Many thanks from me to Carl, Mary Jane, and especially Manon. As an acting (please, not for much longer ...) NACO Coordinator I've had to plunge into the weeds without a weed whacker just a little too often. As is the case with beginners generally, I tend to think there are RULES! where common sense is actually in order.

Richard,

 

It isn’t a template but I thought I’d point out what NACO Training, Module 8 (NACO Administration), slide 16, says about reporting duplicate authority records and BFM: http://www.loc.gov/catworkshop/courses/naco-RDA/Module%208-NACO%20Administration.pptx

 

Guidelines : After Independence
Duplicate/BFM Message

 

Identify which NAR to keep and which to delete and email that information to [log in to unmask]

      Include both the LCCNs and the 1XX of the NARs

      Include the LCCNs for the bibliographic records as well

 

I know many people only send LCCNs but I personally find it quite helpful if both the LCCN and the 1XX are included in the message. Often it means I only have to do a single search in our catalog to retrieve the affected records rather than multiple LCCN searches.

 

Other things I can suggest:

 

·         Please do not use an OCLC ARN (authority record number) instead of the LCCN

·         Please do not delete any internal spaces found in the LCCN

·         Please do not insert hyphens into the LCCN

·         Please do not delete any alphabetic prefixes found in the LCCN – just copy and paste whatever is in the 010 field

 

All of the above will help us process the requests as quickly as possible.

 

Thanks!

Manon

Richard,

 

I agree, NACO@LC wants the information to be clear but I have never seen an official template.  Carl’s templates fit the bill.  See the ones I use below, same idea.

Hello NACO at LC,

 

Please delete

Hello NACO at LC,

 

One of our catalogers has established the new NAR:

 

010 =

 

which means these records need BFM in loc.gov:

 

010 =

Richard,

 

I have never seen strictly prescribed formats for reporting BFM, etc., to LC.  I use something like this

 

Hello NACO,

 

Just one new authority record:

 

no2015-100234 

                                    78-535227     75-585118

to report BFM.  (I find it easier to proofread the numbers in the message when I insert the dashes.)

 

When reporting duplicate authority records, I do it this way:

 

Hello NACO,

 

Please delete no2004-699992 ;  it duplicates  no2004-700003

Please delete no97-32009 ;  it duplicates  no93-10724.

 

I think the main thing is for the information to be very clear.  If the folks at LC prefer something different, I haven’t ‘gotten the message’.

Are there templates for reports to be submitted per https://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/naco/bfmguide.html ?

 

I gather that these are made according to a rather strict form.
