Aleph@UF: LKR Linking

Cataloging procedures and policies

LKR Linking -- SUSPENDED due to migration to Sierra

Since LKR is specific to Aleph, no new LKR's will be created and work will be needed to avoid loss of associations for those already existing as UF migrates to Sierra.

 

ANA LKR

The ANA LKR format can be used when linking an analytic/monograph record (secondary) to materials on a main series/serial record (primary). The LKR field is created on the secondary record. Besides allowing movement between the two bib records, the ANA field also creates a link between the secondary record and given item records attached to the primary record. The ‘bib to item’ link uses unique information in the description field of the item record (such as volume numbering, etc.). The ‘bib to item’ aspect of the ANA link allows users to see the real time status/location of the individual title.

ITM LKR

The ITM LKR format can be used when linking records without items (secondary) to ‘bound together’ (or other) records (primary). The LKR field is created on the secondary record(s). The ITM field creates a link between the secondary record and an item record attached to the primary record. The ‘bib to item’ link uses unique information in the administration holdings record. The ‘bib to item’ aspect of the ITM link allows users to see the real time status/location of the individual title.

PAR LKR

The PAR LKR format can be used when linking an alternate format record (secondary) to the original record (primary). The LKR field is created on the secondary record. The ‘bib to bib’ aspect of the link allows movement between the secondary and the primary.

UP LKR

The UP LKR format can be used when linking a record (secondary) record to another record (primary). The LKR field is created on the secondary record. The ‘bib to bib’ aspect of the link allows movement between the secondary and the primary.
