Though it may appear simple, there's a lot of thought behind these three steps. The Smithsonian Libraries would like to share the behind-the-scenes of how we work with shelf ready materials and records furnished through OCLC's WorldCat Cataloging Partners. Attendees will learn how we use MarcEdit to manipulate data and provide quality control; how we use macros to add linked data elements to records; and they will hear about the kinds of problems we encounter in the process. There will also be information on our newly formed working group to revise our shelf ready procedures from selection to receiving. Come and learn about the work and planning that goes into making it as easy as 1-2-3.
