Monographic/Multi-Volume Set Records
- To determine a monographic set record, the 300 field will be without a
specific description of the item. The 300 field will be either an open
volume (v.1-) or closed volumes (22 v.)
- Make sure the 505 field (Contents) matches the volumes you have. If
you have additional volumes from the ones listed in the bib record, add
these volumes. Example: v.1. A-C -- v.2. D-FL -- v.3. Fo-Man -- v.4. Mar-P
-- v.5.R-Z. Do NOT remove contents descriptions for items
we do NOT have which are listed in the 505 field on the
bib record. Our 866 holdings statement will indicate what the library does
- In the 099 call number field on the bib record, make sure the
call number does not reflect an individual volume(s), but instead
represents the call number stem from which you will add the volumes on the
Example: 099 A1.76:605/v.1-3 (WRONG!)
Should be: 099 A1.76:605/
You may need to change the 852 field on the holdings record to match the
stem call number.
Example: 852 3 $b govdoc $h A1.76:605/
- If the record is for a monographic set record, on the holdings record
change the "Type of Record" to "v" for multi-part item holdings. Change
the "Encoding level" to a "3". Click "Ok". Click "Save to DB".
- You will need to create an 866 field on the holdongs record. This
field describes the items that the Library owns, not necessarily the
holdings of the record.
- To create an 866 field you must insert a line after the 852 field by
hitting the F4 key. 866 goes in the tag field, "3" goes in the indicator
one field and "1" goes in the indicator 2 field.
- In the subfield data space, change delimiter "a" to delimiter "8",
then add a space and put a "0" after it. Add delimiter "a"
Example: $8 0 $a
- If the holdings are volumes like the example in #2 above, the 866
field would look like:
$8 0 $a v.1-v.5
- If GWC does not own all the volumes indicated in the bib record, use a
"," (comma) to indicate the gaps. For example, GWC owns v.1,v.2,v.3 and
v.5, the 866 field would look like:
$8 0 $a v.1-v.3,v.5

- Make sure the record matches the item by checking the following:
- 100/110/111 field (issuing person/body (author))
- 245 field (title)
- 260 field (publication/distribution)
- 300 field (physical description)
- Once you determine the item matches the record, check to be sure there
is at least one subject heading and that the subject heading matches the
OCLC record. These are found in the 650/651 fields. Check the indicators.
The first indicator must be blank, and the second indicator must be 0 or
the subject headings are not valid. If the 650/651 fields on Voyager do
not match the OCLC record, copy and paste the 650/651 fields from OCLC
into Voyager so that the subject headings are the same on both the Voyager
and OCLC record.
- Open up "OCLC Passport for Windows" from the Desktop.
- Call up the record on Passport using the OCLC#. Type the number sign
(#) and type or paste in the OCLC number and hit the F10/F11 key. Example:
#11585549 and F10.
- Compare the Voyager and OCLC record. Look especially at the points
discussed in number one above and the OCLC number to check whether or not
there is an 019 field. If there is not a 019 field, proceed. If there is
an 019 field, see step #11, below.
- The OCLC record must be upadated to indicate that the State University
of West Georgia owns this item. Notice the OCLC record says "NO HOLDINGS
- Change the 090 field to 099 and paste in the SuDoc call number.
- Go to the 049 field. Change the last "C" in GWCC to a "D". It will
look like this GWCD.
- Hit the alt & F10 to send the changes you made to the OCLC record. It
should say "2 line(s) modified".
- Then, type "u" and hit the F10 key. OCLC will respond with "Record
Updated" and the record will now say "HELD BY GWC".
- Go back to the record in Voyager and edit the bib
record as follows. If the OCLC record has a 019 field, add this other
number(s) to the Voyager record in separate 035 fields. Begin each 035
field with delimeter "a". Put either OcOLC or ocm before the OCLC number.
Example (OcOLC)43564396 or ocm43564396. Make sure the OCLC number contains
8 digits. If it does not, fill in with the necessary amount of 0's (zeros)
in front of the number. Also, add 019 field and paste it into the bib
record exactly as they appear in the 019 field on the OCLC record.
- Click on "Get Hldgs". Click on "Leader". Make sure the "Type of
Record" is an "x" when the record is a monograph. Change the "Encoding
level" to a "1" when the record is a monograph. Click "Ok".
- Click on "008" button on the holdings record. Change the "Method of
Acquisition" to "d:Deposit". Click "OK". Click "Save to DB" icon.
- Click on "Get Item". Make sure that the barcode, call number and
location all match the item.
- If there is no barcode associated with the item record, click on the
ellipsis at the end of the barcode field. Wand in the barcode and click
- If you find records that seem to be identical, except for the 035
field, give the actual item to the Cataloger to determine which record to
- Put a note on the item stating "Duplicate OCLC Numbers".
- If the Marcive record does NOTcontain any 035 $a
field, which is the OCLC number or has MVI in the 035 field, give the item
to the Cataloger.
- Give the Cataloger the Bib number of the item.
- If you find a Marcive record for an item that West Georgia (GWC) has
cataloged as a serial record, give the item to the Cataloger with a note
stating "Marcive record monograph, GWC serial."
- Write down the Bib number for each record or the OCLC number on the
- Records may exist with the same title for a paper copy of an item and
a microfiche. Make sure the item in-hand and the record are the same
- Look for a 533 field. This is the reproduction statement and is used
for an item which is in microfiche or microfilm. Also, the 245 field may
- If there is a Marcive record which matches a title but is a
different format, remove the Marcive record and give the Cataloger
the item to catalog. For example, if hte Marcive record is a paper record,
but the item in hand is a fiche record, you would remove the Marcive
record (item, holding, bib), and give the Cataloger the fiche to catalog.
Put a note on the fiche, "Marcive record was paper" so we know why we are
getting old fiche to catalog.
- If there is a Marcive record for one format and the Ingram Library
record used is for a differing format which matches the item, remove the
Marcive record. Technically, if records are identical, except for the
format, they are NOT duplicate records.

- Make sure that the Marcive record is actually a fiche record. Be sure
the record has a 533 field (reproduction note) and in the 245 (title
field) has a [microform] designation.
- In Voyager, change the 049 to GWCG and delete
- Edit Holdings Record.
- Change Leader to indicate the appropriate "Type of Record" and

- Follow the same procedures for monograph paper records in regards to
019, 650/651 etc.
