2008-10 User Group Meeting Breakout Session Exporting LHR (Local Holding Records) to OCLC
Summary: PALS has recently sent a test LHR file to OCLC for Inver Hills Community College. The PALS office was able to pull the necessary holding information and fix certain tag fields in the file for this test load. The data is only fixed in the file. We are not able to fix the data in the holding record. This session will inform libraries on the correct data needed in their serial holding records. Libraries can then clean up their records and also understand how to create new serial holding records with the correct tag information. This is documentation related to the presentation,
