a Holdings Record to Closed Serial Titles
Purpose: To record in URSUS the completed holdings
of a serial title held but no longer received in physical form by Fogler Library.
The phrase "Holdings Record" refers to a Checkin record that has no
card attached. These records can be created from scratch or by removing
the card from an existing checkin record.

If there is already a current check-in record
- Call up the record which usually defaults to the card display
- Click on the correct checkin record

then simply close or update volume numbering.
- If not in MARC format, proceed to the "Adding and Updating Holdings"

color will change)

will have to repeat this process for each distinct holdings range (For
more information on creating holdings statements see:
MARC format for Closed Serials)
- If there were already ranges of holdings listed in an 850 field or in a
non-MARC "h" field, add these ranges using steps 2-6 above and then delete
the 850 and/or "h" fields
- Example 1 Multiple holding locations (OMIC):

- Click on the "View" menu

- Make sure the holdings are correct and display properly. Alignment and
chronological order of multiple statements enhance readability.
Note: If there is no "holdings" type checkin
record already attached, check the bibliographic record for an 850 field.
This applies to holdings created prior to 2000. Add this range to the
record being created and delete the 850 field from the bib record.
