1 Response to Rating OEM-UK MARC records

  1. Really interesting post. It seems apparent that as subject access points are preserved, much of the value of a higher level of record is in there.

    In this automated mode of record creation, you have an interesting point of view to challenge the thinking behind the AACR2 and OCLC ratings, both of which seem focused around the time / skill level invested in a record by its cataloguer. Ratings based around the actual value of the information to the end user of the record would be interesting, I wonder what they might look like?

    With the publisher information for exam papers and missing encoding for textbooks, I would assume some of this could be added at a later date automatically or transposed from other sources.
