  • Did a full extract of Notre Dame database to send to Hathi.

    • Send data 1-4 times/year
    • Elements
      • OCLC
      • System number
      • ISBN/ISSN
      • Volume information (monographs)
      • Preservation / Missing status (Did not include in this extract)
      • Federal document flag
    • Found about 2000 records that could not be parsed
      • OCLC number problems
      • Records that “broke” MARC batch modules because the record was not UTF.
      • Records with invalid indicators in 866 (e.g., dashes or dollar signs).
    • Need to develop policies to track preservation (brittle) and missing items for Hathi.
