            FYI:

                 Cataloging and Acquisitions have different holding shelves for books going to
                 Marking so titles can be hard to locate in Marking. Paperbacks are collected
                 from holding shelves and routed directly to Binding.

              Title Search using Builder (Example 1)
              Builder allows you to specify fields for keyword searching, in both composite
              searches and single-field searches.


              Indexes can be used individually or in combination to build a more specific
              search. To do a combination title and author search:

              1. Type in the search term(s) that you want to find in the Search For box.
              (Punctuation and case are ignored)

              2. Select from the drop down list to search all the search terms, any of the search
              terms, or the search terms as a phrase.

              3. Select the data fields in which you want to search from the Search in drop
              down list.
              4. Select which Boolean operator you want applied to the next search
              statement(s), if applicable: AND, OR, or NOT. If you are adding additional search
              statements, you must click on a Boolean operator.




                             Type in the additional search terms that you want to find in the Search
                             For field and repeat lines 2-3. Click on the Do Search button.

              Non-Keyword indexes are all left-anchored. The entry term is indexed
              character-by-character from left to right. You must know the exact wording of
              the title for this search, but you do not need to know whether the title is a
              series, a title-page title, or a variant title. (The results of a search will vary
              depending on whether you enter the complete title or a partial title in the
              Search for box.)

                    Title<indexes all bibliographic records

                    Journal Title<indexes only serial records

                     Acquired Cataloging as a practice is known as monographs copy
                     cataloging or copy cataloging.
                    Acquisitions: Department which orders, receives and processes some
                     categories of titles (additions to the collection such as additional copies,
                     volumes to existing titles, etc., as well as cataloging PromptCat materials
                     (purchased cataloging records) and titles with DLC records.
                    Acquisitions Mode (Module): The technical module or back door to the
                     GIL OPAC which is used by Acquisitions to complete acquisitions

                    Adjustment: An item which has been pulled from its location and upon
                     completion of database work will need re-marking (labeling).
                    Analytics: Analytics are individual monographic titles which are part of
                     either a larger serial or monographic set. Analytics keep some of their
                     unique properties (own bib record, own item record) but take the call
                     number and volume numbering from the larger entity. Often thought of in
                     terms of parents (the larger entity) and children (the analytics).
                    Associated Research Facilities: Off-campus and on-campus UGA
                     facilities which contain libraries and collections such as Vet Med Reading
                     Room (on campus), Owens Library also know as Environmental Design

                    Barcode: encoded set of lines which is placed on item and the code is
                     input into a matching item record in GIL. The barcode is used to charge
                     out materials as well as for some processing.




Glossary, Compiled by Robin Fay, 2007
                    BIB Formats Standard Manual: Indepth online and print manual of
                     MARC coding.
                    Bib record (bibliographic record): Descriptive record coded in MARC.
                    Bibliographic: descriptive data about a title.
                    Bibliographic record: a MARC coded record containing descriptive data
                     about a copy.
                    Bibliographical references: A more generic term for bibliographies which
                     can also encompass suggested reading lists, etc.
                    Bibliography: a list of resources or citations which are usually located at
                     the end of a title.
                    Boolean logic: Developed by English mathematician George Boole, it
                     allows users to combine words or phrases to define searching in
                     databases, such as library catalogs. Generally thought of in terms of and

                     publisher or after the fact, by the libraries. Bound withs have individual GIL
                     bib records for each title, but only one MFHD and one item record (as they
                     all reside in the same binding). Bound withs have a specific procedure to
                     create the appropriate links and notes for the OPAC.
                    Branch Libraries: see Associated Research Facilities.

                    Cataloging: Organizing materials & information in a logical and consistent
                     way to facilitate ease of access.
                    Cataloging Mode (Module): The technical module or back door to the

                     bibliographic, holdings, or item records.
                    Cataloged: A title in GIL is considered cataloged when the physical copy
                     and record have both been reviewed and verified by a Cataloger, with

                     cataloging which is processed by Acquisitions. A cataloged record in GIL
                     will contain a 910 CA (Original cataloging); 945 CA (Acquired Cataloging;
                     Acquisitions Cataloging); or 945 CC (PromptCat). Cataloging also occurs
                     in Serials Cataloging (Serials, Periodicals), Music Cataloging (Scores,
                     Audio CDs, etc.), and by the Principal Cataloger (Databases, E-books,

                     verso.
                    Connexion: The technical module or “back door” to OCLC WorldCat
                     which enables those with authorization to download, edit, create and/or
                     delete records.

                    Corrall: To gather up issues or volumes. Generally thought of in terms of
                     serials but also in terms of Fasicles.

              D

                    Database Maintenance (DBM): The maintaining of data through
                     investigation and correction of records as needed. AT UGA, DBM work is
                     done in the Maintenance Unit and by others within the Cataloging
                     Department. DBM is a Section within the Cataloging Department, which is
                     divided into 2 Units: Maintenance and Marking.
                    Delimiter: A code used to distinguish the beginning of a subfield. In GIL
                     and OCLC represented as ‡; however, in writing and procedures
                     sometimes referred to as $ or |. However ‡ is the character that should
                     always be entered in GIL.
                    DLC: A record in OCLC (WorldCat) or GIL which has a 040 containing
                     DLC. DLC records are Library of Congress records. Generally, these are
                     considered higher quality records, but not always!

                     locally in DBM.
                    Endeavor: The company who created the library catalog software
                     Voyager (we use it for our catalog, called GIL). Endeavor has recently
                     been purchased by Ex-Libris, another software company.
                    Exclude location: A GIL login/location (not a libraries location) which
                     does not display in the OPAC. Used mainly by Acquisitions staff.

              F

                    Fascicle: An unique category of material which typically are originally
                     published in a paperback format in parts. Once a volume (fascicle) is
                     completed by the publisher, the individual pieces are corralled (gathered)
                     to be bound together.
                    Folio: An oversized book. For UGA purposes, Folio generally (exceptions
                     include some music materials and CML materials) is materials which are
                     30 cm + in the 300 (physical description) field of the bib record. Folio
                     materials receive a shelving prefix (‡k Folio in the holdings/MFHD record)
                     Double Folio (‡k Ff in the shelving prefix) is 60 cm +.

                    GALIN: a static snapshot of the previous library online catalog. In 1999,
                     the UGA Libraries purchased Voyager from Endeavor and migrated data
                     from GALIN to GIL. A data snapshot was taken of GALIN, which can be
                     helpful in dealing with older records from pre-migration (1999). As GALIN
                     is a snapshot, the information is no longer updated, and in some cases the
                     information was lost.

                    Inventory: Verification that a pre-1995 monographic item in hand matches
                     the record in GIL and that a shelflist card has been pulled. An inventoried
                     record will have a note in a 910 field INVYY initials. Serials and other
                     formats may use a different code for inventory.

                     has assigned a lost status), lost and paid (item has been lost by the patron
                     and has been paid for), cataloging review (a status used by Cataloging
                     staff to get materials returned back to them for review), etc.

                     locations where materials are located. Information from the bib record
                     (049), the MFHD location, and the Permanent Location (item record)
                     correlate to form a title‟s location.
                    Looseleaf (also known as Looseleaf for updating): An unique category
                     of material which typically are originally published in a notebook or binder
                     and have new replacement pages (sometimes whole sections) issued by
                     the publisher at a later time, with the intent to have old parts replaced with

                     projects requiring GIL work are often part of DBM‟s workflow.
                    MARC: (MAchine Readable Cataloging): a type of record coding which
                     allows information to be shared in a variety of formats.
                    MARC Field: In MARC, a data field which begins with a MARC tag,
                     followed by indicators and then coded data. A MARC field is the entire
                     field line in the GIL Cataloging module, e.g., 245 10 ‡a Prisons under the
                     gavel : ‡b the federal court takeover of Georgia prisons / ‡c Bradley

                    t.p. The title page of a monograph (book).
                    Transfer: Transferring material from one location to another, which
                     involves work on the records in the online catalog.
                    Treatment: Generally, Monographic vs. Serial. Treatment is stated in the
                     MFHD (holding record) for Monographic sets, Serials, and Periodicals,
