YBP's Gobi Citations
|Guidelines for selectors
|1. Gobi is most efficient when you use it as a tool
for requesting titles that have been sent
to you as electronic form selections.
It is still efficient, although less so, if you
mark other current or forthcoming titles
which have not been sent to you as form selections.
2. Gobi is not the best tool for
ordering replacements or added copies.These
can be most quickly ordered by sending an email to Order Division,
preferably including the Bibliographic ID number with fund information.
If you decide to request these titles via Gobi, you must include
a note indicating "AC OK" or "ACX OK" as appropriate.
Be aware, however, that we may not order them from YBP, in which
case the requested item will never have an "on order"
status in Gobi.
Booksets listed with volume
numbers should not be ordered via Gobi unless there is
a note indicating "standing order wanted" or "this
volume only." If there is no explanatory note the citation
will be returned to you for decision.
3. Gobi is not an appropriate
tool for placing a rush order,
as requests are not harvested on a daily basis. You may email the
citation to Order Division
with the subject line "Rush order". Be sure to include
the reason for the rush (rush for patron, rush for course reserve).
Alternatively, use our
rush order form available in the Order Division documentation/Forms
|3. The listing of a title
in Gobi does not mean that it is in stock, or even in print.
Any older titles selected are processed using the full search procedure
which takes much longer than the search and order procedure used for
RLIN or OCLC is a better tool for requesting such
titles, and screen shots may be emailed to Order
Division to request the titles.
If you wish to use Gobi to request these titles,
please notify Carol Fagundus ahead of time to clear any current
titles out of the request queue. This will allow for rapid ordering
of the current titles, and special treatment of the retrospective
|Tips for selectors
Gobi supplies status information on titles on order
with them. Some may also display as "shipped". This indicates
that we ordered the title from Gobi, either for your location or
another on campus. Be sure to check Voyager, and include an "AC
OK" note if necessary.
