Stand-alone CD-ROMs are cataloged according to cataloging rules and MARC21 standards on appropriate format. CD-ROMs that accompany print material are cataloged on format determined to be primary.
- If CD-ROM arrives in a holder inside a book or is otherwise not in a jewel case, place it in one. If there is a cardboard holder which has text about the CD, label that too and keep it with the jewel case in which you have placed the CD.
- Affix a call number label to the upper left corner of the jewel case for CD-ROMs. Write call number in pencil on the label so that jewel cases for discarded CDs can be easily re-used for other titles. Format call number as in this example:
LawBarcode should be placed next to the call number label.
- For CD-ROMs that accompany books:
- In item record for book, description should be "Base vol." for single volumes.
- In item record for CD-ROM, description should be "CD-ROM." Make Koren the temporary location code and update item status and collection code based on format.
- Use a single holding record, adding separate 866s for Base vol. and CD-ROM.
- In the book, place a label on the CD holder or above the barcode:
