For the most part, these categories are used for post cataloging changes or for special project work.
They may sometimes be used in conjunction with new cataloging (e.g. when cards are transcribed in
order to add a new location or copy).
Go to Example
- Call no. assigned
- Count here any title cataloged by another person for which you assign
the call number. Cataloged items requiring classification only will have
the cataloger's initials already present in the CLNF.
- Use when a bibliographic record for a previously cataloged item is
substantially changed (e.g. from serial to book) or when a cataloged title’s call number is
changed (e.g. from Dewey to LC or because the original class number was
- Do not use for correction of typographical errors in call numbers or
if the only change to the bibliographic record is a heading correction or update.
- If recataloging is done in conjunction with adding a new copy,
location or volume, count in those categories instead of here.
- Use when the location for a title is changed.
- If a transfer also entails Recat/Reclass, count only as Transfer. If
a transfer also requires transcription, count also under Transcribe/Recon. For example, if a GLX
title represented only by manual card is transferred to MANC, count as Transfer
and Transcribe/Recon, but not as Recat/Reclass.
- Use when manual cards are transcribed because no online copy is
available. This is usually used in combination with some other process (e.g. Add Copy or Transfer)
and is counted both here and in the category for the other process.
- Reinstate is no longer a separate category. If a reinstated item has
record, count as NEW cataloging. If an item is reinstated by unsuppressing a
withdrawn CLIO record, count as Recat/Reclass.
