Quick Order Procedure
This procedure presents a streamlined way to order material designated for the Search and Order procedure. Material eligible for treatment includes OCLC screen shots or printouts which contain author, title , series and isbn in reliable format. For all intents and purposes this means that it should be LC or Library provided catalog record as opposed to a brief vendor record.
- Sort orders in such a way that you can set defaults in Acquisitions for efficient ordering.
- Be sure that your Bibliographic Import/Replace profile in Cataloging is set to OCLC Add Conditional. This is CRUCIAL to the success of this procedure.
- Check any series statements for standing orders in Voyager following posted procedure.
- Search OCLC either using Connexion or the Remote Search capability in Voyager. If there is an isbn available the fastest way to search is by ISBN.
- Look at the record retrieved to determine if any searching may be needed (bookset, reprint, etc).
- Brief vendor record – follow the usual Search and Order Procedure.
- Fully cataloged LC or “member “ copy record – follow procedure below.
- Add the 904 to the record and save the bibliographic record. If the Bibliographic Dedupe Detection box pops up, retrieve the record(s) and make a decision about whether to proceed with the order.
- Create a multiline purchase order if possible(set appropriate defaults in Acq ; use the win-alt-o macro to create the original order from the first bibliographic record in the batch and the win-alt-q macro to add lines for subsequent titles)
