Procedures/Processes/Rules

Book Jackets:  

  • Remove all book jackets from material. 
  • If there is important/interesting information on the book jacket flaps, cut them off and glue them to the inside covers of the book. 
  • Write the call number on the first page of the document in the top left-hand corner (just as you would on the cover)
  • If there isn't a barcode, then place a barcode on the back of the book as you would for all other material

Call Numbers:

  • Write the call number on all documents. 
  • If you can't write the call number on the cover (glossy, hardback, etc.), write the call number on the first page of the document in the top left-hand corner (just as you would on the cover).

OCLC Updating:

  • Before adding FUG holdings to an OCLC record, make sure there isn't a FLARE holding on the OCLC record. 
  • Once the FLARE holding is added to OCLC, the FUG holding is stripped from the record.

Holdings:

  • All holdings should match exactly what is in your hand.
