30Authority questions for the group Khalilah Gambrell
  1. What do you typically populate in MARC 001? 
    1. [LCCN] | OCA | OR non-LC > <<vendor abbreviation>> <<vendor generated id>>  
    2. What about HRIDs? Will support in a future phase once we implement local Authority support.   
  2. What Authority MARC fields are required? 
    1. At minimum, 1XX, Leader, 008
  3. With your current/former ILS , which MARC fields are the most challenging to manage? (e.g. data corruption)
    1. Include in testing: loading random fields duplication
    2. RW: Sierra - reference in half latin and non-latin > non-latin characters were not recognized. Need to determine an approach as this is different from bib records.
    3. LR: Ligatures/diacritics.
  4. Should we consider any punctuation in regards to validation?
    1. [TW/LR: Do not worry about it]

  • Other topics discussed: upon loading Authority files; identify the authority source [partition]
  • Additional questions will be asked with homework due June 9th
