Serials and Periodicals:

Should I Create an Item or an HOL?

 

When cataloging new titles, or adding to an existing title, it can be confusing to know whether to create item records, HOL records with formatted 85X/86X fields, or both. Here are general guidelines:

 

NOTE: In adding matieral to older records, be aware that the 85X Type/Linking Number codes will ONLY work properly if the HOL fields have been converted from 866 to 85X/86X pairs. You will need to convert the holdings. When cataloging new material, please create an 853 field if one is not already present.

 

Please feel free to consult with your supervisor or the Principal Serials Cataloger with any doubtful cases.
