Holdings records discussion

Will there be a Holdings Editor as part of atCult's integration. At this point, the MARC native holdings editor is not planned for MARCCat. How critical is it to maintain MARC Holdings for the early implementers? Is that a "deal-breaker"? What would it take to map?

  • Duke is not an early implementer, but Dennis commented that if a full MARC record can be generated from a FOLIO holdings, that is great, but probably a workaround that would be better served, by simply building MARC Holdings into FOLIO in the first place.
  • Can FOLIO have a native MARC Holdings that can be used only if needed.
  • Theodor asked for a use case for the extra data? What is in a MARC Holdings? What role does MARC play that is vital? Lynn said it is an issue of granularity that MARC Holdings offers that is not present in the current FOLIO Holdings. Fixed field values, LDR values, fields that are in MARC Holdings, are not represented in FOLIO's Holdings.
  • Lisa from Chalmers, early implementers, school. They do not have holdings records. They have Bibliographic records and item record. They do their cataloging in the national union catalog. They do not care about what form the holdings information is in.
  • If we are going to recreate a MARCHoldings in FOLIO Holdings, is it worth it?
  • If we want to have MARCHoldings - where will these be created and edited?
  • Should this be addressed in the MARCCat subgroup.
  • Christie - FOLIO should allow for a MARCHoldings store, and represent them in Inventory. This is an issue for the data model.
  • Mary Alexander - "Voted" for maintaining MARCHoldings.
  • Recommendation: MARCCat should have a MARC Holdings editing capacity, MARC Holdings storage, synchronization between MARC Holdings and FOLIO holdings display. Can we live with a simplification of of MARC Holdings represented in the FOLIO Inventory/Holdings?
  • How critical is this for v.1 to the early implementers?
  • Laura and Lynn will convey this to Charlotte and take it to the MARCCat subgroup.
