Re: Title changes and Voyager processes Dickie, Betty 02 Apr 2004 13:43 UTC

We do things a bit differently.  Once the title change is confirmed, the
serials staff starts a new p.o. with notes linking to former p.o. From the
p.o. we put in a short bib record. We close the check-in record and start a
new one with pattern. When all this is done, the journal goes to cataloging
for the full bib record and links to old title.  At out library, that takes
about 24 hours and it's on the shelf.

Subject: [SERIALST] Title changes and Voyager processes

This is a question for those using the Voyager system.
We are wanting to make our processes as efficient as possible (don't
we all!)
and title changes are under the spotlight.

The Voyager manual is very brief on the subject and as we have only
been live since January we are rather green.
This is what we are planning to do and I'd appreciate your comments
or suggestions.

1. Serial issue arrives at check-in and a change of title is noticed
2. They pass it to cataloguing staff to determine whether it is a
title change according to AACR rules.
3. If new, then cataloguing staff would close our holdings, enter 780
& 785 linking tags and make a new bib. record and MFHD for the new
4. When it comes back to serials they close the component pattern and
'cancel' the line item
5. Serials adds a new line on the same PO and links it to the new
bib. record, then creates a new component and selects a pattern.

Many thanks
