    Subject: Autocat message on preservation photocopies

     This message from Crystal Graham at UCSD is in response to a
     request to the Autocat List by Edward Gaynor some weeks ago.

     ARL has not developed guidelines for cataloging photocopies.
     Dissemination of bibliographic records for microforms is
     considered essential in order to prevent duplicate filming
     efforts.  Hopefully libraries will obtain service copies
     from the holder of the master microform and use their monies
     to film something else.  Since photocopies do not have this
     resource-sharing potential, they were judged to be beyond
     the scope of the ARL guidelines.

     Nonetheless it may be useful to know that a preservation
     photocopy exists.  OCLC is investigating "unmasking" the 583
     field (for formats other than AMC) so that libraries can
     share such information with other OCLC libraries.

     I am thrilled to learn that you are actually using the ARL
     guidelines for microforms.

     (former ARL Visting Program Officer for Bib Control of
     Preservation Microforms)
