E-resource record quality checklist

Evaluation of e-resources is done through a form. Archived evaluations and the current form can be found on Github. Specific information for metadata title sets can be found on our shared network drive. All records should follow the RDA standard and follow our Five Colleges Shared Cataloging Best Practices. For help, contact metadatahelp@umass.libanswers.com
