Libraries may use Library of Congress Classification, Dewey Decimal Classification, National Library of Medicine Classification, or Superintendent of Documents Classification (SuDoc). The call number field in bibliographic records is suppressed in the OPAC. When making a change in an item record call number, it is not necessary to make a corresponding change in the bibliographic record.
Libraries should use their own discretion in choosing records for serials.
Libraries should follow the standards for LIBRARY HAS statements defined in the OhioLINK Handbook.
Libraries should follow OPTION A. OhioLINK recommends that Level 3 summary holdings statement conventions be followed, and further recommends that Option A -- wherein enumeration and chronology is recorded together with captions in non-MARC LIB HAS fields -- as the preferred format.
Libraries should follow OhioLINK’s standards for Cataloging Electronic Resources.
URLs for freely available content can be placed in the 856 field of the bibliographic record.
URLs for locally subscribed resources should be placed in an 856 ITEM FLD variable length field of an item record.
Please note: As outlined in the Final Report of the Electronic Resources Task Force below, records for some types of materials are not to be included in the OPAL catalog. These include, but are not limited to:
|Type of material||As Determined By|
|Databases||OCLC Type/MARC leader byte 7 = 'i' AND OCLC Form/MARC 008 pos 23 = 'o'|
|Web sites||OCLC Type/MARC leader byte 7 = 'i' AND OCLC Form/MARC 008 pos 23 = 'o'|
|Electronic journals||OCLC Type/MARC leader byte 7 = 's' AND OCLC Form/MARC 008 pos 23 = 'o'|
|Online images||OCLC Type/MARC leader byte 6 = 'k' AND OCLC Form/MARC 008 pos 23 = 'o'|
Records for open access content may be added on a title-by-title basis. However, en masse loading of entire collections is only permissible when the entire consortium agrees to have the collection added to their respective scopes. For additional details, see Online Access Content.
Bibliographic records for juvenile materials should contain at least one Library of Congress Subject Heading.
If a bibliographic record has a juvenile subject heading, do not delete this heading or modify it to a Library of Congress Subject Heading. Add an appropriate Library of Congress Subject Heading.
Do not delete juvenile subject headings in an OCLC record before exporting.
If a juvenile book has received an award, add a 586 Juvenile Awards Note following the standardized list in Appendix J.
Lexile is used as a tool to measure student growth and provide a way to determine which books might be appropriate for students based on their reading abilities. As a result, education students and faculty tend to want to keyword search by Lexile value.
Unfortunately the $b of 521 8 where Lexile information is added to a MARC record is not searchable.
To rectify this issue we input the information with:
521 8 as xxxL Lexile, i.e. 521 8 670L Lexile (NOT 521 8 670$b Lexile)
This allows for keyword searching for "lexile" or more specific searches by Lexile value or ranges, including using wildcards, e.g., "(11**L or 12**L) AND lexile".
Support runs catalog maintenance periodically to clean-up records that don't follow this format.
Records in either RDA or AACR2 may be exported into the OPAL catalog. Original cataloging by OPAL members may be accepted in either format, as long as it conforms to national cataloging standards and the national authority file. More info here: https://opal-libraries.org/rda
