    Cataloging Guidelines for Music CDs

    Two programs are used to catalog every music CD: OCLC CatME and Voyager Cataloging module. There are also various physical jobs that have to be completed for each item and these jobs are interspersed in the directions where they fit best in the workflow. The following instructions are a step-by-step guide to the complete process:

    1. Open OCLC CatME.
    2. On the toolbar, click “Batch”.
    3. Click “Enter Bibliographic Search Keys”.
    4. Type in the appropriate search query in the white box.
      1. the ISBN number without the dashes – ex. 0817997520
      2. author/title/year derived search (author = dp 4,3,1; title = dt 3,2,2,1; year = yr XXXX all joined by and) – ex. dp ande,ter,l and dt pol,en,go,b and yr 2000
      3. author/title/year keyword search (author = au author/composer’s last name; ti  for each separate word in the title except articles; year = yr XXXX all joined by and) – ex. au bach and ti sonatas and ti partitas and ti solo and ti violin and yr 1975
    5. Click “Add”.
    6. Follow steps 4 & 5 until all the search queries have been entered.
