  I discussed your questions about BIBCO documentation with some of the Univ.
of Maryland catalogers and below is our response.    Thank you for the
opportunity to comment.   I am sending this reply to the BIBCO list since I am
curious about what other people's reactions might be.   -John Schalow


Instead of putting energy into a BIBCO Participants manual, let's start out by
calling it an editing guide and cataloging manual following the CONSER model.
Part 1 of the editing guide would contain section A with background on the
BIBCO program including the information currently in the BIBCO FAQ.  Section B
would contain policies including core, record maintenance, and OCLC enhance
policies/procedures.   Etc.

This model would then allow us to create cataloging modules for each element in
the cataloging record and for kinds of materials, especially music,
audiovisual, and JACKPHY.  We could partner with MLA, OLAC, and CEAL to create
content.  Once we establish the components of the documentation, we can split
up the responsibilities and compile the material over time since it is an
enormous task.

What I hear consistently from cataloging staff is how good the CONSER
documentation is.  CONSER has compiled material from multiple sources and makes
it easier to train staff and answer difficult cataloging questions.  The CONSER
documentation is used by many non-CONSER libraries resulting in more consistent
cataloging practices for serials in the national databases.  Our goal should be
to create something equivalent for non-serials.  As we compile the modules, we
can perform training sessions at ALA and regional meetings. On Fri, 19 May 2000
