Most of our microfiche and microfilm was not classifed into Library of Congress call numbers. We used accession numbers to keep from having to shift in the cabinet drawers. We did use SUDOC numbers for some of the microfiche received thru the US GPO depository program.
A numbers = non-serial titles
AA numbers = serial titles
B = microfilm numbers
Sudoc numbers were used for many of the US GPO items
[see sample sudoc number in picture below]
|MICROFICHE STANDING ORDER TITLES as of Feb. 2015|
|Bar journals from Hein|
|National Conference of Comm. on Uniform State Laws|
|Oklahoma Session Laws|
|Oklahoma Statutes annotated - superseded parts|
Microform standing orders are paid out of the 7908 library periodicals account not the 7402 microform account.
Fiche formula from Scott Fiddler from Hein:
· Fiche that come in jackets should count at 50-55 fiche/inch
· Fiche that come “nude” are in two different thicknesses:
For the thicker kind, count 150 fiche/inch
For the thin kind, count 200-215 fiche/inch
To track the use of microfiche, the decision was made in 2005 to create a dummy barcode in Voyager (on bib record # 105092 “Unbarcoded microfiche”, MFHD #109247)
To make a scanner readable barcode, asterisks must be put before and after the “number” (must be in uppercase to be eye readable), then the entire phrase transformed into the “BARCODE 3 of 9” font, i.e.,
*CONGREC* (for the Congressional Record)
The resulting sheet is then printed out and given to circulation, who check out/ check in the microfiche to “Mr. Browse”, our dummy patron, then re-file the fiche.

The following will be considered when selecting microforms: formats should be compatible with existing equipment; microforms will be selected if it is impractical to add a print version because of the size, expense, infrequency of use or unavailability of the print copy.
QUESTION: Why is the 852 field being added to bib fiche records? I found it in this record and others near this number. Are you doing this for records you create in OCLC?
ANSWER: I do this for all records I bulk import into Voyager, so it's in the latest microfiche batches, the Ebrary records, and the LLMC digital. It tells Voyager to create a MFHD, and for what location.
Create a separate mfhd for each different MICROFORMS number. This way we can search by call number for all of the different "A" numbers that have been assigned to one bib record. The same titles have shown up in different fiche sets that we have purchased and we gave each one a different number. We began doing this in 2005.
See Voyager bib record 78309 for an example of this.
