Here are guidelines for loading sets of records for electronic resources that your library subscribes to or buys on its own, outside of OhioLINK. Some publishers and vendors provide sets of bibliographic records for their e-resources, such as ebrary, JSTOR, and Serials Solutions.
These records require special attention if your library is loading such a set to its catalog. If you contribute these records to the Central Catalog, there are two important considerations:
(1) Control number: Field 001 is the primary match point for records in the Central Catalog. Make sure that the records have unique control numbers in 001, and not 035, for example. Also, make sure that the control numbers in 001 follow the standard format specified below.
(2) URL: Move URLs for local e-resources to 956, so that they display along with your institutional holdings. 956 information.
Or suppress: If you do not contribute these records to the Central Catalog, it doesn't matter how you process the control number and URL.
When loading records that have true OCLC numbers in field 001, you can contribute these records to the Central Catalog as usual (remember to put the URL in 956). Examples:
JSTOR: 45446918 NetLibrary: 247511373
All-numeric control number: Records with all-numeric numbers in 001, which look like OCLC numbers but are not real OCLC numbers, may erroneously match real OCLC numbers causing invalid record overlays.
If you are loading such records, either:
(a) suppress these records from the Central Catalog, or
(b) insert an agreed-upon alphabetic prefix or suffix and make sure that the prefix or suffix is retained after load to Central
You need to understand how your load program will work on these records. Many Innovative load programs strip all alphabetic prefixes from 001, leaving an all-numeric number that might conflict with an OCLC number. Most Innovative load programs retain alphabetic suffixes in 001.
If you load such records, be sure that the 001 field will load in the standard way shown in the table below. The point is to get everyone to use THE SAME format so that records for the same resource will merge in Central, and so they won’t accidentally merge with unrelated OCLC records. Everyone must use THE SAME PREFIX OR SUFFIX for each record set. Table of non-OCLC record sets and recommended 001 format.
Note that libraries that DO NOT want to contribute the records to Central can go on doing whatever they want, so long as the records are suppressed from Central.
In order for records from the same non-OCLC source to match up at Central and avoid duplicate records, DMSC recommends the following pre-processing on 001:
(1) Move the control number to field 001, if not already there (some vendors put control numbers into a field other than 001, such as 035).
(2) If the vendor uses an alphabetic prefix, insert the digit "1" before the prefix, so that your load program will not strip the prefix.
(3) If the vendor uses an alphabetic suffix, make sure that your loader retains the suffix.
(4) Move the URL to 956.

Remember that an alternative is to load these records locally but suppress them from Central.
Libraries with load profile training can manipulate their 001 fields as shown below. Libraries without load profile training can use the MarcEdit program to edit 001. Instructions to edit 001 field using MarcEdit program.
