Some libraries have digitized print materials that have historical and/or local value. If libraries wish to add these materials to LINKcat, they can now do so by adding a BSE record. The BSE record will have its cataloging upgraded by Madison Technical Services staff (for example, Madison TS staff can add subject headings to the original BSE record).
A new section was added to the Linking Manual that provides instructions for adding BSE records for locally digitized print materials. The BSE form has a new field, labeled WEB SITE. When adding a BSE record for a locally digitized print document, the web site URL should be entered into the WEB SITE field. For all other types of materials, the WEB SITE field should remain blank.
