  3. Innovative Interfaces Inc. (III) Strategies • Create Lists • Rapid Update • Messages • Circulation Functions • Printing Functions • Statistical Functions

  4. Getting Started • Item list of all videos in the library • Use Create Lists • “Loc has w and material type = g” • Result: 9,748 items • Includes videocassettes, DVDs, laser discs, oversized videos, videos on reserve, videos in Special Collections

  5. Narrowing the List • Identify videos to be reclassified • Videocassettes only • In certain item locations: wav, wao, wvi • Feature films

  6. Another List • Create a new item list • “d has feature films and loc = wav or d has feature films and loc = wvi or d has feature films and loc = wao” • Run against first list

  7. Feature Films • Result: 2,837 item records • Sort by location • Allows for planning of necessary shelf space

  8. More Decisions • Original plan • Reclassify all feature films • Use Rapid Update • Issues • Length of project • Patrons eager for recreational video collection • Potential for confusion

  9. More Benefits of Create Lists • Options & Flexibility • What do we want to do next? • Offers choices • Can narrow into smaller groups • Create new lists by different factors

  10. Reclassification by Groups • Some feature film videos do not require reclassification • Silent films: PN1995.75.x • Genre films: PN1995.9.x • Foreign films: PN1997.x

  11. Identifying Silent & ‘Genre’ Videos • Create Lists: • “call # between pn 1995.1 & pn 1995.99” • Run against list of Feature Films • Sort by location & call number

  12. Identifying Foreign Films • Create Lists: • “d has foreign films and loc = wav or d has foreign films and loc = wao or d has foreign films and loc = wvi” • Run against list of all video recordings • Sort by location & call number

  13. Rapid Update • Use Rapid Update to change loc on all of these items from wav to wavr • Efficient editing of item records for 1,400 records

  14. Videos to Reclassify & Relocate • Create Lists • “call # has PN1997” • Run against Feature Film list • Result: 1,404 items • Sort by location and call number

  15. Editing of Item Records • Each item record will be touched • Change call number • Add subject headings if necessary • Change location from wav to wavr individually

  16. Literary Works & Others • Identify one final group for reclassification: • DS, E, F, K, PQ, PR, PS, PT, etc. • Create Lists: • call # between a____1 & pn_1994.999 or call # between pn_1998 & z_9999.999” • Run against Feature Film list • Result: 437 items

  17. Adding Messages • Using Create Lists will identify unforeseen errors, problems and inconsistencies in catalog • Some videos were on list, but not found on shelf • Checked out or missing • Add message to item record: “Bring to Cataloging when returned for reclass, change loc to wavr” • Requires cooperation of Circulation staff

  18. Quality Control • Some videos found on shelf, but not on list • Lacking appropriate subject headings: • Feature Films • Foreign Films • Older records cataloged in 1980s • Cleans up catalog • Quality control, identifies patterns to look for

  19. Circulation Functions • Goal to avoid confusion • Created dummy patron: “Catalog Dept” • Check videos out & in to this patron

  20. Printing Functions • Printed review file lists for marking genre changes and dividing among catalogers • Printed labels for reclassified videos

  21. Statistical Functions • Ongoing quality control • Use Statistical Functions to sort lists by location and find errors quickly • Videos with messages still coming in

  22. Conclusions of III Usage • Create Lists allowed us to see the scope of the collection and decide how to proceed • Item Lists • Narrow by group • Sorting & Printing • Unforeseen surprises • Many functions of III allowed us to handle entire project in III
