YBP / PromptCat at KSU Libraries and Media Services

Fall 1999 - Started planning process

August 2000 - First firm order sent to YBP

October 2000 - Approval slip plan began at

YBP. PromptCat service started

March 2001 - Approval plan up and running

April 2002 – Successfully added our 7

regional libraries

basic ordering workflow
Basic Ordering Workflow

After faculty and liaisons send order requests to Acquisitions department, Acquisitions staff:

  • Select bibliographic citations in GOBI and fill out GOBI Smart screen
  • Process the selections on the GOBI website and create a file of GOBISelect records for export to YBP’s ftp site
basic ordering workflow continued
Basic Ordering Workflow (continued)
  • Pick up file from the ftp site and load into III.
  • Brief bib records and full order records created
  • Check for duplication
  • Order transmitted to YBP via BISAC email
    • Item is only now “on order”
  • YBP sends order acknowledgement
basic ordering workflow continued9
Basic Ordering Workflow (continued)
  • When order is ready to ship to library, YBP sends an electronic manifest of titles to PromptCat
de duplication at load of gobiselect records
De-Duplication at Load of GOBISelect records
  • Normal order record status = “o” [on order]
  • Loader de-duplicates using a Title Key match
  • If suspected duplicate order status = “1” [on hold]
oclc promptcat
OCLC PromptCat
  • OCLC product to streamline cataloging and/or pre-order searching
  • Cooperatively implemented by OCLC and library materials vendors
  • A completely automated process requiring up-front planning and, once running, little human intervention
marc record selection
MARC Record Selection
  • How Bibliographic Matches are made at PromptCat:
    • Match is made in advance in a separate process
    • Based on ISBN or Publisher Number (from 028)
    • The vendor control number and OCLC number are recorded in a matching database
you can limit the records you receive based on
You can limit the records you receive based on
    • Encoding Levels
    • Cataloging Source
    • Record Type
    • WorldCat Holdings Set
  • Any record you don’t receive you can elect to receive a PromptCat Data Record (PDR) in place of
promptcat data records pdrs
PromptCat Data Records (PDRs)
  • Used to deliver vendor data when you do not receive a full record
  • Delivered when there is no match OR multiple matches in WorldCat, or there is a match but our holdings are up on it, or there is a match but it doesn’t fit our profile
  • Can only be delivered when you receive your records on tape or through an EDX account (FTP or Product Services Web)
promptcat site ids
PromptCat Site IDs
  • Used to determine processing options
  • You may use:
    • Location
    • Subaccount number
    • Account number, or
    • Fund code

Use as many as individual Site IDs you need, but you can only use one type for each account.

basic receiving workflow
Basic Receiving Workflow
  • YBP ships books to the library
  • Library picks up file of PromptCat records from OCLC’s ftp site and loads into III, matching off of order record number. Items, invoice lines (and maybe) order records are loaded as bibliographic record is overlaid
  • Acquisitions staff check / validate bib records and associated records
basic receiving workflow continued
Basic Receiving Workflow (continued)
  • Check titles against invoice
  • Add received date to order record
  • Add barcode to book and scan into item record
  • Print labels
basic receiving workflow continued22
Basic Receiving Workflow (continued)
  • For no matches (PDR received) search OCLC again
  • Remaining non-matches routed to OCLC TechPro
  • Once all titles have been checked the electronic invoice is posted
promptcat iii data loading
PromptCat / III & Data Loading
  • III defines how we load records in batch
  • III requires item record and order record information to be in certain 9xx fields and subfields in order to “map” them to their proper places in item, order and invoice
promptcat iii data loading24
PromptCat / III & Data Loading
  • Some of the information used to build the item, order and invoice records is default data provided by the loader
  • Some of the information is imported at load
  • Some of the information is imported at load if available. In the absence of data the loader will provide default data
  • Some of the information is system generated at load

ksu s extended approval plan interface
KSU’s Extended Approval Plan Interface
  • Unique in that we use one loader to do the following:
    • Create a brief bibliographic and order record for direct orders made on GOBISmart
    • Load records for direct orders that are cataloged by PromptCat and that overlay on order record number, overlaying the brief bibliographic record with a full bibliographic record and creating an item record and an electronic invoice line
    • Load PromptCat approval records consisting of full bibliographic records with item records, order records and invoice lines all loading in a single load
key points about kent state university s extended approval plan interface
Key points about Kent State University’s Extended Approval Plan Interface
  • Interface de-duplicates on Title Key.
    • A Title Key is a 7 character code that is created from the Title or Series field of the record you create
    • The Title Key uses the first letter of each of the first seven words of the field
key points about kent state university s extended approval plan interface continued
Key points about Kent State University’s Extended Approval Plan Interface (Continued)

Interface de-duplicates on Title Key (Continued)

  • When creating the Title Key, subtitles and series numbering are eliminated from the title key by stopping at colons ( : ), semicolons ( ; ) and space-slash ( / )
  • Only the first 49 alphabetic characters of the field are used in the creation of the Title Key
  • Ampersands ( & ) are treated as the word "and"
key points about kent state university s extended approval plan interface continued31
Key points about Kent State University’s Extended Approval Plan Interface (Continued)
  • KSU’s Extended Approval Plan interface overlays on order record number (.o#)
  • We have also established settings for comparing the encoding level of the incoming record and the target record as another check
  • The creation of an item record is based on the presence of a 945 field

    • Loading OCLCPromptCAT Records for Firm Orders into KentLINK
    • Loading OCLC PromptCAT Records for Approval Items into KentLINK
efficiencies
Efficiencies
  • Eliminated pre-order searching
  • When PromptCat records are loaded we receive a full bibliographic record, invoice and item record. This reduces cataloging costs, eliminates the need to key item records and entering payments individually
  • Reduces the amount of time it takes to get items to the shelf
more efficiencies
More efficiencies
  • Eliminates the need to print purchase orders
  • Reduces our postage cost because we are no longer mailing printed purchase orders
  • The more we order from YBP the better our discount
vendor benefits
Vendor Benefits
  • Vendor efficiencies
  • Our efficiencies and cost savings reinforce our desire to maximize our use of the process = more business for YBP / PromptCat
  • The more integrated workflow promotes a more stable economic relationship
this process can not handle everything
This process can not handle everything
  • Oversize books
  • Multiple copies
  • Non-circulating items in the Main Tower

(Only one status and itype is transmitted for each title)

  • Cat dates for brief records
problems
Problems
  • Very dependable automated process
  • When problems happen to the process they happen to lots and lots and lots of records
  • Dependable customer service at YBP and at PromptCat
