Serials: Ser Anals (Transfer and Cataloging)

There are many ser anal* titles which are bound together that have never been retrospectively converted and linked, or have only been partially converted and linked.

Consult with Lucy deGozzaldi when a ser anal titles needs to be transferred or cataloged.

Lucy will do the following:

1. Leave all analink* monographic records on the system. She will not attempt to link the monographic records to the correct ser add# records or delete them.

2. She will link items records for each volume to the correct ser add record, when the title is to be transferred to the Five College Repository. Otherwise, she will only link on demand.

3. If there is no ser add record, she will find and download (overlay) one from OCLC with local holdings on it, if the record exists.

4. Any ser anals going to the Five College Repository will have the Repository OWN code and ownership symbol in OCLC. Lucy will change those codes on any separate monographic records and the serial record.

5. Any ser anals staying at UMass will have the following note in the HOL (holdings) record:

590 “If transferred give to Lucy deGozzaldi to change own codes on monographic records.”

*Ser anals, or analyzed serials, are intended to be published indefinitely; assigned one call number, but usually each volume deals with one topic and warrants an author/title entry in the online catalog. All volumes sit together on shelf. Problems arise when ser anals are bound together. We sometimes refer to bound together ser anals as: analinks. This document addresses linking, cataloging, retrospective conversion, and transfer problems with analinks, not ser anals that are not bound together.

#Ser adds , one type of serial+, are intended to be published indefinitely; assigned one call number, and has only one bibliographic record, to which all issues are added and linked.

serial+ A serial is the broad term we use for publications intended to be published indefinitely, until it ceases publication, is merged with another title, or the title changes. A periodical is a serial publication that is published more than once per year, with articles published by different authors. In this Library the term “serial” (not ser add) refers to publications that are published annually or less frequently and may or may not have separate articles. (For example, consider an annual or even semiannual index, which does not contain separate articles, to be a serial).
