18 <para>Hello Edel,</para>\r
19 <para>As Chair of the Sitka Cataloguing Working Group I am pleased to submit our Sitka\r
20 Cataloguing Policy document to you. At our July 23, 2009 meeting the Cataloguing Working\r
21 Group recommended unanimously that this document was ready to be submitted to the\r
22 Board.</para>\r
24 <para>The purpose of this document is to support Sitka consortia libraries in their\r
25 commitment to creating a database of high-quality bibliographic records for collective\r
26 use. These bibliographic records are the shared property of the BC Libraries Cooperative\r
27 regardless of the holdings attached. Maintaining the quality and integrity of each\r
28 bibliographic record is an interest and a responsibility we all share. Our\r
29 recommendation to the Board is that this Sitka Cataloguing Policy document be used by\r
30 Sitka consortia libraries as their working document for cataloguing in the Sitka\r
31 database.</para>\r
33 <para>I also want to bring to your attention that the Cataloguing Working Group is currently\r
34 exploring options for a mentoring program. We would like to include the Board’s input in\r
35 this discussion of a mentoring program for Evergreen cataloguers with a dual nature of\r

92 <title>Purpose</title>\r
93 </info>\r
95 <para>Sitka consortia libraries are committed to creating a database of high-quality\r
96 bibliographic records for collective use. These bibliographic records are the shared\r
97 property of the British Columbia Libraries Cooperative regardless of the holdings\r
98 attached. It does not matter which library “created” the record, who transferred it into\r
99 the database, or who has edited it since. Maintaining the quality and integrity of each\r
100 bibliographic record is an interest and a responsibility we all share.</para>\r
102 <para>With recommendations from the Sitka Cataloguing Working Group, the BC Libraries\r
103 Cooperative sets standards for these records. This Cataloguing Policy is reflected in\r
104 the training provided by the Sitka Support Team and supplemented by Sitka Evergreen User\r
105 Documentation located at <link\r
106 xlink:href="http://docs.sitka.bclibraries.ca/Sitka/current/html/"\r
107 xlink:title="http://docs.sitka.bclibraries.ca/Sitka/current/html/"\r
108 >http://docs.sitka.bclibraries.ca/Sitka/current/html/</link>.</para>\r
110 <para>Member libraries that repeatedly struggle to comply with established policies and\r
111 procedures may be required to undertake further training and/or a mentoring period.\r
112 Cataloguing privileges may be suspended during this process. If a library continues to\r
113 fail to meet cataloguing standards, cataloguing rights may be revoked.</para>\r

118 <info>\r
119 <title>Administration</title>\r
120 </info>\r
122 <para>The goal within the Sitka database is to create one master MARC record for each\r
123 discrete bibliographic title to which all member libraries will add their respective\r
124 holdings. In this shared environment, it is essential that library staff or volunteers\r
125 who perform cataloguing work have the skills and training required to ensure adherence\r
126 to cataloguing standards.</para>\r
128 <para>As errors in cataloguing have the potential to affect staff and public access across\r
129 the consortium, four skill levels have been designated so that only staff with\r
130 sufficient skills and training may perform specific tasks. Once a member library has\r
131 received cataloguing training as part of their migration to Evergreen, the Sitka Support\r
132 Team, in consultation with the Chief Librarian at each member library, will identify\r
133 staff members who are authorized to perform tasks at each level.</para>\r
a27e4ac1 135 <simplesect xml:id="policy-who-does-what">\r
136 <title>Who Does What?</title>\r
138 <para>Generally, tasks performed by staff or volunteers designated at the Basic or\r
139 Intermediate levels have fewer implications for errors across the consortium. Tasks\r
140 performed by staff or volunteers at the Advanced and Expert level have more\r
141 significant potential impact for errors and require a more in-depth knowledge of\r
142 cataloguing standards and policies.</para>\r

277 <para>For member libraries, there are many benefits to sharing a database of high-quality\r
278 bibliographic records for collective use. Staff will learn to think consortially, with\r
279 the resources of several libraries at their disposal instead of relying on the local\r
280 technical services staff alone. Cataloguing workflows will change, with Sitka being the\r
281 primary source of copy cataloguing for many libraries.</para>\r
283 <para>Staff should always check the Sitka database first before searching Z39.50 targets for\r
284 bibliographic records.</para>\r
286 <para>In order to ensure the integrity of this shared database, the procedures outlined in\r
287 this section must be followed by all staff and volunteers who perform cataloguing tasks\r
288 in Evergreen. The Chief Librarian at each member library is responsible for ensuring\r
289 that staff and volunteers follow these procedures as they apply to their designated\r
290 Skill Level.</para>\r

863 <para>An Evergreen serials module is currently in development. Until it is\r
864 implemented, each member library will maintain its own bibliographic records\r

876 “best” record, the Cataloguing Working Group will review all requests before\r

895 <para>What is the best way to enter “on order” records?</para>\r
896 </question>\r
897 <answer>\r
898 <para>The best method is to search the Sitka database for a match first and add\r
899 a dummy barcode in the holdings of the existing record, and set the status\r
900 to “on order”. If there is no match in the Sitka database, search for a\r
901 record within Z39.50 targets, import it into Evergreen and add a dummy\r
902 barcode in the holdings of the record, and set the status to “on\r

913 <para>If an item has a different binding, but is nearly identical in content and\r
914 pagination, and if copies originate from the same publisher, then the record\r
915 may be considered a match. The only additional action besides adding ISBN is\r
916 to add an edition statement in parentheses to the 020 -ISBN field, e.g.\r
917 paperback, library binding, etc. if different from the bibliographic\r
918 record’s edition statement.</para>\r
