Cataloging Materials that Include Chinese, Japanese, Korean,And at Least One Other Language
This document details the cataloging workflow for materials that have two languages, where one of them is Chinese, Japanese or Korean, and the other is ANY other language (e.g. eastern or western European, north or south American, south or southeast Asia, etc.). Affiliated Libraries should check with EAL Head of Technical Services before sending materials for cataloging.
I. Catalog & Metadata Services and other Self-Cataloging Units:
NOTE: this material is not to go through the student cataloger workflow.
A. When searching for OCLC copy for material with CJK text, and the OCLC record already includes the vernacular MARC fields:
· Accept the OCLC copy if ELvl is “I” or above
· Complete the cataloging
· Have the material spine labeled OR
· Send directly to the appropriate subject specialty library
B. When searching in OCLC for copy for material with CJK text, and the OCLC record does not include the vernacular MARC fields:
· Complete the cataloging
· Route the material to EAST using the Send Direct to EAST flag
· EAST will add the vernacular fields to the OCLC catalog record
II. C.V. Starr East Asian Library
- EAST will add the vernacular fields to the OCLC catalog record.
- After EAST has finished their work, materials for MAIN, MOFF, MREF, PHIL or SSEA will be routed back to the Catalog Dept. to be spine labeled.
- Subject Specialty Library material: after EAST has finished their work, the subject specialty library material will be sent directly to the appropriate library to be spine labeled.

The document looks good, and I’m glad this procedure has finally been recorded. However, it seems like there’s an awful lot of transit time for this type of material. Has any thought been given to reducing this delay?
