Forwarded on behalf of Susan Westberg, with apologies in advance for
> The CORC February 24, 2002 installation includes submit and retrieval of
> authority records for NACO institutions under review, and some problem
> fixes. This information will be available in the CORC News area after the
> February installation. Following is more information about these changes.
> As announced in the October 2001 CORC installation, for CORC NACO
> institutions, both "Submit Record to National Review File" and a responded
> file will be available. The user may submit an edited workform or
> existing authority record to the National Review File for Library of
> Congress staff to review. Once the record has been reviewed, LC staff
> "Respond" the record back to the institution. The NACO user at that point
> has the option to retrieve the responded record through CORC, CatME, or
> Passport interfaces, regardless of which interface was used to submit the
> authority record. However, if a responded authority record is retrieved
> through the CORC interface, it may only be saved to the CORC Authorities
> Save File. It is no longer available through CatME or Passport. This
> action is available from the CORC Authorities database or the Authorities
> Save File.
> The NACO user may access responded authority records from CORC
> Authorities/Show/Responded File. When the Authority Responded File is
> displayed, the user gets a list of records that contain a truncated 1xx
> field, the ARN, the LCCN and an expiration date. The records may be
> tagged or marked either from the Action menu dropdown, or one by one.
> Once the records have been tagged, the action "transfer tagged records"
> will move the records from the Responded File to the institution's CORC
> Authorities Save File. NOTE: If the records have been tagged and the
> user leaves the display prior to transferring any tagged records, the
> tag/s will not persist. The user would need to tag the records again for
> Several problem fixes will also be installed
> * The CORC RC Cataloging Source index was not being generated
> correctly (i.e., drawing from the MARC 040 $a & $c). This will be
> * Default indicators for field 245 in MARC workforms will change from
> 10 to 00.
> * Added the text "Field" to Functions dropdown actions Cut, Copy and
> Paste for the Identifier in the Dublin Core Template View to match the
> function names in the MARC Template View.
> * Added the text "Heading" to the Function dropdown actions Control
> and Uncontrol in the Dublin Core Template View to match the function names
> in the MARC Template View.
> * When a record is added to the Active records page, and a
> title/heading is available to display, the term New1, New 2, etc. will not
> be retained. This change does not apply to Constant Data records that have
> not yet been added to the database.
> * The "Edit" option was removed from the Functions dropdown for Dublin
> CORC "Identifier/URI" when the URL is not hotlinked.
> * The institution displayed for Entered Date is different when in
> Dublin Core Textarea view than in other views. This will now match other
> Browser Compatibility Information
> Currently, CORC and CatExpress work well with versions of Netscape 4.75,
> 4.76, 6.1 and 6.01 as well as Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 5.0 or 5.5,
> but not Netscape 6.0. IE 6.0 is still being tested for compatibility.
