ETD Cataloging

This guide includes an overview of the crosswalk to MARC as well as cataloging procedures for student assistants and ETD supervisors.


OSU follows RDA, OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards and local practices for creating K level cataloging records for theses and dissertations.  The records are generated using an XML to MARC crosswalk procedure (see [crosswalk-procedure <hyperlink>]) and then reviewed and edited by the   metadata team using OCLC Connexion.  After review, the records are batch loaded to OCLC and imported into Voyager.
