Re: Local Holdings for multiformat holdings Steven C Shadle 29 Nov 2006 20:40 UTC

Hmmmm, I didn't think an OCLC record would "respresent" (as in describe) multiple formats.  Typically the print version record will have notes about other physical formats (and possibly a URL), but really the record should be describing a specific version/format.  I'd be curious to get a record number.

As to how you should represent holdings in OCLC when locally you've attached multiple formats to a print version record (which is a common practice), sorry can't be any help there.  I'm not sure whether OCLC will consider it kosher to have a LHR attached that has a format (007) different from the format of the bib record.  We'll have the same question when we start adding LHRs to OCLC.  I didn't see anything at <> that specifically addressed your question, but I also didn't look at every resource there.
