Holdings information on booksets and serials

  1. Bound holdings for serials and booksets should continue to be recorded in 866a, x, z in the appropriate MFHD in Cataloging


    • Bound (or permanently held in the case of non-print materials) holdings should be recorded in the 866a field

    • Lacks notes should be recorded in the 866z field


    • CURRENT ISSUES IN: notes should be recorded in the 866z field


    • DESIGNATOR: notes should be recorded in the 866x field


    • Other misc. public notes should be recorded in the 866z field


    • Other misc. processing notes connected with the bound (permanent) holdings should be recorded in the 866x field


  2. New Practice: Cumulative indexes should now be recorded in the 868 field. This will be done for all newly added cumulative indexes. We will gradually transfer previously recorded indexes to the 868 field as records are updated.


  3. Checked in loose issues returned to location prior to binding: There will be a public display of loose checked in issues until superseded by permanent bound holdings.
