Serial Holdings

This course provides the basic principles of creating holdings records
and publication patterns with a focus on serials. All materials are
based on the MARC 21 Format for Holdings Data (MFHD) and ANSI/NISO
Z39.71--1999. The course includes background information on why holdings
are important and a brief description of the development of the
standards and instructions and exercises on creating formatted and free
text holdings and publication patterns. The instructions and exercises
are system-neutral but the course includes time for discussion of local
system implementation.

The course is designed as a one and a half day (10.5 hours) session. It
is strongly recommended that 1 1/2 to 2 days be given to allow ample
time for exercises and discussion, due to the nature of the course
materials. The second half day includes extra time for exercises,
system-implementation discussion, and problem solving. The course
includes several optional sessions that can be omitted if a one-day
workshop is to be given.


Cataloging Basics - Part I/OCLC MARC Tags workshop and/or equivalent
experience and knowledge of AACR2R (equivalent to SOLINET Interpreting
the OCLC MARC Record). Participants should provide what online system
they are using and should send examples to incorporate into the

Intended audience:

The course is designed for those who are new to the MARC Holdings
Format, including those who have created holdings records using other
mechanisms (e.g., OCLC's local data record). It is designed primarily
for those who will create holdings records but is also useful for
managers and system designers wishing to know more about the format and
its uses.
