Cataloging >> Workflow


The following workflow suggests a basic plan of action for catalogers and is based upon several years experience cataloging in the Variations system.

Search for the Container

If You Know the System or Cataloging ID

If You Know the Recording Title

If You Know the Date the Container Record Was Created or Last Updated

Open the MARC Record Window

From this window, catalogers may drag and drop existing contributor and work records to the relevant container and instantiation fields. Records may be created for names and work titles listed in the "Unrecognized" column. Only names and work titles provided with access points in the original bibliographic record will be listed here.

If Names or Work Titles Appear in the Unrecognized Boxes

For Contributor Names and Work Titles Only Listed in Note Fields

These steps only apply when not provided access points in the original bibliographic record.
