The database pull was successful. Now we wait. For the next 4-6 weeks we cannot edit existing bibliographic records unless we make a printout of all the changes or use the ‘save’ file. The O-CAT folks decided that only new rush items will be cataloged so we minimize editing. We’re going to concentrate on our gifts cataloging because there are no bibs in the catalog for those items. We can bring in new bibs then mark them to pull later for the monthly authority records service that will be in place after we re-load the cleaned-up database.
We have plenty to do while we’re in this lull with our existing bibs: can you say “serials retrocon”??
