Forms and Riders
The attention rider (see
CPM-910) is a light blue rider indicating that there are additional
instructions for departmental or cataloging staff in the CLIO item or
holdings record including patron notifications.
There are three uses of the attention rider:
- If a book is accompanied by an attention rider and a narrow dark green
rider when it is received in cataloging and the Patron notification
needed box is checked it means that a patron requested the book and
the patron information is located in the item notes field in the item record. In this
case the piece in hand should be routed to the appropriate person handling
- If the box Processing information is checked it means the item
is a replacement and there is a message for the departmental staff in the
900 field of the holdings record.
- The third box Patron hold in effect is used by
cataloging staff whenever it is discovered that a patron placed a hold on the item record and the
attention rider is inserted in the book along with the narrow dark green
rider to expedite processing. (See CPM-415).
