Task Group on Replacement Volumes Update
July 5, 2006
Members: Jean Altschuler, Barbara Bohl, George Prager, Ellen McGrath, Ann Sitkin, Kathy Winzer, Regina Wallen (chair)
The task group concentrated its efforts on ensuring that replacement volumes become a part of new cataloging rules, RDA. At ALA in January 2006, Jean Altschuler, Ann Sitkin, and Kathy Winzer met with Judy Kuhagen from LC to devise a way to include replacement volumes as an item issued in successive parts, but treated exceptionally as an integrating resource, in RDA. With the release of the draft of part 1 of RDA, the task group quickly switched gears to revise the definition of replacement volumes so it could be included as a resource issued in successive parts. The group finalized the issuance and definition of replacement volumes and forwarded the revision to Judy Kuhagen at LC on Feb. 1, 2006. Kathy Winzer sent it to CC:DA for inclusion in ALA's response to the Joint Steering Committee (JSC) to the draft.
1.1.2. Mode of issuance
Add to the bullet for Resource issued in successive parts: Replacement volume set is a type of resource issued in successive parts. New parts are issued over time which replace discrete parts and are integrated into the set. As an exception, these are treated as integrating resources.
Addition to Glossary:
Replacement volume set: A resource composed of multiple hard or softbound volumes, of which one or more volumes are replaced at a later date. Information on the chief sources of replacement volumes may differ from the earlier volumes, and the resource may expand to one or more additional volumes, resulting in expansion of numbering (e.g., v. 5 becomes v. 5A and v. 5B).
Addition to Index:
Replacement volume set
Currently, the fate of replacement volume set lies with JSC. Tom Delsey, the editor of RDA, will put out a discussion paper on "mode of issuance" in August. Hopefully, replacement volumes will be included.
As we stated last year, stay tuned for the next installment!
