Reporting LC Monograph Records for Integrating Resources
OCLC converts LC bibliographic level "m" records for integrating resources to the continuing resources format when it finds them or when they are reported to them. The records have instructions in the 936 field: "Converted LC monograph record; notify LC with old/new LCCNs if authenticating for PCC." CONSER and BIBCO members may authenticate the records following these steps:
CONSER and BIBCO members may still find LC bibliographic level "m" records for integrating resources that need to be deleted from OCLC and LC's system in favor of a current bibliographic level "i" format record. In these cases:
Reminder: If using LC's call number on the new record you create or derive, please remember to code the 050 indicators #4 (first indicator=blank, second indicator=4). Thanks!
The report will be received by LC staff responsible for deleting LC bibliographic level "m" records for integrating resources. This information will be discarded once the LC record is deleted.
Please note: *Non-LC* bibliographic "m" records should be converted to bibliographic level "i" records. Program members can do the conversion themselves or report the record to OCLC for conversion (Robert Bremer firstname.lastname@example.org or Brenda Block email@example.com). Please do not create an integrating resource record that duplicates a non-LC bibliographic "m" record.
