8/2
/11


Update copy cataloging according to the ch
ecklist

below. In addition:



Retain information already present in the record unless it is
factually incorrect



Correct typos that affect keyword searching



Fix glaring errors and omissions, especially those affecting access via coded data or keyword
searching, less so those affecting description



Update Level 3 records (abbreviated record, usually

from vendors
)




Create a new record if the only record(s) are cataloged by a non
-
English agency (040 |b
,

but see
NON
-
ENGLISH COPY CATALOGING
)



The fixed field fill character (
|

) is described in BIB RECORD OVERVIEW guidelines

In Connexion:



Update records i
n Connexion as well as Voyager, except for local information including call number.
It may be quicker to update in Connexion and then overlay the Voyager record. See
the OCLC
Expert Community guidelines at

http://www.oclc.org/support/documentation/worldcat/cataloging/ece/



When updating, change Encoding Level as appropriate; if the record is technically full level but you
feel it could use more work (e.g. non
-
Roman script)
assign Level K



Control only those headings handled by “Control All” (F10 macro available)



D
o not remove a uniform title main entry (e.g. Motion picture) in the OCLC record, only in Voyager

title using |n and |p (if present). For individual episodes of a
finite series

like
The Civil War
only
the 245 is needed

seasons of an

Wesleyan
uses AACR2

and
LC Rule Interpretations
, with some local modifications
. LC itself catalogs
according to
AMIM (Archival Moving Images Material manual).

In examples, |a is understood to be
included.


Search for cataloging copy that clearly represents the item in hand.
Differences in these are
as require
original cataloging:




Different publisher



Different edition (Special ed. vs. no ed. statement; Special ed.

vs.
Collector's ed.)



Black and white vs. col
or (or colorized)



Sound vs. silent (e.g. a video of a silent film without a soundtrack vs. a silent film with a
soundtrack)



VHS NTSC vs. VHS PAL vs. VHS SECAM (NTSC is compatible with standard U.S.
VCRs
; PAL
and SECAM are not, although they may be played
back on special "universal" VCRs
)



VHS vs. DVD



Dubbed version vs. subtitled version



Subtitles in English vs. subtitles in
another language



Widescreen (letterbox/lbx) vs. full
-
screen (pan and scan)



Theatrical release vs. "Director's cut"



Theatrical release
vs. theatrical release plus
commentary, interviews, deleted scenes,
"making of"
documentary
, etc.


A change in copyright on the box or sleeve will sometimes
merely
reflect a change in packaging design; if
this is the only change, do not create a new record

or update
date info in
the cataloging copy.


If the bibliographic record does not indicate closed captioning

and the video is clearly closed
-
captioned,
update the bibliographic record unless you are certain that two versions exist.

Lang


Accurate language codes are important in part because library systems ignore initial articles according to
the language of the text of certain titl
e fields. To identify the language of an item in OCLC
, Connexion
c
hecks the codes in field 041 or, if no 041 is present, the Lang field
. Not sure how Voyager does it.


Lang represents the language of the
sound track
.

If the item has sound but no narrati
on, use the
language of the accompanying printed script or printed titles or subtitles. If the item has sound but no
narration, printed script, or titles or subtitles, use zxx for "no linguistic content." Prior to June 1, 2006,
libraries used three blank

spaces, or "N/A" in OCLC (e.g. instrumental music); OCLC converted all old
records to the new code. Sign Language has its own code.


If both the original language soundtrack and a dubbed English language soundtrack are available, MARC
21 seems to say
that the translated (in this case, dubbed) language takes precedence over the original
language when coding Lang.





[Interpretation by Jay Weitz in OLAC Cataloger’s Judgment]


If the sound

(or whatever is being
examined
to determine Lang, e.g. script) is

in more than one language,
use the predominant language
. If
the predominant language cannot be determined:

2
-
6 languages:

Use the code for the language
that is first alphabetically.

Mo
re than 6 languages:

Use the code for the language of the first tit
le.

041 LANGUAGE CODE


Use an 041 when multiple languages are involved:




The sound track has different language versions



The subtitles or intertitles (used in silent films) are in different languages



An accompanying sound recording has different language versions



An accompanying sound recording is in one language and the same

text is printed on the main
item in the form of subtitles in another language



Accompanying printed scripts are in multiple languages (e.g., one is in Spanish, one in French)


The first |a matches Lang in the
008.



Dubbing is a form of
translation
,
so
first
indicator
=
1 (item is or includes a translation). A
|
h for the
original language should
immediately
follow the subfield or group of
similarly
-
coded
subfields that
represent the language(s) of translation.



Subtitles are
not

a form of translation,

so
first indicator = 0. A
|b
is used for
the language of the subtitles

when the language diffe
rs from that of the soundtrack (in other words,
i
f a code appears in |a

do not
repeat it in
|b
)
.

Closed

captions are
considered subtitles.

OF INFORMATION



AACR
7.0B1.


Chief source of information
.


The chief source of information for videorecordings is in this
order of preference:

a) the film
/television program
itsel
f (e.g. the title/credit frames, which may be at the end)

b) the cassette or disc holding the film
/television program




Use either a) or b); do not combine them together to create a chief source.


Examine a) only if you have any reason to question b)

or

other source of title.



If the information is not available from the chief source, take it from the following sources in this order of
preference:

a) accompanying textual information (e.g. scripts, shot lists, publicity materials)

b) container (e.g. th
e box)

c) other sources


Nonroman script in the chief source of information
. Use the record that has romanized the nonroman
portion of the chief source, if it is a good record. If you cannot find such a record or it is not a good
record (number of
holding libraries may be a factor), use the best record you can find and edit it to include
the romanized information from the chief source. As needed, crib from other parts of the record, other
records, accompanying material, and perhaps even the Interne
t Movie Database or other video database,
or do your own romanization if you can. If you cannot find romanized info, catalog without it; this may
mean cataloging a Japanese video completely in English
, although the preference would be to send to
OCLC Cont
ract Cataloging (
TechPro
)
. As needed, add notes describing the sources of your cataloging
information. If in doubt as to the right record or record quality, send to TechPro.

MAIN ENTRY


Almost all videos are entered under title. Some
exceptions might be video art

(
where in some cases the
video is totally conceived and executed by a single individual
)
, a video about a business firm
commissioned by the firm, or a video of a conference if the conference is named.


AACR2 21.1B2e

says

a music video by a performing group "where the responsibility of the group goes
beyond that of mere performance, execution, etc." is entered under
(i.e. the main entry is)
the name of the
group. For performance situations, LCRI 21.23C applies the rules fo
r sound recordings to videorecordi ngs
when the video contains works by different
persons or bodies (entry under
principal performer).

If the British and U.S. versions were

When adding/editing/deleting a uniform title be sure to revise
title main entries

in other video
records, inserting 948’s for recat/reauth to re

send the records to LTI.



Records
referring

to a motion picture or television program may include 630’s/730’s/
830’s with
“(Motion picture)” or “(Television program)”. If copy cataloging you may leave them as is. If
original cataloging, use the form authorized by LC.



*
LCRI 25.5B Appendix 1
says to create a uniform title
qualified by “(Motion picture)” or “(Television program)”
if the title proper
matches a title proper in a 245, 247, 4xx, 730, 760
-
787, or 8xx in our catalog. Our video holdings are not so extensive as to require
this,
nor is it
particularly helpful in
Voy
ager which shows 245 and year, but not uniform title
, when there are multiple hits.
The LCRI
replaced an earlier LCRI which specified using a uniform title main entry qual
i
fied by “(Motion picture)” or “(Television program)” if
it
was
--
or is later
--
used
a
s a secondary (added) entry or subject heading in another record. This has been so inconsistently applied in
both our catalog and in OCLC
that it is
virtually useless
.
Furthermore,
clicking on a title subject heading
in most catalogs
will not
search (uniform) title
main

entries.



25.2D.
Nonroman scripts
. If the title selected as the uniform title is in a nonroman script, romanize it or
find romanization for it according to the table for that language. That's what the rule says bu
t, given our
level of expertise, we may sometimes have to accept a record that lacks the uniform title.

Uniform titles with “(Motion picture)”

Comprehensive title/Individual title
. When cataloging an individual title that is part of a comprehensive
title, determine whether the individual titles were intended to be viewed consecutively or not. If
consecutive
ly, e.g. theatrical serials and certain educational and technical materials, use as the title
proper a structured combination of the components that consists of a comprehensive title and either an
individual title or a numeric designation (e.g. episode num
ber, chapter number) or both. In case of doubt,
treat the individual title as intended to be viewed consecutively.

A 246
(variant t
itle
)

may be necessary
--
see below.


If the comp
rehensive title re
presents a publisher/distributor

series, treat it as a series
:


245 00 Boogie nights

440 0 New Line platinum series


Television programs
.


Uniform title with “(Television program)”


Do not use a uniform title
main entry
with
“(Television program)” even if the heading is established that
way in our catalog or in the LC authority file
, even for original cataloging
.


Records
referring

to a television program may include 630
’s
/730’s
/830’s
with


“(Television program)”. If
copy cat
aloging you may leave them as is. If original cataloging, use the form authorized by LC.


Television episodes

and compilations


T
he name of the television series is entered in 245
|
a and the episode should be entered as a dependen
t
title using |n
and
|p (
if present). For individual episodes of a
finite series

like
The Civil War
only the 245 is
needed

(unless there is some other reason to require a uniform title). For individual
seasons of

an
indefinite
(ongoing)
series

like
Buffy
,
a uniform title is
needed
.


You may u
tilize cataloging copy that follows this common practice, but modify it according to our
practices:


Alternate practice will continue to be encountered since many cataloging units may not follow the LCRI. If the name of the
episode was
distinctive, the episode title was recorded in 245 |a; the name of the television program was generally
recorded in a note and a 730 was made for the television program. When the name of the episode was not distinctive, the
name of the television program
was entered in |a and the episode name was entered as a dependent title using |n and |p.


The LCRI requires that television episodes meant to be viewed consecutively include a |n subfield
(numeric designation). "Giving 246 title access or not [to the |p t
itle] is based on the character of the
individual title and a judgment of the usefulness of title access in that form"

LCRI.

In the absence of a numeric designation on the resource, a |n subfield should be supplied in the form

If the television episode does not have to be viewed as part of a consecutive sequence, generally
omit
the
numeric designat
ion when an episode title is available. Unlike serials, a 130 is not made solely to
remove the initial article in |p.

Note use of 246 to provide access to the title/episode number combination
in cases where the
LC
RI instruction is to leave out the numeric

designation in the title proper.

Keep in mind that for a multipart set treated as classed

analyzed set for the history of Islamic civilization would require |n in the 245 for the analytics; a multipart
"Shakespeare's plays on video" would not get a |n in the 24

245 TITLE


1.1B8.
Title proper (245 |a

|n |p
).

If the chief source of information bears titles in two or more
languages or scripts, transcribe as the title proper the one in the language or script of the main written,
spoken, or s
ung content of the item. If this criterion is inapplicable, choose the title proper according to
the order of titles on, or the layout of, the chief source of information. Record the other titles as parallel
titles (see 1.1D).


LCRI 1.1B2.
Credits in title.
When credits for performer, author, director, producer, "presenter," etc.,
precede or follow the title in the chief source, in general do not consider them as part of the title proper,
even though the language used integrates the credits

with the title. (In the examples below, the
underlined words are to be considered the title proper.)

Parallel titles.

Transcribe parallel titles in the order indicated by their sequence on, or by
the layout of, the chief source of information. Include each parallel title in an ad
ded entry, unless it is also
the uniform title (see 25.5C1 below).

entering under uniform title, make an added entry for the title proper (245 1st ind

245 |c STATEMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY


7.1F1. Transcribe from the chief source the names credited

with "a major role in creating a film (e.g., as
producer, director, animator)." All other statements of responsibility ("including those relating to
performance") should be given in the notes (511, 508).

See 7xx, below, for more information.


246 TITLE A
DDED ENTRY


The 246 (Varying form of title) is used for a title associated with the item itself, whe
ther

or not the title is
on the item. Use 246 if it differs substantially from the 245 and if it contributes to further identification of
the item. Also u
se 246 for tracing a portion of the title and parallel titles.

260 PUBLICATION INFORMATION


Publication information may come from any area, but prefer in order: chief source (i.e. title frames, then
cassette/disc), accompanying material, container (i.e. box/sleeve it comes in). Information from any of
these sources does not require brackets. I
f from other sources or guessed, do supply brackets.


Place
.

Since the place of publication is often absent on

the cassette/disc, use "[S.l.]" only as a last resort.
First preference is probable place (city) in English form followed by a question mark.
If a probable place
is not available, give the state, province, or country; follow with a question mark if not certain.


Date
. Use judgment in determining the publication date from title frames since the date may be the
original release date and not the
date of the manifestation you have in your hand.


Some videos

have a copyright date on the
cassette/disc
that represents the date the item was published;
this date would be recorded just as found, with the copyright symbol, e.g. c1999.


If there is no co
pyright date on the
cassette/disc,
look for the latest date of those that may be printed on
the back of the container (copyright date for cover design,

etc.) and use this latest data

as the assumed
date of publication. Record this date in brackets and wit
hout the copyright symbol because it is an
assumed date, e.g. [1999]. Copyright renewal date
s

are ignored.

SUBJECT
/FORM/GENRE

HEADINGS


Since it is impossible to browse a

video

collection, greater detail in subject
and genre
cataloging is
required for films than for books. In addition to the normal rules governing the assignment of subject
headings, follow the
guidelines

below
.

650's precede
655's
.


Topical


1) A subject entry is made for all important topics mentioned in
the summary statement. If a specific topic
is emphasized in order to illustrate a more general concept, subject headings are assigned for both the
specific and the general topics. Form subdivisions are assigned only to the extent that such subdivisions
a
re applicable both to print and audiovisual media.
Subdivision
|v
Pictorial

works

is not used.

Sub
division
|
v Videorecordings

is not used.


2) When a topic is discussed in conjunction with a particular place, a subject entry is made, insofar as it is
possible, under both the topic and place, e.g.:


Oases

|z
Sahara

Sahara

|x
Description and travel



Drug abuse

|z
New York (N.Y.)

New York (N.Y.)

|x
Social conditions


3) When a film
/
television program
treats a particular person as illustrative of a
profession or activity, a
heading is assigned for both the person and the field of endeavor. Such are not, as a general rule,
treated as biographies.


4) For commercials, a heading is assigned for the generic name of the product being advertised.
A
headi
ng is also assigned for the particular advertising medium, if identified.


Aspirin

Television advertising


5)
Topical headings with the subdivision
Drama

(or, in the case of juvenile fiction films, the subdivision
Juvenile films
)

are assigned to the same

extent that they are assigned to individual dramas in book form.

(
Subject Cataloging Manual: Subject Headings
, H1780)
.


Genre/Form



See separate guidelines for 655 GENRE/FORM HEADINGS.


Assign as many genre/form headings as necessary to bring out impor
tant forms
/
genres to which the work
belongs. Example of
The Wizard of Oz
:

Musical films.

Fantasy films.

Children’s films.

Fiction films.

Feature films


Videorecordings cataloging

Do not assign a broader and narrow term
in
the same record, e.g. for
Romantic comedy films

do not also
assign
Comedy films
; for
Rock films

do not also assign
Musical films
.
Rely on the
authority
cross
-
references to

direct
users from one to the other.


3
) Create separate headings for film and television genres and forms. Prefer the formulas
[.
. .] films

and


[. . .] television programs
, although headings of the type
Film [. . .]

or
Television [. . .]

may also be
appropriate. If neither of these two options is practical (e.g. due to common usage or literary warrant),
then headings may be constr
ucted by using the qualifiers (Motion pictures) or (Television programs).
Examples:

Horror films
.

Film adaptations
.

Rushes (Motion pictures)

Horror television programs
.

Television adaptations
.

Variety shows (Television programs)



4
) Distinguish fiction f
rom nonfiction in
all records:
Fiction films

or
Fiction television programs
;
Nonfiction
films

or
Nonfiction television programs.


[new LC practice 9/19/07]


5
) The form heading
Feature films

is assigned to fiction films with a running time of 40 minutes or more.
The heading
Short films

is assigned to those with a running time of less than 40 minutes. It follows that
every fiction film will have one or the other of these headings.


6
)
Vide
o

recordings for the hearing impaired

or
Video recordings for people with visual
disabilities

is
assigned when
the video has captions or sign language for viewing by the hearing impaired
,

or a
dditional
audio description

for the visually impaired
.
For a ti
me
LC discontinued these
headings
in favor of
Films

for the hearing impaired

and
Films for people with visual
disabilities

but
it
now
allows both.
The
headings
with
Video

recordings

are
technically
more accurate
because it's
almost always
the video that
has been
augmented

rather than
the original film.
When adding headings or doing original cataloging prefer
Video
recordings
headings, otherwise leave as is.


7
)
In addition to being form/genre heading
s
,
Film adaptations

and
Television program adaptations
serve
as

topical
subject heading
s

used for books, etc.
about

film

or television program
adaptations.

|v Film and video adaptations

is a form/genre subdivision after a
name
,

for discussion or collections of
motion picture or video adaptations of the person
’s creative works.

|x Film and video adaptations

is a topical subdivision used after names when the work is
about film and
video adaptations

of a person's works.


8
) Musicals are
popular theater in which sung and danced musical numbers in popular and pop music
styles are combined within a dramatic structure. Musicals are typically
mostly dialogue with some music,
while operas are all or mostly music. Despite its association with
classical music the genre heading
“Operas” may be assigned to rock operas. In addition to other appropriate headings assign
:

For musicals:


Musical films

(not Musicals, which is used for audio and scores/librettos)

For rock operas:
Rock films, Rock m
usic |y [year span], Operas


Juvenile


1)
The free
-

Original cataloging is often required, but if you find an OCLC record for a
legitimate
copy in the same format, use that record as the basis for copy cataloging, editing as needed.



Choreographic works


Assign a 630 rather than a 730 for videos of choreographic works. (This appears to be LC practice for
video although it does not seem to
be documented.) For choreographic works, see LCRI 25.5B.

.


7XX ADDED ENTRIES


Make added entries for
the most important
names cited in 245
|
c
, usually:




Producer



Director



Writer



Animator



Production company

(of the item in hand, also the original film

or television program if applicable)


Concentrate on entities that are identified directly as "presenting" and "producing" and set aside those
that are identified as "in association with" and other such implications of subordination. If any relationships
among named entities can be determined, and if the presentation of the credits allows, opt for transcribing
and tracing only the highest/broadest named entity in a hierarchy. If there is a way to differentiate one
-
time entities created solely for a particu
lar film from ongoing entities that did have and will have a
continuing life, that could be another criterion for choice
.


Optionally, make added entries for names recorded in 508. Do not add |4 (relator code) or |e (relator
name), but if there are alread
y a bunch of them in the record, just leave them.


Make related work added entries for adaptations of literary or dramatic works.

Usually these will be
author
-
title added entries.
730 is for Uniform Title and 740 for Uncontrolled Related/Analytical
Title.


See 6xx, above, for videos of choreographic works.


CLASSIFICATION

is somewhat outdated but may
still be useful.


When a uniform title is prese

An example of the same cutter number would be a VHS

For these, the years will
most likely differ, but if not assign the same

TV series with each season cataloged on a separate bib
are akin to cat

sep multivolume monographs.
Each record should have the same call number, differentiated by:

the chronological info relatin
g to the season and not the publication date.

are assigned the most specific class numbers available in the LC schedules,
including Cutter numbers for topics, places, or persons, if they are printed/online in the schedules.
Cutter
numbers are not included for places or individuals if the caption in the schedule reads, for example, "By
region or country, A
-
Z" or "Individual, A
-
Z" and printed/online Cutters are not present. If a number for the
specific topic of the film has no
t been established, the next broader class number is assigned.


Artistic performances




Drama


Dramatizations of literary works are classed in literary author numbers if their intention is clearly to teach
about or criticize the author or the author's style

or to provide opportunity for discussion rather than simply
to entertain
; otherwise, class as entertainment in PN1997.
Literary author numbers are also assigned to
films/broadcasts of an author reading his or her work. If a specific Cutter number has no
t yet been
established for the author, LC assigns a class number with an incomplete Cutter (e.g. PR6052.B), which
we should make into a full Cutter that fits into our shelflist.
