Physical Collections MARC Cataloging Workflows

The Cataloging and Metadata Services Unit at Utah State University ‘s Merrill-Cazier Library recently set out to map out the general workflows of the unit, including where material comes in, how it is handled, and where it goes after it leaves the unit.

Here is the workflow specific to our general research collections.  These workflows are specific to physical collections that are being cataloged in MARC for the integrated library system (ILS).

This workflow diagram was made using LucidChart.
