For the Public
Correcting Existing RecordsItem records belong exclusively to the library that creates them. Changes within an item record should only be made by the library that created it. Bibliographic records, on the other hand, are a shared resource. If not now, then some time in the future, items from multiple libraries will be attached to a given bib record. Certain general principles flow from this:
In general, staff of SOLAR libraries must take responsibility for correcting errors within the bib records they have created or copied into the SOLAR, whenever errors come to their attention.
When staff of member libraries encounter false unique records -- multiple bib records for clearly identical editions of a work -- they should follow the procedures described in the Cataloging Standards, in order to consolidate multiple item records on the best bib record, irrespective of who created each bib record.
