Step 3: Determine format of bib record
 
Is the bib record for a paper copy?
Go to step 6
 
Is the bib record for a microform?
Go to step 7
 
If there are multiple bibliographical record formats available, use the microfiche bib record.
=============
Step 4:  Adding microfiche holdings to an existing Voyager bib record
 
 
007: add to reflect Microform. Use Asia microfiche project F7 macro to input.
 
008: do not change Date(s); do not change Form of item.
 
245: do not include ‡h [microform]
533: do not input
539: Delete if present.
583: if microform data present, move to Microform MFHD 843, ‡n
 
Save the bib record to Voyager

007: Examine default. Edit (if necessary) to reflect Microform in hand.
 
Multiple 007s in a downloaded bib record:
Multiple 007s are Ok in bib -- 500 note "Master microform held by: [SITE]." is justification. If this note is not present with multiple 007s, identify which 007 doesn't match the service copy (usually the second one) and delete it.
 
008: Ensure Form of item to set to "b"  ("b" = microfiche)
 
245: add ‡h [microform] if lacking after ‡a, ‡n ‡p; before ‡b, ‡c. Examples:

Create new MFHD using Asia microfiche MFHD.tem
 
Edit default 852 tag to new accession number; accession numbers maintained on LAN.
 
Annotate Excel file with note "Needs subject analysis" To input,
 
Paste in the 533 tag that you copied from the bib record
 
Delete the default 843 tag

Save MFHD to Voyager
 
Copy the MFHD number using ToolKit (needed for ITEM barcode)
 
Go to step 12
=============
Step 12: Procedures for adding the ITEM record
 
Create a single ITEM record for each MFHD.
 
With cursor in the default opening position, invoke the F10 Asia microfiche project macro. This will create an 11 digit barcode based on the MFHD number that you just copied.
 
Alternatively:
Type 1090 in the barcode bucket
Paste MFHD number into barcode bucket after the 1090
 
Example:    MFHD number 2167429  becomes   barcode 10902167429
 
Permanent location: ASIA D0 (Default, if set)
Item Type: Library Use Only (Default, if set)
 
Enter total number of individual microfiche into Pieces bucket at bottom of ITEM record
 
Save ITEM record to Voyager
 
If the barcode has already been used, you will get the prompt:
 
"The barcode you have chosen for this item is currently associated with another item.
Do you still wish to create the item with this barcode?"
 
Say "No" and change the 1090 in the barcode to 1091 [1092, etc.]
 
Go to step 13
=============
Step 13: Physical processing of pieces
 
Cross out S33300 on microfiche sleeve with acid-free pen.
 
Write new accession number (with prefix S) underneath old number.
 
If using old sleeve, rehouse multiple fiche to single acid-free microfiche sleeve. Use interleaving acid-free leaves. Maximum of 5 fiche per sleeve.
 
If using new sleeve(s), stamp the words
"ASIA
MICROFICHE"
on the front upper left corner, then write the new call number below the stamped words with acid-free pen.
 
Statistics: Count as one MFICHE title, count additional number of microfiche added.
