==Procedures for all formats==
 +
# Break file from .mrc to .mrk (be sure to check if character set needs to be converted from MARC8 to UTF8: LDR/09 is blank in MARC8 records, "a" in Unicode records)
 +
# Make back-up copy of unedited .mrk file
 +
# Open working .mrk file in MarcEditor
 +
## Get report of all MARC fields in file and compare each with Folger TIND use (MARC field use.xlsx) to identify conflicts and unnecessary fields
 +
## Validate MARC to find machine-identifiable problems
 +
## Look for common errors (e.g. inconsistent or incorrect MARC 752) that won't be found by machine
 +
## If loading additional records for the same file, check that resource's list of changes, below, against the content to make sure they're still accurate and relevant
 +
## Make any necessary adjustments to the tasks in Tools > Manage tasks > Task Actions > Edit task > [Dataset name]
 +
## Run Tools > Assigned tasks > [Dataset name]
 +
## Run any other relevant MarcEdit tasks (e.g. replacing degree sign in ESTC formats)
 +
## Save as MARC21 XML
 +
# Open in Notepad++
 +
## Run Macroexpress macro to replace LDR with 000 and control field spaces with backslashes
 +
## If replacing existing records, run Macroexpress macros to delete the 005
 +
# Batch upload in TIND
 +
## For large record sets, first use MarcEdit to split file into sets of about 1,000 records each
 +
## Schedule uploads half an hour apart
 +

Note: punctuation in 245$a varies, so search by field "F#:245$c Martin Wiggins and Catherine Richardson (eds)" to find all nine in MarcEdit.

**Record NICN000312: Nichols Collection has so many scattered issues that the "Library has:" note exceeds the byte limit for a single field, but the machine-generated split into two fields needs to be moved earlier in the first field (it happens after "Oct." in "issue 7000 (Oct. 31, 1723)" but needs to be moved even earlier because the change from "Library has:" to "Nichols Collection has:" adds characters)
 +
**Record NICN000123: remove from record set because it will error out (matches the existing 035 $a(OCoLC)643152512 of the Burney Collection version) and is a very minimal record by comparison; add link and Nichols info to the Burney record (Nichols only has issues for 1695 and 1696, but Burney lacks most of these, and the ones it does have are scanned from microfilm).

MARC records supplied by vendors require editing before they can be batch-loaded into the catalog. This page describes edits that need to be made to all vendor-supplied records.

Procedures for all formats

  1. Break file from .mrc to .mrk (be sure to check if character set needs to be converted from MARC8 to UTF8: LDR/09 is blank in MARC8 records, "a" in Unicode records)
  2. Make back-up copy of unedited .mrk file
  3. Open working .mrk file in MarcEditor
    1. Get report of all MARC fields in file and compare each with Folger TIND use (MARC field use.xlsx) to identify conflicts and unnecessary fields
    2. Validate MARC to find machine-identifiable problems
    3. Look for common errors (e.g. inconsistent or incorrect MARC 752) that won't be found by machine
    4. If loading additional records for the same file, check that resource's list of changes, below, against the content to make sure they're still accurate and relevant
    5. Make any necessary adjustments to the tasks in Tools > Manage tasks > Task Actions > Edit task > [Dataset name]
    6. Run Tools > Assigned tasks > [Dataset name]
    7. Run any other relevant MarcEdit tasks (e.g. replacing degree sign in ESTC formats)
    8. Save as MARC21 XML
  4. Open in Notepad++
    1. Run Macroexpress macro to replace LDR with 000 and control field spaces with backslashes
    2. If replacing existing records, run Macroexpress macros to delete the 005
  5. Batch upload in TIND
    1. For large record sets, first use MarcEdit to split file into sets of about 1,000 records each
    2. Schedule uploads half an hour apart

Additional procedures for printed resources

Fields to add

  • 500__ $a This record was provided by a vendor. It may contain incorrect or incomplete information. $5 DFo
  • 980__ $a BIB
  • 983__ $a Not-vault

Additional procedures for online facsimiles

Delete:

  • 506 Restrictions on access (Folger reserves this for physical restrictions; license restrictions are implicit in 852$h)
  • 538 ("Mode of access: Internet" and "Mode of access: WWW" are no longer necessary)

Replace, if necessary:

  • LDR/06: do not use "m" for digital or digitized documents (electronic aspects are coded in 006 and 007 instead)
  • LDR/06: for digitized manuscripts, use codes t, d, and f (Folger practice is contrary to OCLC, which considers digitized manuscripts to be "published" resources)
  • 008/23: use "o" ("online") not "s" ("electronic")
  • 006 for digital and digitized documents: m|||||o||d|||||||| (that is, online document, audience not specified, but many ended up being loaded with bytes 05 and 06 reversed, making them target audience = "o", which isn't a valid value, and form of item = no attempt to code, which at least isn't wrong)
  • 007 for digital scans of documents: cr\un|---uuuua (in theory, "color" and "antecedent/source" could be coded something other than "unknown" but in practice, we want the records to remain valid if a vendor replaces page images scanned from microfilm with page images scanned from the original)
  • 007 for native ebooks: cr\un|---uuuun
  • Link text in 852 other than $u if they don't make sense for the Folger catalog

Move:

  • Vendor 001 and 003 move to 035, in this format and order (unless a different match point is required): (003)001

Add:

 245%% $$h[electronic resource]
 336__ $$atext$$btxt$$2rdacontent
 337__ $$acomputer$$bc$$2rdamedia
 338__ $$aonline resource$$bcr$$2rdacarrier

 980__ $$aBIB
 983__ $$aOnline

Don't worry about:

  • 040$d (because editing by Folger staff is automatically recorded in TIND record history and manually recorded in MARC 583)

Resources with vendor-supplied record sets

ACLS Humanities E-Book collection

  • 5,472 records (plus 2 duplicates)
  • Remove duplicates from original .mrc file based on 035
  • Run MARCValidator on deduped source file to make sure nothing more needs to be added to the MarcEdit tasks
    • Don't worry about the repeated 010 fields
  • Delete 776$q
  • Replace =830 \\$aACLS with =830 \0$aACLS
  • Change =830 \0$aATLA Special Series. 0$aACLS Humanities E-Book. to have a separate 830 for $aACLS Humanities E-Book
  • Change =830 \0$aATLA Special Series. 0$aAmerican philosophy series ;$vno. 7. to have a separate 830 for American philosophy series
  • Delete MARC 506
  • Delete MARC 538
  • Delete MARC 773
  • Replace LDR/07 d or a with m
  • Change 008/23 (form of item) from "s - electronic" to the more specific "o - online"
  • Replace 006 with m|||||o||d||||||||
  • Replace 007 with cr\un|---uuuun (most are okay as-is, but about two dozen have too many characters in the string)
  • Delete 856$z
  • Add RDA 33X fields:
    • 336__ $a text $b txt $2 rdacontent
    • 337__ $a computer $b c $2 rdamedia
    • 338__ $a online resource $b cr $2 rdacarrier
  • Add standard HBCN, 583, 980, 983
  • Add 852__ $$aUS-DFo$$bEleRes$$hAvailable onsite only but use the list of Open Access titles to batch change the $h to Open Access after records are loaded.

Adam Matthew databases

Available from https://www.amdigital.co.uk/support/marc-records, login not required.
Products with updated records (i.e. updated since the initial release) will include an update date in the title. The zipped folder will contain the updated records.
For updates made after May 2019, the zipped folder will contain the updated records as well as an Update Notes text file detailing the changes.
NOTE: As discussed with Researcher Services, we currently do not upload records for individual titles in Adam Matthew resources, just the record for the resource itself (the individual records are too non-standard to be helpful).

Early Modern England

  • 772 records (none uploaded)
  • LDR always coded a, p, or r, never "t", so manuscripts can only be determined from 245$k such as "Manuscripts, essays, memoirs and music" or "Commonplace books; Essays" (which the database uses to generate the "Document type" field)
  • All have encoded date nuuu and imprint "Marlborough, Wiltshire : Adam Matthew Digital" (except for seven that also have parts of the original imprint in the 264).
  • 6XX fields are all non-standard (except for 653, which is just keywords)

Literary Manuscripts Leeds

  • 190 records (none uploaded)
  • LDR is mix of "a" and "t" (though originals are all manuscripts)
  • Fixed field date always coded for the database itself
  • Imprint is always for the database itself
  • 300 is always for the original manuscript
  • Most 650s should be 655s (and don't have a $v)

Literary Print Culture

  • 1,908 records (none uploaded)
  • LDR is always "a"
  • Fixed field date always coded for the database itself
  • Imprint is for the database itself
  • 300 is always "1 online resource"
  • Nothing to indicate they're manuscripts (245$k is a category, e.g. =245 00$aBond following illegal publication of almanacs :$kLegal record; Financial record$g1723.
  • Keywords in 653 provide the only 6XX access

Perdita Manuscripts, 1500-1700

  • 216 records (none uploaded)
  • LDR varies: a, p, t (but all are manuscripts)
  • 008 and imprint are for the online resource
  • 300 is "1 online resource"
  • 6XX are non-standard (plus 653 with keywords)

Shakespeare in performance

  • 1,138 records (none uploaded)
  • LDR always "a" (material includes manuscripts, graphic materials, published texts)
  • 008, 264, and 300 are all for the electronic resource
  • 245$k provides the general category (e.g. "Photograph", "Costume design", "Autograph; Manuscript; Letters")
  • 534 correctly has "$p Reproduction of:" but dates in $c are inconsistent, and ISBD punctuation is lacking
  • Keywords in 653 provide the only 1XX, 6XX, or 7XX access

Shakespeare's Globe Archive

  • 1,759 records for documents, 26 records for non-musical recordings (none uploaded)
  • LDR/06 is "i" for sound files (oral history interviews) and "a" for everything else (incl. props, graphic materials, manuscripts)
  • 008, 264, and 300 are for the online resource
  • 100 has only $a and $e
  • 534 correctly has "$p Reproduction of:" but dates in $c are inconsistent, and ISBD punctuation is lacking
  • The only 7XX is a constant "710 2\$aAdam Matthew Digital (Firm),$edigitiser."

Virginia Company Archives

  • 2,899 records (none uploaded)
  • LDR/06 is always "t"
  • 008, 264, and 300 are all for the online resource
  • In all but about 20 records, the 245$a is the call number, 245$k is "Manuscripts" (even when item is a printed picture).
  • 520 is used for the item title
  • 6XX is non-standard

Gale databases

MARC files available only by request, except for British Literary Manuscripts

British Literary Manuscripts

  • from https://support.gale.com/marc/, login not required)
  • 17 records for source microfilm collection titles (leads to description and targeted search)
  • 7 records for targeted searches for each of seven parts of the Medieval literary and historical manuscripts in the Cotton Collection, British Library, London (links break after the tilde when followed in TIND ILS, but can be copy-and-pasted from the MARC)
  • In addition to Online facsimiles changes described above:
    • Delete 538
    • Replace =[LOCATIONID] with =wash46354
    • Replace existing 260 (which is for the microfilm) with 260 for Gale Cengage Learning, coded as current/latest publisher (that is, 260 3_ $a [Farmington Hills, Michigan] : $b Gale Cengage Learning, $c [2009?]). Note: Gale Cengage Learning now rebranded as Gale a Cengage Company, but BLM hasn't been updated (yet).
    • 008 change Date 1 to 2009, change 008/15-17 to miu, change 008/23 from "s" to "o"
    • 006 and 007 are okay as-is
    • Replace any existing 300 with 300 $a 1 online resource; add same to records that lack a 300

Burney Collection Newspapers

  • 1,057 records
  • Must transform from MARC8 to UTF8
  • Already has the wash46354 suffix in URL
  • Remember that many 008s are coded for serials, not books
  • Delete the one instance of ";$c?°." then run MarcEdit Degree sign format fix
  • Remove duplicate 035s from source file (e.g. 35 records with =035\\$ageneral)
  • Change 006 to m|||||o||d||||||||
  • Change 007 to cr\un|---uuuua
  • Change 008/23 from "s" to "o"
  • Add 33X
  • Delete any existing 533$n
  • Update 520s for STC, Wing, and ESTC?
  • Move 590$a to 533$n
  • Delete 648
  • Change 985 to 509

Eighteenth century collections online

  • 184,371 records in three separate files
  • Must transform from MARC8 to UTF8
  • Already has the wash46354 suffix in URL
  • Remember that many 008s are coded for serials, not books
  • Need to return to this after BSLW processing; so far only did six test records rather than check the whole file for errors and anomalies
    • Would normally run the MarcEdit Degree sign format fix, but opting not to for the small batch of test records in order to verify that BSLW's script is still working.
    • Delete existing 852s and replace with FSL custom
    • Create custom 035 (ECCO)[001]
    • Change 006 to m|||||o||d||||||||
    • Change 007 to cr\un|---uuuua
    • Make 008/23 be "o" (unless LDR coded for Maps or Visual Materials, in which case 008/29 = "o")
    • Delete any existing 533$n
    • Deliberately did NOT add 33X fields or update 510s
    • Standard TIND transformations

Nichols Newspapers Collection

  • 660 records
  • Must transform from MARC8 to UTF8
  • Already has the wash46354 suffix in URL
  • Already has 3XX fields
  • Already has "o" in 008/23
    • Many instances of Date type "u" = Continuing resource status unknown, with Date2 = uuuu (no need to change; just be aware of)
  • Change 006 to m|||||o||d||||||||
  • Change 007 to cr\un|---uuuua
  • Add 245$h [electronic resource]
  • Add HBCN and 583's for vendor records
  • Add 852 with "Available offsite via https://request.folger.edu"
  • Delete 856$3 (it's always "Gale, Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century Nichols Newspapers Collection")
  • Convert all instances of 590 "Library has:" to "Nichols Newspapers Collection has:"
    • Then convert all instances of 590 to 500
  • Convert 500 "Reproduction of the originals from Bodleian Libraries." to "Reproduction of the originals from the Nichols Newspapers Collection, Bodleian Library."
  • Delete all 6XX $2fast headings (this will remove all the MARC 648s)
  • Delete all 655s (all but one is non-standard)
  • Delete all 650s with Ind2=4
  • Okay to leave MARC 740 as-is (there are only a few, and they really are Related and Analytical titles)
  • Change 752$a United Kingdom to Great Britain
  • Change 752$aEngland $dLondon to $aGreat Britain $bEngland $dLondon
  • Change 752$aGreat Britain $bLondon $dEngland to 752$aGreat Britain $bEngland $dLondon
  • Change 752$aGreat Britain $dLondon to $aGreat Britain $bEngland $dLondon
  • Delete all instances of MARC 850 (they're MARC codes for other holding institutions)
  • Delete all 9XX fields: 906, 952, 985, 991
  • Move 001 to 035 prefaced by "(Nichols)"
  • Delete 003
  • EDITS TO MAKE BY HAND:
    • Record NICN000312: Nichols Collection has so many scattered issues that the "Library has:" note exceeds the byte limit for a single field, but the machine-generated split into two fields needs to be moved earlier in the first field (it happens after "Oct." in "issue 7000 (Oct. 31, 1723)" but needs to be moved even earlier because the change from "Library has:" to "Nichols Collection has:" adds characters)
    • Record NICN000123: remove from record set because it will error out (matches the existing 035 $a(OCoLC)643152512 of the Burney Collection version) and is a very minimal record by comparison; add link and Nichols info to the Burney record (Nichols only has issues for 1695 and 1696, but Burney lacks most of these, and the ones it does have are scanned from microfilm).

British Theatre, Music, and Literature: High and Popular Culture (from NCCO: Nineteenth Century Collections Online)

  • 608 records
  • Convert from MARC8 to UTF8 character set
  • Change 006 to m|||||o||d||||||||
  • Leave 007 as-is
  • Delete all MARC 506s
  • Delete 563
  • Convert 590 to 500
  • 600s, 650s, and 651s are okay as-is: they're all LCSH
  • Delete all 655s except the two with $2rbgenr
  • 740s are okay as-is: they really are analytical and related titles
  • Change 752 $aEngland$dLondon. to $aGreat Britain$bEngland$dLondon.
  • Delete 856$3
  • Delete 886
  • Delete both instances of 035$a(OCoLC)830944845 and both instances of 035$a(OCoLC)830989556 (don't delete the records, just the 035s that make them look identical to the system: they really are slightly different).
  • Do the usual Folger and TIND transformations

Loeb Classical Library

  • 240 records (actually 244, but included duplicates; file last updated 2022-07-12)
  • Records available for download here: https://www.loebclassics.com/page/faq/frequently-asked-questions;#18
  • LDR/23 is already "o"
  • 006 is always m\\\\\o\\d\\\\\\\\ (so ought to be okay as is, but better to have m|||||o||d|||||||| so that there's one fewer TIND replacement of blanks needed)
  • 007 is usually cr\cn\, but also cr\cnu---unuuu and cr\bn|||||||||: replace all with cr\un|---uuuuu
  • Begin 035s with (loeb)
  • Delete 049 (local to Loeb)
  • Delete 082 (it's Dewey classification, would have kept it anyway but there are some invalid indicators that can't be machine-replaced)
  • Add 245$h
  • Delete $2fast headings
  • OK to keep 380 b/c doesn't currently display and we might do something with it later (it's "Form of Work")
  • Delete 385 (Audience)
  • Change 500-ind1 = 0 to blank
  • Change 500-ind2 = 0 to blank
  • Delete 538 (it's always "Mode of access: World Wide Web.")
  • Delete 648
  • Delete 653
  • Delete 655 (all are either non-standard, fast, or lcsh)
  • Change 720 to 710 (there's only one)
  • Change 740 02 to 246 3\
  • Delete 740 0\
  • Delete 776 (unnecessary: doesn't currently display, info already elsewhere in record, potentially confusing for users b/c FSL doesn't necessarily have the paper book form)
  • Add 852 "Available onsite only"
  • Invalid MARC for BSLW test:
    • 700-ind 1 is \ but sometimes should be 0, sometimes should be 1

Oxford Scholarly Editions Online (OSEO)

  • 272 records
  • Remove individual records for each volume of Martin Wiggins and Catherine Richardson, British Drama 1533–1642: A Catalogue in favor of one record for the entire set (rec id 544900): subject headings are identical, and tables of contents are very incomplete (e.g. v. 1 covers 1533-1566 with entries for 440 plays, but table of contents only has entries for 37 plays, and goes to the start of 1537). Note: punctuation in 245$a varies, so search by field "F#:245$c Martin Wiggins and Catherine Richardson (eds)" to find all nine in MarcEdit.
  • Note: MARC 008 for both volumes of The correspondence of Sir Philip Sidney is incorrect. Vendor record has 130909s2012\\\\enka\\\fo|\\\o0|0\0\eng|d but should have 130909s2012\\\\enka\\\fob\\\\001\0\eng|d.
