Cataloging Priorities

For the most part, everything of lasting research value published in English and the Western research languages since 1970 should be fully cataloged, beginning with items of more than 50 printed pages; the remainder may be controlled on the UF Libraries Catalog by means of provisional records whenever there is a clear statement of authorship, or organized in bulk in archival boxes or “vertical file” envelopes, by subject or institution. Hebraica and Yiddish materials, particularly brittle titles and smaller pamphlets, are likewise controlled by means of provisional records, with cataloging priority given to newer books as Library of Congress cataloging copy is found, and more selectively for modern Hebrew literature, Jewish philosophy, rabbinics, Bible, critical editions of classic texts, Israeli politics, etc., with shared OCLC copy.
