Holdings Screen for all Microforms


Call numbers are chronologically assigned accession numbers.

Before producing cataloging for any microform, a shelflist card must be prepared for all locations, a chronological number must be assigned, and the card must be filed in the proper place in the shelflist to reserve the number.

This card is the permanent shelflist record, and will not be replaced by a printed shelflist card.

See: Making Shelflist Cards.


Supply the applicable prefix and the pre-assigned number:

    MICROFILM 08995
    • For booksets, record the parts or volumes received:
        866 _0 |a Pt.1-pt.6

    • For microforms in one bibliographic unit, but with more than one physical reel or fiche, record the physical holdings in summary format:
        866 _0 |a reel 1-304

    • For serials, follow normal serials adding conventions
