Cataloging and Classifying Scores

Scores are a special breed of monograph, and require their own special cataloging procedures.

Processing

Each score with parts should have a processing flag with it. Most main scores will be put in a pam binder and the accompanying parts will go in an envelope in the pam binder with the score. If the pages of the main score are unstapled, it should go into the envelope with the parts in a pam binder.  Main scores will only not go in a pam binder if it is too thick to fit.  Parts will ALWAYS go in an envelope in a pam binder, so they can be taken out and used individually regardless of how the main score is treated.

            See example of processing flag: It is for a main score with 3 parts which are 4 pages each.  The main score will be put into a pam binder and the parts will be put into an envelope which is bound into the same pam binder.  The pam binder will need to have a title label made for the cover, using an Avery 5164 label. The label needs to include the following :           

            Title (all caps)

            Composer

Clip the flag, label, spine labels, and barcode to the parts before sending them to Mending for pam binder construction.
