Cataloging Electronic Documents Presented by Qin Tang Mn/DOT Library Phone: June 11, 2001 Special Libraries Association
Mn/DOT Library 5 professional librarians & 4 support staff titles cataloged + some backlog 400 active periodicals OCLC member library Member of MnSCU/PALS consortium Migration from PALS to Ex Libris ALEPH 500 system expected in 2003
Topics of Discussion Definitions Classification Single vs. separate record What do you Catalog? Different approaches How do you catalog? Unique MARC fields Standards and guidelines
Electronic Resources Web resources (home pages, electronic documents, electronic serials, online systems and services, etc.) discussion lists (AUTOCAT) FTP Telnet CD-ROMs And much more
Computer Files AACR2R definition: A file (data and/or programs) encoded for manipulation by a computer. The file may be stored on or contained in carriers accessed either directly or remotely. Accessed directly (tangible): - Computer disks - CD-ROMs Accessed remotely (intangible): - LAN or other network - Internet resources
Common Characteristics of Electronic Documents Content is fixed and unchanging Presence of a single date of publication or copyright Presence of a fixed edition statement Existence of a print counterpart
Classification Whether or not to assign classification numbers to Internet resources is a local decision. Advantages of assigning a classification number include: - Allow to search or browse by the classification number - More access points - Useful for collection development - To be included in reports arranged by classification number, such as an accession list or subject bibliography You may wish to establish a holding library or location code for public display purposes.
Single vs. Separate Record When you have the print original in your library and it is also available in electronic format: Single record approach (more common): Catalog the print original and add 006, 007, 530 & 856 to the record for print version Separate record approach: Catalog the print original and the electronic version separately

What Do You Catalog? When you dont have the print original: Catalog the electronic version (more common) Catalog the printouts of the electronic version
Cataloging Electronic Version of a Print Original - LC Practice If the content in the electronic version is the same as in the print original, treat the electronic version as reproduction of the original and use the same approach as cataloging microform reproduction Reproduction is generally a mechanical rather than intellectual process For LC rule interpretation, see Cataloging Service Bulletin, no.89, summer 2000 (p.12-14) under 1.11A. "Facsimiles, photocopies, and other reproductions. [Rev.] )
Electronic Reproduction Add the following fields to the print record: 006 additional material characteristics 007 physical description fixed fields applicable to the reproduction 245 $h [computer file] 533 electronic reproduction note with details relating to the reproduction and its publication/availability. Use 856 to display the URL 776 additional physical form entry to link the computer file record to the original print record

Cataloging Printouts of Electronic Documents If the electronic document is a reproduction of the print original: –Use the record for the print original and add a 590 local note indicating that your copy is a printout of the electronic version, add 530 and 856 fields If the electronic document is available only online: –Catalog the electronic document and add a 590 local note indicating that your library has a printout of the electronic version, or –Catalog the printout as reproduction of the electronic resource and add a 533 reproduction note

Fixed Field : 008 Type of record code: a for language/textual material Type of record code: m for computer file is restricted to four specific categories of electronic resources: ¶Computer software (including programs, games) ·Numeric data ¸Computer-oriented multimedia ¹Online systems or services Form of item code: s for electronic item intended for manipulation by a computer. May reside in a carrier accessed either directly or remotely
Additional Material Characteristics: 006 Type of record m = computer file Type of computer file d = document è 006 m d
Physical Description: 007 Category of material: "c = computer file Specific material designation: "r" = remote access Color: a = A single color other than black b = black-and-white "c" = multicolored Physical dimensions: "n" = not applicable Sound: blank = no sound (silent) a = sound u = unknown è 007 c $b r $d c $e n
General Material Designation (GMD): 245 $h AACR2R: $h [computer file] Change to [electronic resource] is expected in the next AACR2R/chapter 9 revision later this year ISBD(ER): $h [electronic resource] Other GMDs may be used in your local system if desired.
Computer File Characteristics: 256 AACR2R has limited options: –computer data –computer program(s) –computer data and program(s) ISBD(ER) has an expanded, hierarchical and more complete list of resource designations [see ISBE(ER) website] è 256 computer text data (1 file : 908 kb).
Physical Description: 300 Not applicable to remote access computer files, therefore not present in records for Internet resources.
