Cataloging Prio. #2a (of 3): Maximize Patron Access to Newly Received Monographs

Priority 2a: Maximize patron access to newly received monographs by cataloging as much of this material as possible


A Catalog Department priority will be to move the same number of materials out of the final phase of our new cataloging workflow, as enter the first phase. In this process, we will try to minimize the number of items that receive Level 3 cataloging (i.e., In process call#s)


There also have been cases where new materials have not been cataloged because old Gladis procedures were not updated for Millennium (e.g., analytics, accompanying materials, dissertation photocopies, etc).  We have identified all categories of materials with this problem and have made great progress in drafting, vetting and approving new procedures.
