Using In-Process Records to Reveal Backlogged Collections

Over time, the University of Maryland Libraries have been aggressively developing their Judaica collections. Through donations and purchases from private individuals and larger institutions, the Libraries have acquired tens of thousands of volumes in this subject area. The growth has far exceeded cataloging capacity, resulting in a significant backlog that is invisible to selectors and patrons alike. In order to make these materials available, catalogers at UM Libraries have developed procedures that make use of in-process records, which have since been applied to other large backlogs. This paper describes the procedures and discusses their advantages and disadvantages.

Presented by Jasmin Nof at the 2010 Association of Jewish Libraries convention in Seattle, WA.
