Subject: Cataloging of CD-ROM titles
Regarding CD-ROM titles, we catalog them on RLIN using the MRDF format. On
NOTIS we create OPR records and include notes on which discs must be
returned and which are kept indefinitely. One problem with the MRDF format
is that there is not a fixed field equivalent of the S/T so that it is not
possible to get the receipt lines in the OPR to display to the public.
Hence we are doing both a receipt line in the OPR and updating our summary
information in the VHLD. By doing this, the patrons also see what the
latest disc is.
