Abstract

-What is the purpose of your library's catalog?
-What is your library's philosophy regarding the catalog's purpose and contents?
-Will you include DDA discovery records in your catalog?

To catalog or not to catalog DDA titles? It is tempting to answer this question with a succinct "no" and move on. It would be simpler to skip the ins and outs of add­ ing DDA discovery records to the catalog, and in the short term, easier on your technical services staff. Apart from making life temporarily easier, some other valid points can be made about not cataloging DDA discovery records. Lets address them briefly before dismissing them out of hand.
