The MCFLS Bibliographic Enhancement Request form.

Best Practices for the Bibliographic Enhancement Request Form

The above form is to be used for corrections or enhancements to CountyCat bib records. Below are best practices when using this form. Please remember, the more time spent on retrospectively refining older materials, the less time central cataloging staff have to fully catalog new brief and acquisition records.

  • Duplicated bib records
  • Bib level errors
  • Material type errors
  • Typos in any field
  • ISBN additions
  • Authority errors (a title controlled to an incorrect author)

The following are considered less necessary uses of the above form, and are discouraged.

  • Additions of series fields
  • Adding content notes to older or little held materials
