Some Marc fields are specific to serials. These are summarised here, however the Glucksman library commonly only uses a few of these.

When looking for records to download you will notice that there are two ways to catalogue serials:

  1. Successive entry - Each title its given its own record. Links are created between records using the 780 and 785 fields. This is the AACR2 approach.
  2. Latest entry - This is a pragmatic approach which reflects the libararies holdings. The record uses the latest title and lists the other titles in the 247 field.

The Glucksman Library uses the successive approach.


(R) = a repeatable field.
(NR) = a non-repeatable field.

Leader:
Record status: n (new record) or c (copied record).
Type of record: a language material.
Bibligraphical level: s serial.

008 (Anything mentioned in 008 needs to be mentioned in body of record too.)

♣ 1 If an item is continuing in publication and continuing to be recieved enter 999.
♣ 2 Most journals are created in an electronic format and only later are printed to paper.
♣ 3 These have to be entered in alphabetical order so there is no way to indicate prime content. Therefore, if the other contents are minor, use the prime code only.
♣ 4 Successive entry = each title has its own record.
Latest entry = record uses latest title and lists others.

If using the 'Latest entry' approach to cataloguing serials multiple ISSNs will be entered here.

Glucksman Library House rule: General material designation in square brackets is placed at the end of the title in the 245.

Note that this differs to AACR2 rules where the general material designation in square brackets comes immediately after the main title and before any further information, e.g. subtitles, statement of responsibility etc. (AACR2 2002 rev. ed., 7.1B)

Examples of GMDs for serials:

electronic resource
microform

"If the title proper consists solely of the name of a corporate body, conference, etc., supply a brief addition in the language of the title proper as other title information to explain the title."

[date] if unsure of date ; [193-?] for 1930 decade ; [18--?] for century 2 places of publication:

  • 2 in Ireland just use first
  • 2 in U.S.A. just 1st
  • 1 in U.S.A., 1 in Ireland, only first place, unless 2nd is in Ireland.

"If the name of publisher, distributor, etc., changes on a subsequent issue or part and this change does not require a new description, give the later name in a note if considered to be important." (AACR2 2002 rev. ed., 12.4D2)

300 Physical description - Print format
300 ## $aNo. of volumes and/or pagination :$billustrative matter ;$csize

300 ## $axviii, 320 p. ;$c32 cm.
300 ## $a1 computer laser optical disk ;$c4 3/4 in.

For serials it is difficult to add a specific number of volumes even if the publication has ceased. One reason for this is the practise of binding muliple volumes together as one. Therefore just use vol.

300 Physical description - microform
$a Record the number of physical units of a microform item and use one of the following terms:

  • 31 aperture cards
  • 1 microfilm cassette
  • 3 microfilm reels

If easily determined add the number of frames on a microfiche or microfiche set:

  • 3 microfiche (136 fr.)
  • 2 microfiches (ca. 120 fr. per set)
