Task Force on Authority Control Implications : Records Sent/Not Sent to LTI
The TFACI group.
Acquisitions records, reserves records, withdrawn/discard records, and other local processing records present special issues for the conversion, and for on-going maintenance of authority and bibliographic records.
- Should any types of records be excluded from the files sent to LTI?
- Develop a list of Innopac codes which will specifically identify any records to be excluded.
The group determined that the following criteria be used to select records from our INNOPAC database to be sent to LTI. This selection criteria is in effect for both the initial clean-up and all ongoing clean-up work.
|MAT TYPE INCLUDED|
|a||COMP PT MONO|
|b||COMP PT SER|
|MAT TYPE EXCLUDED|
|f||ON THE FLY|
|n||NOT IN INNOPAC|
|e||EARLY AM IMP|
|BIB STATUS INCLUDED|
|z||UPLOAD TO RLIN|
|BIB STATUS EXCLUDED|
|y||NOT IN INNO|
Acquisitions records excluded
Any record whose status was "On order" or "In process"
The large number of records in our Innopac database currently marked withdrawn or discarded led the group to recall the Item Record Task Force report. That report states "In the future, if the number of withdrawn/discard records in the Innopac database becomes unwieldy, we might consider wholesale deletion of these records." (IRTF pg. 68) The TFACI group feels that this time has come and recommends that CSG convene a group to look at this question.
