This session will illustrate the impact of the Acquisitions module on the Cataloging module; the Cataloging module on the Acquisitions module; and how this interaction influences the OPAC. With the new functionality related to record merging and deletion soon to be available with Voyager 7.0, this session will help explain how the modules work together and sometimes against one another. Topics will begin with purchase order creation, intended locations and OPAC status displays. After item receipt the session will move onto cataloging including overlaying incorrect MARC records. Finally the session will conclude with database maintenance and the handling of missing or withdrawn items associated with a purchase order. If time allows the session will also focus on SysAdmin changes which may need to be made in order to keep the peace after the Voyager 7.0 upgrade. The intended audience is anyone who wants a better understanding of the relationship between modules and the potential impact of the Voyager 7.0 upgrade.
