The Masha Kabakow Rudman Children's Literature Collection consists of two categories of materials: 1) professional literature relating to children’s books; and 2) the children’s books themselves.
For both categories, search the Aleph catalog to determine if UMass already owns a copy of the title being cataloged. If so, catalog as a Departmental Duplicate (D/D) with the appropriate 099, 690 and 710 fields (see below). Then create a separate holdings and item record:
The sublibrary code is UMDUB The collection code – URUD Code the Item Statistic field as 02 for Gift.
If UMass does not already own a copy, search OCLC and download any appropriate record found into Aleph. (If an original record is needed, the book can be passed on to Kay Dion.)
Add any 099, 690 and 710 fields as appropriate (see individual categories below). Then add: 928 AUTHORITY 930 OCLC (unless original record) 910 [cataloger's initials/date]
In the Holdings/Item record: The sublibrary code is UMDUB The collection code is URUD Code the Item Statistic field as 02 for Gift.
Create an item record.
Use LC classification, as well as LC subject headings and standard cataloging. Add a 690 field: 690__Rudman Collection |x Professional Books Add as a 710 field: 710 2_ Masha Kabakow Rudman Issues in Children's Literature Collection
Add the 910, 928 and 930 fields as above.
End processing is standard: label, barcode, plate, target, stamp. Discard any book jackets.
Use Ms. Rudman’s own classification as written on the flyleaf of each book, in an 099 field (local call no.). See Masha Rudman Childrens Collection Codes for instructions on using these codes in the appropriate 099 and 690 fields.
NOTE: If there are two general categories marked on the flyleaf (i.e., GEN and M/F), go with the first category code for the call number. If there is an added copy (paperback or hardcover), use the second category code for the call number. If there are no added copies, add separate 690 fields to the bib record for each category code. If you have any questions about these, please check with Kay Dion.
Add as a 710 field: 710 2_ Masha Kabakow Rudman Issues in Children's Literature Collection. Add the appropriate 910, 928 and 930 fields as above.
Otherwise, catalog as normal for a children’s book (except collection is URUD)
Special Children's authors
There are three specific authors whose works receive a specialized 099 call number format. These authors are Joseph Bruchac, Jacqueline Woodson and Jane Yolen.
In the case of each author, the 099 should read:
The [title] should be the first one or two words of the title itself. For instance, Yolen's work “Dream Weaver” would get the [title] Dream.
There is no need to insert a special 690 field. Use the appropriate code(s) from the book's flyleaf, as instructed above, for a standard 690 field.
End processing of all children's books: Retain dust jackets, apply barcode over the dust jackets, and place on truck for special processing of the Rudman Collection children’s books. Dust jackets will be wrapped in mylar covers. Otherwise, label, plate, target, and stamp as usual; there are no gift plates.
