3.4.9 Cataloging of Remote-Access Electronic Resources


To give guidance for the selection of remote-access electronic resources for inclusion in the catalog.

To govern the creation of catalog records for remote-access electronic resources.

This policy covers only remote-access electronic resources. For direct-access electronic resources (e.g., CD-ROMs), follow the appropriate cataloging standards (e.g. RDA, LC-PCC Policy Statements and Metadata Guidance Documentation; other PCC standards).

I. Policies

Selection Policy for Inclusion in the Catalog

Remote-access electronic resources that will be represented in the BYU Library Catalog may be selected by librarians in public services, technical services, or special collections, in accordance with the same principles and policies applicable to the selection of resources in physical media. These include:

  1. Resources should be relevant to the information needs of the Library’s patrons
  2. Resources should complement or enhance information already available in the Library’s collection (including its electronic resources)
  3. Resources should be of scholarly value, credible and accurate; the author(s) of the resource should be an authority on the subject
  4. Resources should be user-friendly

Granularity. In general, catalog records for electronic resources will be provided at the same level of granularity as is usual in the catalog for physical resources. Just as we do not in most cases provide catalog records for individual articles in journals or for individual chapters or sections of books, Cataloging in most cases will not create records, or load vendor records, at the “article” or “chapter” level for databases, electronic journals, or electronic books. (Such records can be created in the same circumstances where we would create them for physical materials, e.g., Special Collections analytics, etc.)

In general, remote-access electronic resources which the Library has acquired through its regular acquisitions process (i.e., for which the Library has paid) will be cataloged. These include:

  • Electronic journals
  • Electronic books
  • Electronic indexes
  • Databases

In addition, resources which have been digitized by the Library (e.g., for Internet Archive or Digital Collections) will be cataloged.

“Free” remote-access electronic resources, e.g., websites, or discrete collections of digital books, should conform to further criteria, as follows:

  • The resource must be judged to be permanent (not likely to disappear in the near future)
  • The resource must be freely accessible to BYU, CCLA, and associated patrons via its URL
  • The site’s server should be stable, without frequent downtimes
  • The site’s address should be stable. Selectors should consider that every time a URL changes for a site that has been cataloged, the catalog record must be corrected and updated.
  • Normally the site should not be just a list of links to other Web sites.

Resources produced by and housed at the Lee Library or BYU are more likely to meet these criteria because we have more control over them. These resources may include:

  • Local Web sites
  • Local digital collections or single items

Requests from subject librarians for addition of open access and freely accessible digitized materials to the catalog are made to the Digital Metadata Librarian, who will assign materials to catalog department personnel on the same basis that other materials are assigned. Once assigned these materials are considered part of the cataloger’s or specialist’s backlog.

Cataloging Policies

Resources chosen for inclusion in the Library’s catalog will be cataloged by the cataloger who would normally catalog similar items in physical formats. This may include copy cataloging. Departments or sections may be given specific assignments.

Cataloging may employ a variety of methods to provide access to records for remote-access electronic resources.

Vendor Records. If in the judgment of the Department records provided by vendors of groups of resources (such as NetLibrary or eBrary) are of good quality and cost effective, these will be modified in accordance with Library Catalog Policies and loaded into the catalog. Modifications include, among others:

  • The addition of a 583 action note
  • Manipulation of the 856 field (containing the URL) to conform to the display standard used in the BYU catalog
  • The addition of a genre/form term for “Electronic books” or “Electronic journals,” etc., as appropriate, in the form used in the BYU catalog is no longer done. Do not continue this practice.

Consideration of cost effectiveness will include an evaluation of the amount of authority work and other manipulation that would be involved in the record load.

BYU Catalog Department Produced Records. In many cases Cataloging will produce records for remote-access electronic resources rather than depend on vendor loaded records. Resources following this procedure may include:

  • Electronic books and serials digitized at BYU by Lee Library personnel, residing on Library servers or remotely (e.g. Internet Archive)
  • Electronic books and serials digitized elsewhere.
  • Collections included in Digital Collections
  • Electronic journals subscribed to separately from aggregator databases
  • Databases subscribed to by the Library
  • Free websites and digitized resources selected in accordance with the selection policy outlined above

Single vs. Multiple Records
Summary (details follow)

1. Vendor records.

  • Vendor records usually result in two records for the same resource if we have a copy in paper in addition to the electronic version.
  • Patron will see 2 records (1 print and 1 online)

2. In-house cataloging. An electronic version of a resource will be cataloged on a separate record from the print version.

  • Patron will see 2 records (1 print + 1 online)

3. Serials. An electronic version of a serial will be cataloged on a separate record from the print version.

  • Patron will see 2 records (1 print + 1 online)

Vendor Records. As frequently happens, when the Library obtains records for a set of electronic resources and owns another manifestation of one or more resources in the set (e.g., paper or microform, or another digitized version), the policy regarding the loading of vendor records will in nearly all cases result in more than one record for the resource. This is parallel to longstanding library practice for microforms. Acquisitions should not add copies to vendor-loaded electronic-resource records.

Cataloger Produced Records. In cases where Library catalogers are producing records for individual resources, a separate record will be created, producing a separate record for a digitized version of a resource which the Library also owns in physical format. In some cases the original is not kept after digitization (e.g., the so-called preservation of digital books program). In such cases, the original should go through the normal withdrawal procedures (see 3.5.3).

Cataloging from Copy. 856 fields for related resources included with incoming copy should be examined. If the URL is for a “for pay” resource the BYU Library system does not subscribe to, and is therefore inaccessible to our users, the field should be removed. URLs for open access resources (free to anyone) should be retained. Links to free resources (such as table of contents, summary, etc.) may be retained.

Level of Cataloging

Books that have been digitized will be cataloged at the item level (e.g., the book) just as the physical copy would have been cataloged. Archival collections that have been digitized (e.g. for Digital Collections) will normally be cataloged at the collection level, just as a physical archival collection would have been cataloged. Item-level records from such collections will be created only in unusual circumstances.

Basis of Description

The basis of description for “born digital” resources is the digital resource itself.

Cataloging of digitized items follows the Provider-Neutral E-Monograph Record standard (https://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/scs/documents/PCC-PN-guidelines.html), or for serials, the Aggregator Neutral Record Standard (http://www.loc.gov/acq/conser/pdf/agg-rec-guidelines.pdf). In these standards descriptive portions of the record are based on the original and guidance is given for additional information about the digitized copy or copies. In OCLC cataloging, the basic “neutral” record should be given as the master record. URLs for various copies are recorded in 856. 856 fields should not be “proxy” URLs (e.g. that lead to another library’s login page). Only one provider-neutral record should exist in OCLC for a given edition or manifestation. Duplicates should be merged. Similarly, only one should exist in the BYU Library catalog.

If a provider-neutral standard for a specific format (e.g. archives) has not yet been created, the cataloger will follow the existing standards to the extent possible.

Access Points. Records for digital resources, including “born digital” resources, will all contain

  1. Access to the URL through an 856 field, if public access is available through the Web
    856 40 $u
    http://contentdm.lib.byu.edu/cgi-bin/htmldoc.exe?CISOROOT=/TrailGuides&CISOPTR=2975 $7 0

    • Note: Prior to July 2010 Cataloging provided, in the record for the print copy, an 856 link to the digital version. As of July 2010 Cataloging no longer provides these links, for two reasons: (1) the exponential expansion of digitization projects has made it increasingly difficult for Cataloging to provide these links (and with them the need to maintain two links instead of one in the case of URL changes); (2) sufficient access to the remote-access electronic resource is given to the Library patron through the URL in the electronic resource record.
  2. Add subfield $7 0 at the end of the field for open access (freely available to anyone) materials. Add subfield $7 1 for restricted access (e.g. a resource that we have paid for and is only accessible to BYU patrons)
    856 40 $3 Google (British Library) $u https://www.google.com/books?id=WVtiAAAAcAAJ $7 0
    856 40 $3 Early English books online (University of Cambridge and Huntington Library) $u https://www.proquest.com/eebo/docview/2264210707 $7 1
  3. A SIRSI call number record will be added to the record for the digital version
    • The call number reads “see URL”
    • Class scheme: ALPHANUM
    • Item type: E-BOOK (for monographs) or INTERNET (for serials)
    • Location: LIBRARYWEB
    • Library: INTERNET
    • Note: The Law Library has its own policies for the call number record.
  4. Formerly, one or more of the following genre/form terms was recorded, as appropriate. This is no longer done.
    • Digital maps
    • Electronic books
    • Electronic dissertations
    • Electronic government information [subdivided by country as appropriate]
    • Electronic journals

    655 0 $a Electronic books.
    655 0 $a Electronic government information $z United States.

Broken Links

The Library runs a report periodically, checking all 856 fields in records in the catalog and reporting URLs that appear to be invalid. These often—usually—appear to arise because the remote server is down at the time the report checks. However, sometimes these URLs have, in fact, disappeared or changed.

Such “broken” links are routed to the cataloger who originated the record (or his/her successor).

  1. The cataloger should check the URL; if it is working, nothing further need be done.
  2. If the cataloger is unsuccessful at finding the resource using the URL in the catalog record, he/she should attempt using a search engine such as Google to find the resource at a new URL. If this is successful, the cataloger should replace the old URL in the 856 field with the new, and give a 583 action note details.
    Note: If a new URL is not found, the cataloger should check the Internet Archive “Way-Back Machine” (http://www.archive.org/) for the most recent copy of the resource.
  3. If the cataloger is unsuccessful at finding the resource at all, the 856 field should be deleted, though if thought useful its URL may be preserved in a 583 field.
    Example: 583   rev|bdelurl http://www.kulichki.com/moshkow/INOFANT/CARD/columbus.txt|c20070112|krlm|5UPB

A. On records representing an electronic resource only (no print version)

  • The record location is changed to WITHDRAWN
  • The 856 field is deleted
  • a 583 field is added with “delurl” in $b, and a brief explanation of why the resource was withdrawn in $x.

B. On records following the previous cataloging policy representing both print and electronic versions of a resource

  • The 856 field is deleted
  • The 655 field for the electronic format is deleted
  • The SIRSI call number record for the digital version is deleted
    A 583 is added with “delurl” in $b, including the deleted URL
    Example: 583   mod|bdelurl https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/loi/15406040|c20070517|kvw|5UPB

II. Procedures

Large numbers of pre-1930’s print books have been digitized worldwide and are freely available (as of 2022 anything 1926 and earlier is in the public domain). It is in the best preservation interests of the Library, including Special Collections, that patrons use such materials if possible before asking to handle our print copies. We can provide easy access to these materials for our patrons by cataloging and importing into the database records for these digital copies. Under PCC provider-neutral guidelines (PN) a record for a digital copy (or copies) would have all the same access points, title and publication information, etc., as that for the corresponding print copy and thus would come up in search results at the same time as records for the print; it therefore would not be difficult both for patrons and Library personnel to discover their availability. Special Collections personnel at the circulation desk could be trained to routinely do a check in the catalog and if a digital copy is discovered to suggest that the patron use that if possible (as microform copies were treated in the past).

Retrospective projects can be engaged in to match digital copies to already-cataloged materials, but at a minimum, digital copies should be searched for at the time of cataloging of newly acquired public-domain (pre-1926 as of 2022) print resources and if found, be cataloged and imported into the database at the same time as the record for the print resource is created and imported. If you find digital copies of earlier editions than the print copy you have in hand you might want to consider cataloging one or more of those in addition to a digital copy corresponding to the print-in-hand. Be on the lookout for later open-access materials as well.

  1. Find digitized versions of the print book. Try to find at least one, but if you find more than one so much the better, all copies can be incorporated into the PN record. In most cases this step shouldn’t take more than a few minutes although if you suspect there should be a digital copy and can’t find one at once keep trying (for a reasonable time) using different searches and in different databases. Here are some places to look:
    1. Search in OCLC using the same search techniques as for the print book, but limit the “Internet:” dropdown to “Internet”. If there are results they may point you to freely available online versions (be careful, though, they may point to “for pay” resources such as ProQuest databases—we’re looking for free resources).
      It can be helpful to turn off “apply language of cataloging limiter” for this search. Often foreign-language cataloging includes URLs pointing to digital copies not found in English-language cataloging.
      If a good OCLC record is found (especially a Hathi Trust record) keep it in mind to use in the cataloging step (below).
    2. Google Books. https://books.google.com/ This is a huge source and not everything here is in OCLC. Try many different ways of searching for the resource—search results are somewhat unpredictable and sometimes different copies of the same resource come up using different searches.
    3. Hathi Trust. https://www.hathitrust.org/ Most resources in Hathi Trust have been cataloged in OCLC, but sometimes resources not found in OCLC are available here. The database is slower to load than Google Books so if you find the same copy both places, it’s easier to navigate in Google Books.
    4. Internet Archive. https://archive.org/ As with Hathi Trust, most but not all resources here have been cataloged in OCLC. BYU contributes materials to Internet Archive.
    5. https://www.europeana.eu/en This has a tricky searching and viewing interface but materials are often available here that are not available elsewhere.
    6. https://gallica.bnf.fr/ Digital collection sponsored by the National Library of France
    7. German Digital Library (DDB) https://www.deutsche-digitale-bibliothek.de/ Millions of books digitized by German institutions. Particularly useful for early printed books from German-speaking countries, though not limited to that.
    8. Simple Google search https://www.google.com/ Very frequently results are found in open search engines such as Google even if searches of digital collections do not yield anything. This works best if you put pieces of the title in quotes into the search box plus the year of publication. Try different combinations of parts of the title (or other text you expect to find).
  1. Create the catalog record(s). The goal is to have one record for the print resource in our collection and one record representing all copies found of the parallel digital resource. (As noted above, in some cases we may also want to have a record for a digitized resource that does not correspond to a print resource in our collection.)
    1. If you are in the process of cataloging a print resource, catalog it as usual in OCLC, presumably as a PCC record, including all necessary authority and other work. Wait to import the finished record, however, until you’ve created a record for the corresponding digital copy/copies you found (you may discover that you want to make changes to the print record while you work on the digital record).
    2. Catalog the digital copy/copies.
      Note: familiarize yourself with the RDA PCC provider-neutral record guidelines (PN) https://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/scs/documents/PCC-PN-guidelines.html

      1. If you found an “internet” record in your OCLC search above, consider using it as copy. If you find a Hathi Trust record by OCLC policy you should use it and build on it. Other records for digital copies are often substandard, and it might be easier just to use the record you created for the print copy as a basis for the record for the digital copy/copies and then merge the others into it.
      2. If you do not find an “internet” record or choose not to use one as copy, use the record you created for the print copy as the basis for a new record for the digital copy/copies. (Note: if you are using copy under step “i” rather than producing a new record, make sure you do everything in step “3” below in that record.)
        1. Place your cursor somewhere in the print record.
        2. Use the OCLC macro to create a base record for the digital copy/copies: in the menu go to Tools => Macros => Manage; in the “OCLC” section choose “GenerateERecord” and click “Run”. This will do most of the “digital” coding for you.
          Note: You can assign a menu button and/or keystroke combination to this macro rather than going through the menus.
          Note: following PN guidelines, there should be ONE record in OCLC to represent all digital copies of the SAME print edition/issue/state of the resource. However, if there are more than one you can merge them.
        3. The macro is several years old so there are some changes you need to make to the resulting base record:
          1. Change ELvl to blank
          2. Change Srce to “c” (assuming you’re creating a PCC record)
          3. Add 042 pcc (if you are a PCC cataloger)
          4. In 040, add $b eng; add $e pn; and add or revise other subfields $e as necessary (e.g. it might be necessary to add “$e rda and or $e dcrmr”)
          5. Change 588 by adding first indicator “0” and change the text to “Digital images” (because you are actually looking at the digital images as the basis of the cataloging)
          6. Add 856 fields for all the copies you found. Include a separate 856 for each digitized copy.
            1. Subfield $3 should identify the copy, e.g.:
              $3 Google (British Library)
              $3 Vol. 1, Google (University of Michigan)
              $3 HathiTrust (University of Chicago)
              $3 Bayerische Staatsbibliothek
            2. Subfield $u contains the URL for the digital book. Try to use a general URL rather than one pointing to a particular page in the book.
            3. Add subfield $7 to the end; include the value “0” if the URL points to an open access (free) resource; include the value “1” if the URL points to a paid service (e.g. from Proquest or Serials Solutions)
          7. Make any other changes necessary, then produce the record.
          8. You will notice a 776 field linking back to the print record.The print record should have a corresponding link to the record for the digital copy.
            1. Copy the OCLC record number for the digital record.
            2. Go to the record for the print copy.
            3. Add 776 08
            4. Paste the OCLC record number for the digital record into the new 776 field
            5. In the edit menu, choose insert from cited record. OCLC will fill out most of the field for you
            6. Add to the beginning of the 776 field “$i Online version: $a” (or “$i Online version: $t” if the resource is entered under title).
            7. Your two records should now have linking fields to each other. Examples:776 08 $i Print version: $a Suárez, Cipriano, 1524-1593. $s Compendium rhetoricae. $t Cypriani Soarii e Societatis Jesv Artis rhetoricae libri III. $d Viennae, Austriae : Typis Leopoldi Joannis Kaliwoda Universitatis Typographi, 1740 $w (OCoLC)52443819

              776 08 $i Online version: $a Suárez, Cipriano, 1524-1593. $s Compendium rhetoricae. $t Cypriani Soarii e Societatis Jesv Artis rhetoricae libri III. $d Viennae, Austriae : Typis Leopoldi Joannis Kaliwoda Universitatis Typographi, 1740 $w (OCoLC)1223040965

    • If necessary, merge duplicate digital version records in OCLC (be careful to make sure they are duplicates). 856 fields will transfer.
  1. Import the records
    1. For the print record, import and overlay the acquisitions record as usual. Do any further processing as usual (e.g. add 583, adjust the call number, add barcode, print labels, etc.)
    2. For the online record, import as “match and load”
      1. In SmartPort, the “Library” should be INTERNET (you will probably have to reset this as part of the SmartPort process)
      2. Change the “date cataloged” to TODAY
    3. Add 583
    4. Remove extraneous fields if necessary (e.g. 994, 948, FAST headings, etc.)
    5. Save the record
  2. Click on the “Call number/item maintenance” wizard.
    1. Click on the “current” link
    2. Click “add item”
    3. Change Call number to “see URL”
    4. Change Class scheme to “ALPHANUM”
    5. Item type should (in most cases) be “E-BOOK” (for serials use “INTERNET”)
    6. Home and current location should be “LIBRARYWEB”
    7. Click save.
    8. Open the record in “edit” and check it over to make sure everything is OK.

Appendix. Some Google Books tips

Thumbnail view. The URL from your search may not open the book at the title page. Click on the icon that looks like a table  at the top of the screen (or if you’re in the older version of Google books it’s in the left column). This goes to a “thumbnail” view from which it’s usually quite easy to navigate to the title page, and to section heads (if you want to include a 505 contents note), and also to check pagination/foliation (e.g. to make sure this copy corresponds to your print copy, or if you don’t have the print copy in hand for some reason). There is also a similar thumbnail view in Hathi Trust, but the images are MUCH slower to appear than in Google Books. If you can get to the same copy in Google Books, use that interface rather than Hathi Trust.

Getting to the general Google Books page for the book. To the right of the thumbnail icon is an “x”. Click on it. This takes you to a general metadata page for the book. Take note of the owning library for the original print copy—a line that begins “Original from”. Copy the URL.

Google URL. The URL you copied is OK for your 856, but it is preferable to shorten it.

Directly after the word “books” in the URL type “?id=”

Starting with the slash after “books” delete everything until you get to the ID number—i.e. delete “edition” and the words describing the title.

After the ID number is a string of characters beginning with a question mark. Delete this.

For example:




Always test your shortened URL to make sure you didn’t remove too much or too little.

Include subfield $3 showing the owning institution of the original

You will notice some variation in the 007 fields, depending on whether the OCLC macro was used or not to create the record. The macro creates a minimal 007 field, which is fine.

This one began as a Hathi Trust record (note the 042, 5XXs). It was also merged with several other records for the same provider neutral electronic manifestation (see the 019)
