Cataloging questionnaire and code keys
The first step after your library has decided to move forward with a GreenGlass collection analysis project is to fill out an ILS specific Cataloging and Data Questionnaire. The questionnaire will be provided by your SCS liaison and is used to obtain details about the cataloging extract used for your project. Information you will provide in the questionnaire includes:
|Sample OPAC URL||
|Collection Codes and Location Codes||
|Item level data elements||
Codes are a natural language labels or names that appear in the item records you provide for your project. You will need to provide Code Keys for three item level codes, and an indication of whether each code is in or out of scope for the project. Keys are required for the following codes:
These code keys should be delivered in an Excel or .csv file if possible.
If you deliver your item data in a separate, delimited text file, please be sure that the file contains column headers that will be easy to interperet. If item data will be embedded in MARC records, you will need to provide a mapping to indicate which sub-field contains each of the item level data elements. Please see Data extract for more information and next steps.
