We the people : the American people and their government / [text, Division of Political History]. (OCLC #1288911)
In a SuDoc classification number, the cutter for the title is based on the first significant word in the title that denotes the subject of the resource, also excluding “catch phrases”. For this resource, “We the people” is skipped, and the cutter is based on the word American:
Up all night with Robert Downey Sr. [videorecording] / directed by Robert Downey Sr. ; screenplay by Robert Downey Sr. (OCLC #793654441)
When you are cataloging a collection of works on one record, the individual titles of those works should be recorded as analytical entries:
740 02 ǂa Babo 73.
740 02 ǂa Chafed elbows.
740 02 ǂa No more excuses.
740 02 ǂa Putney Swope.
740 02 ǂa Two tons of turquoise to Taos tonight.
No relationship designator is needed; it is already encoded in the MARC: in 740, second indicator ‘2’ designates the field as an analytical entry. The first indicator is the number of non-filing characters in the title; however, current practice is to always use first indicator ‘0’, and just enter the title without articles or other non-filing characters.
Behavior and neurology of lizards : an interdisciplinary colloquium / edited by Neil Greenberg and Paul D. MacLean. (OCLC #4571831)
In a SuDoc classification number, the cutter for the title is based on the first significant word in the title that denotes the subject of the resource. This excludes words common to government documents (“Symposium”, “Report”), to the particular agency (“Forest”, “Wood” for the Forest Service).
This resource was cuttered on the word Lizards even though it’s the fifth word in the title.
as that series authority is for a specific series published by a different publisher. I checked another volume of the series online and confirmed that it is a series that looks a specific way, not just confusion over publisher vs. manufacturer.
I put our holdings on that record, but did not include the series information locally, allowing the note to describe its inclusion in the lecture series, but not the bibliographic series.
Analytics and dynamic customer strategy : big profits from big data / John F. (Jeff) Tanner, Jr. (OCLC #877564696)
According to the OCLC master record, this resource is available from many vendors: Books24x7, Ebook Library, ebrary, EBSCOhost, John Wiley, MyiLibrary, OverDrive, and RBdigital. The copy I have access to (ebrary) does not include the nickname “Jeff” in the statement of responsibility, but the description may have been originally based on a version that had it. The description in a provider-neutral record may not exactly match each version, but is probably close enough to provide good access.
AHRQ research activities / Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. (OCLC #44512447)
In preparation for migration for a new ILS, we’re re-examining our policy of using item records for ebooks, as the migration process will identify any resource with an item record as physical, and we want our ebooks correctly identified as electronic.
Before deleting anything, we searched for items using our generic ebook barcode (“EBOOKNONCIRC”) on print mfhds, and items with more specific barcodes on internet mfhds. We found a couple of irregularities in both searches.
This title’s multi-format government document record had both print and internet holdings, and the item with its specific barcode had been linked to the internet holding; it has now been re-linked to the print.
