Subject: [minervacirc] New Minerva policy re: treatment of DVD/Blu-ray combo
Importance: High


Apologies for the cross posting, but it is important that all in
Minerva-land receive this notification.


At the Minerva Executive Board meeting on Monday, the Board considered a
policy recommendation from both the Circulation and Cataloging Standards
Committees regarding the treatment of DVD/Blu-ray combo packs.  The practice
has been that all combo packs (whether intact or split) share the same bib
record.  If the discs have been spilt into two separate circulating items,
the volume field is used to differentiate the DVD from the Blu-ray.   The
Board approved the following new policy - 

Effective immediately, the policy for the treatment of DVD/Blu-ray combo
packs requires the establishment of separate bib records dependent on how
the pack will circulate. If the pack is to remain intact, one bib record
must be created for the intact combo pack. If the pack is to be separated,
one bib record must be created for each circulating item; i.e. one bib
record for the separated Blu-ray,  another bib record for the separated DVD,
another for the separated 3D Blu-ray, etc. Volume fields are not to be used
in these records.

This policy does not require retroactive conformance but members are
encouraged to adapt grandfathered items to the new policy as staff time

Please direct questions regarding implementation processes to the
appropriate Standards Committee Chair:

.        James Rathbun, Circulation Standards Committee |

.        Katherine Morgan, Cataloging Standards Committee |
