    Serials Solutions E-Books
    Information on MARC records and other aspects of Serials Solutions E-Book collections are documented here.


    Below are the details concerning Serials Solutions collection requests and related information.

    Cervantes Project
    • Requested November 29, 2014 (DTH)
    • Added to SerSol KB December 2014
    • Records arrived in December 2014 SerSol load (13 records)
    • MARC quality: headings not authorized forms, records otherwise not of high quality
    • Recommendation: Load. Records should be seen as disposable.

    Clearinghouse Books
    • Requested November 29, 2014 (DTH)
    • Added to SerSol KB December 2014
    • Records arrived in December 2014 SerSol load (67 records)
    • MARC quality: appears to be fine.
    • Recommendation: Load (DS - 2014-12-15)


    DOAB (Directory of Open Access Books)
    • Requested November 29, 2014 (DTH)
    • Added to SerSol KB December 2014
    • Records arrived in December 2014 SerSol load (2261 records)
    • MARC quality
      • Some headings verify, others from different authority DB (i.e. Firth, Stewart, 1944- is not from LC/LAC/BL, but from Australia/BNF,or another authority DB)
      • Punctuation on headings is off: entire name headings as "=700 1\$aStollberg ,Jochen." - comma in wrong place.
      • Headings also include incorrectly encoded parentheticals such as =100 1\$aNunes, Sandra Odebrecht Vargas (org.) and =700 1\$aVandenberghe, Christophe (ed.)
    • Recommendation: Load. Records should be seen as disposable. May need to delete if heading problems have adverse effects on the rest of the DB. (DS - 2014-12-15)
    Knowledge Unlatched
    • Requested November 29, 2014 (DTH)
    • Added to SerSol KB December 2014 (27 records)
    • All of these are also covered under DOAB
    • MARC records
      • Headings and rest of record quality good
      • In comparison to existing KU records from the project page, the SerSol records are AACR2 but the KU records are RDA and have 520 fields for summaries. The KU records are better, but not enough to justify individual attention.
    • Recommendation: Load. Delete the KU records already in the catalogue and depend on SerSol for updates. (DS - 2014-12-15)
    O'Reilly Open Books
    • Requested November 29, 2014 (DTH)
    • Added to SerSol KB December 2014 (48 records)
    • MARC records
      • Good quality MARC records (AACR2)
    • Recommendation: Load. (DS - 2014-12-15)
