Union Catalog Committee Meeting Agenda and notes March 25, 2015

  • Welcome to Jamie as Chair
  • Welcome to new members of the committee
  • Updating marmot cataloging standards
    • Tammy has added cataloging standards to http://info.marmot.org Categories- >Sierra->Resources o Mary Katherine still has some revisions to incorporate
    • Emily (Bud Werner) – asked for additional information on Leader and fixed fields, 007, 008 (eg.: Prospector non-contributing)
  • Seed library cataloging standards
    • Subcommittee: Emily (Bud Werner), Gail (Basalt), Sarah (Summit), Mary (ASU)
    • Bib records are not going to be shared – Basalt records are unique to Basalt. Bud Werner’s bibs are more generic, but it makes the most sense that bib records are not shared. We don’t want to have bibs with the same numbers in these marc tags 001, 020, 024 and none of these records currently being used for seeds have these fields.
    • Subcommittee members will document their procedures to share with members who may be interested in starting a seed library
