Supplement: Using 793 $g to Code Status of Access to E-Serial Content

Aug. 22, 2005


This document is a supplement to the larger document titled Using 793 $g to Code Status of Access to E-Serial Content and addresses the following:

1.    Differences in >793 $p/$g coding for UCSD and CDL records

2.    Use of >793 $p/$g for open access ejournals

3.    Coding the >856 $z when the publisher and platform are different

Differences in >793 $p/$g coding for UCSD and CDL records

Generally speaking, CDL records are clones of UCSD records.  However, one should be always be aware that variations or exceptions between the UCSD and CDL records exist due to local and SCP cataloging conventions, guidelines, and licenses. 

HighWire Press provides a good illustration for the possible differences seen between UCSD and CDL records.  HighWire Press is an ejournal aggregator that offers a number of ejournals with full or partial open access content which are cataloged for the CDL. 

UCSD record:

>793 0_ HighWire Press. $g a

>793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the UC Libraries. $p HighWire.

>856 41 $3 v.10(1999)- $z HighWire. Current 12 months restricted to UCSD IP addresses; all other issues freely available to all $u http://uclibs.org/PID/58706

CDL record:

>793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the UC Libraries. $p HighWire. $g m

>856 41 $3 v.10(1999)- $z HighWire. No access to current 12 months; all other issues freely available to all $u http://uclibs.org/PID/58706 

Use of >793 $p and $g for open access ejournals  

General rules (Exceptions noted below*):

1. Assign the following >793 for each open access ejournal:

>793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the [UC or UCSD] Libraries. $g [code]

2. If the open access ejournal is part of a “package” (e.g., BMJ, Project Hearth, CalDocs online journals, etc.), add a $p for the package name after the $a Open access resource …

>793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the UCSD Libraries. $p Project Hearth. $g [code]

As with licensed ejournals, there will usually be a one-to-one correspondence between the >793 and >856 fields for open access ejournals, with the following exceptions:

*Exceptions:

1. If an open access ejournal is part of a package that is included in DOAJ, assign two >793 fields: one for DOAJ and the other for the subpackage.  However, code >793 $g only for the subpackage.  Since these codes are used for statistics gathering, coding two >793 $gs for the same resource would result in a double count:

    >793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the UC Libraries. $p DOAJ

    >793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the UC Libraries. $p J-STAGE. $g a

    >856 41 $3 v.1(2005)- $z J-STAGE. $u http://uclibs.org/PID/xxxx

If there are multiple subpackages for a DOAJ title, one of which is for a Publisher Web site (i.e., no subpackage name) and the other for a subpackage name, add the $g code for the Publisher Web site access to the DOAJ title.

    >793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the UC Libraries. $p DOAJ. $g i

    >793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the UC Libraries. $p J-STAGE. $g a

    >856 40 $3 v.10 (2005)- $z J-STAGE. $u http://bibpurl.oclc.org/...

    >856 40  $3 v.1 (1995)- $z Publisher’s Web site $u http://bibpurl.oclc.org/...


NOTE: If an open access ejournal title is just part of DOAJ, apply general rule #2 above.

    e.g.,     >793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the UC Libraries. $p DOAJ. $g i

                >856 40  $3 v.1 (1995)- $z Publisher’s Web site $u http://bibpurl.oclc.org/...

2. If a licensed ejournal also contains open access content, assign two >793 fields: one for the licensed package name, and the other for $a Open access resource …$p subpackage.  Code >793 $g only for the licensed portion of the content ($g a or $g i).  Since these codes are used for statistics gathering, coding two >793 $gs for the same resource would result in a double count.

>793 0_ HighWire Press. $g a

>793 0_ Open access resource; selected by the UC Libraries. $p HighWire.

>856 41 $3 v.10(1999)- $z HighWire. Current 12 months restricted to UCSD IP addresses; all other issues freely available to all $u http://uclibs.org/PID/58706

Coding the >856 $z when the publisher and platform are different

Prior to September 2005, >793 added title entries were often used to trace both publisher package and platform.  This resulted in the presence of two >793s for one point of access (aka “double-posting”).  With the implementation of >793 $g, only the publisher package is traced with a >793 title added entry.  However, since it was determined that the platform was still a useful point of identification, the platform name will now be identified in the >856 $z instead of in a separate >793 title added entry.
