Abstract

For the past several years the University of West Georgia Library has cataloged e-journals using the generic MFHD location "internet," with vendor information in the 852g. As more vendor packages were cataloged, this convention began to negatively affect statistical/reporting functions and e-journal collection maintenance (e.g., deleting records of canceled titles). This presentation will describe the identification of approximately 4,000 "internet" MFHDs containing vendor-specific links using Voyager Access Reports, as well as the assignment of vendor location codes to these records using Gary Strawn's Location Changer program. Vendor locations are more descriptive for staff and OPAC users and facilitate fast and easy reporting and catalog maintenance of e-resource collections.
