Order Record Standards (3/97)

MEMORANDUM

To: DMSC Representatives
From: Carol P. Hawks, Chair, OhioLINK Database Management & Standards Committee
Date: June 16, 1995
Subject: Change to Order Record Standards

As you are probably aware from the DMSC minutes, III has agreed to develop one of the fixed fields in the order record to meet new requirements articulated by the CIRM committee. To accommodate this new coding, the DMSC has devised a mechanism to incorporate the previous PUB TYPE field into the remaining three fixed fields (ACQ TYPE, ORDER TYPE, AND FORMAT). The DMSC/CIRM subcommittee is still working to define the CODE3 (formerly PUB TYPE). When that draft is available, it will be circulated for your comment.

In the interim, we are asking that you proceed to recode your database to reflect the changes to the other three fixed fields which have been redefined to incorporate values from the PUB TYPE field. The following chart will show you where those values should reside now. I have also attached a new version of the standards document.

We recognize the work involved in recoding your databases, but are asking that you implement these new standards for record beginning with the coming fiscal year, July 1, 1995. In order to facilitate this implementation date, we will not collect annual statistics as we did at the end of FY93. (We did not collect these statistics last year either.) In essence, the deadline that you must meet is to have the records for the coming year coded correctly by the end of the coming fiscal year (6-30-96). We will collect some version of the statistics for FY96.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this process. We certainly hope (and will do our part, to be sure) that this will be the last time you are asked to revise these codes. Please feel free to contact me or Anne Flint if you have any questions.

cc: Lead Implementors


PUB TYPE: The PUB TYPE describes the nature of the publication and can in certain cases describe the general content, but not the physical format. In addition to the standard codes listed here, OhioLINK libraries may define numeric codes for local use, with the understanding that they must be mappable to standard codes for OhioLINK reports and statistical analyses.
OLD CODENEW CODE/FIELDDESCRIPTORDEFINITION
mORD TYPE a,n,rmonographA nonserial publication. An item complete in one, or a finite number of, parts.
pORD TYPE pperiodicalA serial, usually containing articles or abstracts, published more frequently than annually, including newsletters.
nFORMAT nnewspaperA serial usually published daily or weekly on newsprint containg news articles.
lFORMAT llooseleafA publication updated regularly or irregularly by unbound, insertable pages.
sORD TYPE tmono serieA group of monographs, related by a series title, that are published indefinitely.
cORD TYPE scontinuatnAny serial that is not a periodical, newspaper, looseleaf, or monographic series, includes annuals and irregulars.
tORD TYPE tmono setA multivolume monographic publication, for which a finite number of volumes are or will be published. Each volume could stand alone as an independent work.
dORD TYPE fmono updteMonograph updating service: a series of separate pages, sometimes bundled into booklets, issued serially to supplement or update the content of a previously published work.
oORD TYPE ocollectionA group of items acquired as a collection, in one or more formats, such as a collection of typescripts and film posters.
uFORMAT wmusic scoreMusic represented by staves or other symbols. This definition includes full scores, partial scores, such as piano and vocal scores, and music issued in parts.

ORDER RECORD STANDARDS
(REVISED June 16, 1995)

****PURPOSE AND PRINCIPLE****

Coding standards in OhioLINK library order records will produce comparative acquisitions data of value to collection management and acquisitions librarians in OhioLINK libraries. Consistent coding will make possible the generation of comparative paper reports and will create data that will in the future be usable in automated reports and analyses.

Four fixed fields in the order record should be coded consistently among all OhioLINK libraries: ACQ TYPE, ORD TYPE, FORMAT, and CODE3. Currently, CODE3 is designated as PUB TYPE for OhioLINK Libraries. This revised document reflects a change to incorporate the values previously stored in PUB TYPE in the other three fixed fields. PUB TYPE is currently under redefinition. It should be left blank until these new standards are approved and distributed.

To ensure meaningful and consistent statistics OhiolINK libraries must use, with exceptions noted below, only authorized codes in these four fixed fields. If a library needs statistical data on subsets of materials included within a standard code, this scheme provides two options:

1.Use another local code (CODE1 or CODE2) to define specific subsets.
2.In three of the four fields (ORD TYPE, ACQ TYPE, and CODE3) a library may locally define numeric values to distinguish subsets within standard codes. Such local codes must be used carefully and in a way that allows them to map to a standard code for reporting and analysis. A definition and explanation of these codes should accompany any report sent to OhioLINK, since this mapping is not an automatic process.

(Revised June 16, 1995)

****FIELD VALUES****

ACQ TYPE: The ACQ TYPE describes the type of purchase or the method of financial transaction. Put simply, it describes how the money is handled. In addition to the standard codes listed here, OhioLINK libraries may define numeric codes for local use, with the understanding that they must be mappable to standard codes for OhioLINK reports and statistical analyses.
CODEDESCRIPTORDEFINITION
ppurchasePayment is made upon receipt of items. Payment for subscriptions is made upon invoice.
ggiftNo payment. The item is usually solicited and its donor is usually known.
nno chargeNo payment. The item is usually received unsolicited and its donor is usually not known.
xexchangeNo payment. Item/title received through exchange program.
rexch purchPayment is usually made upon receipt, but the item/title is purchased for exchange for another item(s).
ddepositoryNo Payment. Item/title is received through a depository program at no charge.
tdeps acctPayment is made from a deposit account with a publisher or vendor.
bprepaidPayment is made before receipt.
ccomes withNo payment is make on a record with this code. Payment is made on the primary publication or membership record. Item/title comes with another publication, with a multi-title subscription arrangement, or with a membership.
lleasePayment is for use of the material, not for purchase.
zotherUsed only when none of the above apply. An internal note should be used to provide explanation.

ORDER RECORD STANDARDS (June 16, 1995)

ORD TYPE: The ORD TYPE describes the means of acquisition or the method of ordering without defining the payment practice. In one sense, it provides a more specific description of the ACQ TYPE. In addition to the standard codes listed here, OhioLINK libraries may define numeric codes for local use, with the understanding that they must be mappable to standard codes for OhioLINK reports and statistical analyses.
CODEDESCRIPTORDEFINITION
rmono unitA firm order for any material except one-time serial orders.
userial untA one-time serial order for a back issue(s) or a back run of volumes, or for the simple purchase of a single volume of a serial title.
aapprovalAn item received automatically on an approval or gathering plan.
nappvl slipAn order made from an approval vendor notification slip.
sserial
(formerly sub/sto)
An order for any serial publication on subscription, including standing orders, but excluding periodicals.
pperiodicalA serial, usually containing articles or abstracts, published more frequently than annually, including newsletters.
mmembershipAn order for membership to an organization.
xpackageA package purchase of all, or a subset, of the publications of an issuing body, such as the IEEE library service.
fmono updateMonograph updating service: a series of separate pages, sometimes bundled into booklets, issued serially to supplement or update the content of a previously published work.
gserviceResources, information, or products provided for use but not purchase. For example: Dow Jones Online.
tmono series or
mono set
A group of monographs, related by a series title, that are published indefinitely.
A multivolume mongraphic publication, for which a finite number of volumes are or will be published. Each volume could stand alone as an independent work.

ORDER RECORD STANDARDS (June 16, 1995)

FORMAT: The FORMAT describes the physical format of the material. Not all possible formats can be accounted for given this field's 32 code limit. Given future need for additional codes resulting from ongoing format development, OhioLINK libraries may NOT define numeric codes for local use.
CODEDESCRIPTORDEFINITION
