|Cataloging Practices Manual||[CPM-810]|
Cataloging priority plays an important role in determining the routing and physical processing of materials. This document summarizes the ranking and meanings of cataloging priorities and the colored riders used to identify them.
See CPM812 for the relationship of rider to binding decisions.
|RIDERS IN ITEM||MEANING||PROCESSING PRIORITY|
|Wide GREEN rider*||Item for reserves|
|Slim GREEN rider*||Item with reader request (C33)||
|RED rider*||Priority 1 item, also called "red rush"|
|No priority rider||Priority 2 item|
* Monographs with these priority riders do not get processed for Precat. If no standard copy is available on first handling, they are routed to OSMC for original cataloging.
