Electronic Resources

Electronic resources consist of non-musical titles on compact disc or diskettes, electronic books, and Internet resources. All materials will have full bibliographic records in the online catalog.

Non-musical titles on CD or diskette are shelved in the stacks. They are assigned Library of Congress call numbers. They are placed in book size containers for ease in shelving and locating.

Bibliographic records for NetLibrary titles are provided and loaded by the University System of Georgia and should not be edited.

Bibliographic records for Internet resouces will be edited to add at least the Library of Congress class number.

For descriptive cataloging refer to AACR2 and OCLC MARC21 codes for bibliographic records.
