SPEC Kit [and] SPEC Flyer, n249 Sep 1999
This SPEC (Systems Procedures and Exchange Center) Kit and Flyer summarizes results of a survey of ARL (Association of Research Libraries) members that was designed to gather information about current approaches to bibliographic control of materials digitized for preservation. The survey is intentionally limited to the cataloging treatment of materials that were digitized from the library's own collections for preservation purposes. It is assumed that, in most cases, bibliographic records already exist for the paper analogs either at the item- or collection-level. The survey does not attempt to deal with bibliographic control of remotely accessed electronic resources or resources that exist only in digital form. Representative documents are provided, including guidelines for managing electronic resources from the University of Florida, McGill University (Canada), and Pennsylvania State University; cataloging policies from Brown University (Rhode Island), Cornell University (New York), the University of Florida, the Library of Congress, and Pennsylvania State University; examples of catalog records from McGill University, the University of Michigan, the National Library of Canada, Northwestern University (Illinois), Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Texas; and examples of network-based access to digital resources from McGill University, the University of Michigan, Northwestern University, and the University of Texas. Selected journal articles and World Wide Web sites are listed. (Contains 20 references.) (MES)
