Evaluating Bibliographic Record Sets for Electronic Resources

by Rutgers University Libraries Central Technical Services

The following are factors to consider when evaluating record sets for e-resource batch loads. This is not a linear process and every question will not be relevant for every record set; however this document can be used as a checklist to ensure that all issues have been taken into account in making a decision. There are five major aspects to consider:

  1. Number of records
  2. Quality of the records
  3. Matching on existing records
  4. Preprocessing scripts
  5. Sending new records to OCLC
