-Three times a year (February, May, September), the Graduate Records ​Office receives dissertations and theses submitted for a Doctoral or Master’s degree. These submissions are normally in electronic form, but the GRO occasionally allows exceptions for paper copies. Once these paper dissertations and theses are reviewed and approved, the Grad Office forwards one copy of each dissertation to ProQuest for microfilming then one copy of each dissertation and two copies of each thesis to the library’s Thesis Cataloger. These paper copies are accompanied by “packing list” printouts containing information for each work; the same list is emailed to the Thesis Cataloger. One copy of each work is assigned to the Main or Science library and a second copy to the Five College Depository. Once ProQuest is finished microfilming each work they receive, the paper copy is sent to the library’s Thesis Cataloger. (It could be several months before the copy is received, so it is imperative that the cataloger keeps track of all copies.)+Three times a year (February, May, September), the Office ​of Degree Requirements of the Graduate School of UMass receives dissertations and theses submitted for a Doctoral or Master’s degree.

-1) The Thesis Cataloger creates and prints out an Excel worksheet containing the graduate program, degree, and date of birth for each author as provided by the GRO. This worksheet is also used to track the progress of each dissertation and thesis as it is cataloged, uploaded to OCLCexported to ALEPH, the paper copies received from ProQuest, and said copies sent to the bindery. ​+1) The Thesis Cataloger creates and prints out an Excel worksheet containing the graduate program, degree, and date of birth for each author as provided by the Graduate Office. This worksheet is also used to track the progress of each dissertation and thesis as it is cataloged, ​any embargo status noted, the bibliographic record ​uploaded to OCLC and exported to ALEPH, the paper copies received from ProQuest, and said copies sent to the bindery. ​
  
 2) A Library of Congress call number is assigned to each author using the Cutter-Sanborn author table. The library’s OPAC is checked to ensure there are no duplicate call numbers. The appropriate format for each call number is LD3234.M67 <year of degree awarded> .<author cutter> for Doctorals, LD3234.M268 <year of degree awarded> .<author cutter> for Masters. ​ (Example: LD 3234.M267 2009 D1235) 2) A Library of Congress call number is assigned to each author using the Cutter-Sanborn author table.

 3) OCLC’s authority file, author files and the UMass library'​s OPAC are searched for any variant forms of name. If there is a previously established form of name in OCLC or in the OPAC, it may take precedence over any form of name submitted by the Graduate Office. If necessary, authority records are created or updated in OCLC, particularly in the case of married vs. unmarried surnames. 3) OCLC’s authority file, author files and the UMass library'​s OPAC are searched for any variant forms of name.

-4) Cataloging records are created in Connexion for each work using a previously created Constant Data template for monographic bibliographical records. ​ The paper copies are then distributed to the Cat & Proc professional catalogers for assignment of subject headings. The catalogers directly add these headings to the Connexion cataloging files; this is the only work they do associated with the dissertations and theses.  The Thesis Cataloger takes care everything else+4) Cataloging records are created in Connexion for each work using a previously created Constant Data template for monographic bibliographical records. ​ The paper copies are then distributed to the Library'​s ​professional catalogers for assignment of subject headings.

 + If any of the paper copies have had an embargo placed on them, the copies are to be put aside and held at the Thesis Cataloger'​s desk. Temporary records may be placed in Aleph with the fields for author, title, pagination, statement of responsibility,​ 502 and 690 fields, plus a 910 field stating TEMP and the cataloger'​s initials and the date. Add a  STA field stating "​SUPPRESSED"​ to the bib record. Create an Item record and add an Internal Note as to why the work has been suppressed. Create a Holdings record with a STA field stating "​SUPPRESSED"​ and a 952 field, subfield |z, stating the date the embargo will be lifted (if known) or simply that the work has been embargoed
  
 6) Item and holdings records are created for each bibliographic copy, along with any bindery information. One bibliographic record is established for the Main ADM library (UM) and another bibliographic record established for the Depository ADM library (DP). 6) Item and holdings records are created for each bibliographic copy, along with any bindery information.
