ERM Implementation Team
Present:† Baia, Culshaw,
Fong, Helgoth, Jobe, Wicht
re-stated her concerns about ďlosingĒ the bib record and the need the give
the issue careful consideration.
summarized a recent conversation with a librarian from CSU:† CSU is creating resource records for
databases, not creating records for journal packages.††† CSU has not created subject headings
for packages such as Wiley Interscience. This is a reflection of past
practices.† Reference staff at CSU donít want users to find databases from
the catalog.† The A-Z and Subject
lists appear to be the only access points.†
CSU is using local subject headings for the A-Z listing.† At present the A-Z listing is a static
html page (more below).
- On the
subject of static pages in the A-Z listing, one member of the team
remembered discussion during our ERM training session.† It is thought that Innovative may be at
work on an upgrade to create dynamic pages.
authority records for subject headings appears to be based on field group
tag d rather than record type.
(See the minutes from 7/11/2005). Culshaw agreed to follow up with
Innovative to see whether or not this is a correct assumption.
we need to retain the E-Journal Finder when ERM is fully implemented?† Questions remain about loading brief bib
records into Chinook.† Possible to
buy MARC records from Serials Solutions.†
These would be loaded/unloaded on a regular basis (perhaps
quarterly) to reflect the contents of aggregator databases.† Would still need to purchase data from
agreed to search the archives of Innovativeís ERM list to see if there has
been discussion of discontinuing creation of bib record if a library
creates a full resource record.† She
also agreed to search to see if any library has been creating brief bib
records from coverage loads.† The
team would like to see samples from another catalog.
reiterated that you canít get things into ERMís A-Z list if they donít
have resource records.
discussion of the need to revise workflows as ERM is implemented.† Helgoth wonders if resource records can
be downloaded using Z39.50 and imported in ERM.†† Efficiencies can be realized if you can
pull information from existing bib records.
group hopes to complete its work on variable fields next week in order to
move onto contact records.† Wicht
has contact information in a variety of places and formats.† She would like to add this information to
ERM before going on leave.
order to test some of the groupís ideas, we need some sample records. Fong
and Jobe agreed to work on resource records for:
North American Womenís Letters and Diaries.
next committee meeting is scheduled for 7/25/2005.† Upcoming vacations will impact the
meeting schedule.† Helgoth will be
out on August 1.† Fongís out from
August 9 for about 3 weeks.† Jobe
will be out August 15-26.† Fong
plans to visit U. of Washington
on August 22.† The committee should
draft any questions that it would like Fong to ask by August 8.
