
Procedure 2. When pdf files are created, the files are then uploaded onto the library server using the TOC process workflow for scanned tables of contents (This is programmed by the IT department at CU). While processing this step, the system generates a item id and TOC link, and a Request from offsite link will be generated when these books are sent to offsite.
Procedure 3. For the last step, the bibliographic record in our local system is opened and the 856 field is added in which the TOC link appears on the bib. record. The 856 is also added in RLIN record. (e.g. 856 41 $3 Table of Contents $u http://www.columbia.edu/cgi-bin/cul/toc.pl?4770466)
