Cataloging ETL Textbooks

The ETL receives textbooks as large sets, and they require special cataloging procedures.

  1. COMPOSING HOLDINGS STATEMENTS:  Textual holdings statements for sets are composed of the main set item(s) followed by elements describing the secondary bibliographic items.  The elements are separated by a + sign.  Use bibliographic information to the extent available, with the following preferences:
  1. Basic terms of the units as given in the bib record 300 field.
  2. Set description given in the 505 field.
  3. Descriptions derived from individual items.
  4. When creating the holdings element for the MAIN item, use the term found on the piece (e.g., student edition, teacher’s edition) ONLY IF the term appears on the piece and is noted in the description of the bibliographic record.  If the item is not explicitly identified as such., use the basic v. designation instead:
  1. 1 v. + other items (‘student ed.’ not stated in record or on item)
  2. 1 student ed. + other items  (record or item states ‘student ed.’)
  3. 3 v. <gr.6-8> + other items (‘student ed.’ not stated in record or on item)
  4. 3 student eds. <gr.6-8> + other items (record or item states ‘student ed.’)
