Purpose of the Policy
Scope: This procedure can be used by all MOBIUS member libraries operating on the Sierra system.
Responsible party: Each cluster is responsible for manually entering the 229 fields. The procedure is to be done on as needed basis.
Original Policy Document
For new serial records, type p or n, enter the following fields:
- Record has 130, copy 130 as 229.
- Record has no 130, copy 245 as 229.
- Record has 246, create 229 for each 246 as needed.
- For entries that the patron does not easily locate, an additional 229 may be created at the cataloger's discretion.
If an entry in this index has non-filing characters they are to be deleted and the second (non-filing) indicator set to zero. New 229 tags should be entered without initial articles. Indicator values: 1st indicator blank, 2nd indicator 0 (set to zero since initial articles should be omitted).
When cataloging a serial that does not meet the serial type p or n, provide 229 access if judged appropriate.
Retain the correct serial type in the record.
