Current Practices And Standards Of Cataloging Hebraica In Rlin, Heidi G. Lerner Sep 1994

Current Practices And Standards Of Cataloging Hebraica In Rlin, Heidi G. Lerner

Judaica Librarianship

Since 1988, approximately 21 institutions have input Hebraica records into RLIN utilizing its Hebrew script capability. These institutions have varying standards for the amount of Hebrew script and Romanization that they provide. Some institutions provide vernacular access only for the core fields that have been defined by RLIN; others provide vernacular access for main and ad d ed entries, notes, and subject headings as well. Some institutions do not provide Romanization for the statement of responsibility or beyond the title proper. These institutions have varying financial, technical, and policy constraints that have contributed to this diversity of procedures for inputting ...


Modifications Made By The New York Public Library To Rlin Hebraica Records, Claire Dienstag Sep 1994

Modifications Made By The New York Public Library To Rlin Hebraica Records, Claire Dienstag

Judaica Librarianship

In its Hebraica cataloging on RLIN, the Jewish Division of the New York Public Library aims for a complete "9114" cataloging category (CC) record, as specified by the Research Libraries Group. Derived records with a CC value of "9994", signifying a lower level of cataloging quality, are enhanced by romanizing field 245 #b, i.e., "other title" information. Field 245 #c (statement of responsibility) can remain unromanized, for the author's name in Latin characters appears in field 1 xx (main entry). Complete collation, appropriate subject headings, added entries and notes deemed necessary to describe a book's contents are ...


Hebrew Card Production From Rlin Records At The Klau Library, Laurel S. Wolfson Sep 1994

Hebrew Card Production From Rlin Records At The Klau Library, Laurel S. Wolfson

Judaica Librarianship

While the RUN bibliographic utility fully supports display and search capabilities of Hebrew script in bibliographic records, its card program is not able to produce cards that include Hebrew script. Hebrew Union College Library commissioned the writing of software to utilize existing RLIN functions to download Hebrew script records for local card production. However, modifications of the records are required to accommodate the idiosyncrasies of both RLIN and the local software.


Use Or Non-Use Of Parallel Linking Fields In Rlin For Hebrew-Script Access Points, Rosalie E. Katchen Sep 1994

Use Or Non-Use Of Parallel Linking Fields In Rlin For Hebrew-Script Access Points, Rosalie E. Katchen

Judaica Librarianship

RLIN tagging practice for Hebraic headings is examined in light of cataloging time and efficiency. It is argued that the rule that the roman heading must be a systematic romanization of the Hebrew heading in order for the two to be linked as parallel is inappropriate.


The Rlin Cataloging Category (Cc) Code And Hebraica Cataloging At Yeshiva University Library, Rebecca Malamud Sep 1994

The Rlin Cataloging Category (Cc) Code And Hebraica Cataloging At Yeshiva University Library, Rebecca Malamud

Judaica Librarianship

In doing Hebraica cataloging on RLIN, Yeshiva University (YU) librarians provide full title and statement of responsibility data in the original script. YU catalogers do not, however, provide full romanization of these elements, but stop after the title proper. The Research Libraries Group's definition of cataloging levels requires YU to code its records as less-than-full. It is argued in this paper that the Cataloging Category codes mask the quality of records containing complete bibliographic data in the original script, and that libraries in putting this data are penalized financially.
