BIBLIOGRAPHIC SERVICES MONTHLY REPORT for February 2001

Bibliographic Services catalogued 2,919 titles in February 2001.

CATALOGUE ENHANCEMENT

On January 29 we received notification that the URLs for the Elsevier electronic journals had been changed and as a result our access to these ejournals through Yorkline ceased to work. I would like to thank Rita Carcasole and Karen Cassel who worked very hard to change over 1000 URLs in a few days. Using the Keyboard Express software, a macro was created and mapped to their keyboard to assist Karen and Rita in this task.

Multivolume Clean-up Project: Linda Gamble and Linda Smith corrected 33 titles and 296 volumes.

THE TECHNICAL SERVICES WEB RESOURCES PAGE

UPDATE

The document outlining our procedures for processing non sound cd-roms as accompanying material has been revised to include instructions on what to do if the cd-rom has a different title from that of the book.

The document outlining our procedures for cataloguing electronic resources has been updated to correct the example outlining the form of the 530 note for treating added electronic copies to print records

NEW LINKS

Several new cataloguing memos have been added to the Cataloguing Memos page

COMPUTING

Rita Carcasole’s workstation was upgraded to Windows 2000 Professional during February. I would like to thank LCS and in particular Martin Alexander for his good work during the installation and follow-up process. Martin’s care and attention made the upgrade process a smooth transition.
