WHEN TO ADD THE BIB ID
A Bib ID (bibliographic identifier) is a unique number assigned to a bibliographic record.
1. Add the Bib ID to the worksheet (right center box ) if the item EXACTLY matches the description in the online record. This would be true for the following types of materials:
- Replacement copy
- Added copy
- A book in a multi-volume set
- Book is already owned by another UH System library
2. Do not add the Bib ID to worksheet for a new (or different) edition. While a bibliographic record may exist for another edition, the Bib ID belongs to that edition and that edition only.
To find the Bib ID number for a bibliographic record, click on Staff View (MARC) above the title in the online opac. The Bib ID number will be in the MARC 001 field.
Check with the Search⁄Order Section of the Acquisitions Department when you have questions.
