Cataloging and Indexing of a Subset of Federal Government Documents Not Listed in the "Monthly Catalog of U.S. Government Publications." Project Manual.
Copeland, Nora S., Comp.; And Others
This loose-leaf manual was compiled during a cataloging and indexing project which covered government publications issued primarily by regional offices, field offices, federal-state organizations, quasi-official agencies, or non-governmental institutions producing federally funded reports. Processing of these publications utilizes the National Union Catalog; Anglo American Cataloging Rules, 2nd edition; Library of Congress Subject Headings; Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) classification numbers; and the OCLC online cataloging system. Check lists and charts delineating workflow, searching and cataloging procedures for the project, and a brief discussion of the establishment and maintenance of a name authority file are presented. The major part of the manual consists of a series of memos created throughout the life of the project in order to instruct project members in correct policies and procedures. The memos are divided into sections comprising fixed field memos for 1979/80 and descriptive or subject cataloging memos for 1979/80 and January to September 1981. Fixed field memos are in numerical order by field, while cataloging memos are in alphabetical order by subject of memo. A memo number and date of issuance are provided on each document. The manual concludes with sample workforms used in the processing of publications and collecting project statistics. (ESR)
