Thanks to Joel Hahn for this lovely new Connexion macro for adding common 34X fields for materials like DVD and Blu-Ray, audio CDs, VHS, records, large print, and playaway. I just selected the appropriate options from the pulldowns, and quickly added these fields that I used to look up when I needed them:

340  ǂb 4 3/4 in. ǂ2 rda
344  digital ǂb optical ǂg stereo ǂh Dolby digital 5.1 ǂ2 rda
346  ǂb PAL ǂ2 rda
347  video file ǂb DVD video ǂe region 2

Conoco’s tar sands development in South Texas / Michael W. Britton. (OCLC #898578225)

This title is about tar sands in South Texas. The authorized heading Oil sands can be subdivided geographically, and a geographic term is available for South Texas (South Texas), so we can assign the heading.

650 _0 ǂa Oil sands ǂz Texas, South.

I was surprised that OCLC’s Generate043 macro did not trigger based on this heading, so added the 043 for Texas by hand:

043 __ ǂa n-us-tx

I wonder which other headings are not being detected? Code for the macro is available from Connexion’s Tools -> Macros, and though it is over 2000 lines long, much of it is data, so it seems reasonable to read – maybe I’ll bring this one next time it’s my turn to host Code Club.


The public papers of governor Martha Layne Collins, 1983-1987 / Elizabeth Duffy Fraas, editor. (OCLC #884916739)

If you are cataloging a digitized copy of a print book, you can use the OCLC macro OCLC!GenerateERecord while viewing a print record to create a workform with the same information, edited somewhat to indicate that it is an ebook. You’ll still have to do some editing, but it is a good start!
