Demystifying Batch-load Analysis Program

Demystifying Batch-Load Analysis: What You Need to Know About Vendor-Supplied Bibliographic Records

Co-sponsored and co-funded by OBS-SIS & TS-SIS

When: Sunday, July 13, 2008, 4:15-5:15 PM

Where: OCC-E146

Handout available at:

Description: The availability of vendor-supplied bibliographic records for batch-loading into our local catalogs presents new challenges: How should my library evaluate the quality of vendor-supplied MARC records before acquiring them? What role can the TS-SIS Task Group on Vendor-Supplied Bibliographic Records play in this process? This program will introduce ways to use readily available tools to analyze batches of MARC records. It will help libraries that have purchased access to packages such as MOML, LLMC, BNA, CIS, WLX, etc. and are considering how to provide access to them through their catalogs.

Coordinator: Ellen McGrath, University at Buffalo

Moderator: Kevin Butterfield, College of William and Mary

Speaker: Yael Mandelstam, Fordham University

Learning outcomes:

1. Participants will be able to identify quality control issues and problems associated with the batch-loading of vendor-supplied bibliographic MARC records

2. Participants will be able to analyze and modify batches of MARC records using tools available in their libraries
