tasks_notdone

While several of the previous posts have focused on different cataloging tasks, where they are performed, and what type of librarian or staff member completes them, there were several responses saying that these tasks aren’t completed at their institution.

Out of 284 responses, 6 said that there isn’t any original cataloging completed and 7 said that there isn’t any copy cataloging.

A little over 40% of respondents said that they don’t create new authority records and nearly 13% said that there is no authority maintenance being done at their institution.

With regards to non-MARC metadata, 80% say that they don’t do anything with PREMIS metadata and over one-third of respondents said that they don’t use Dublin Core at their institution.
