As more and more print serials are replaced in favor of electronic versions, discoverability of print content is vital for seamless access to library resources. Mississippi State University Libraries worked to enhance the discoverability of print journals within the online catalog through a detailed inventory project and subsequent “clean-up” of MARC holdings statements in the libraries’ ILS. Not only was this project incorporated in order to assist MSU students and faculty in the discoverability of print journals, but also to display more accurate holdings for collection analysis and in OCLC for interlibrary loan. Attendees can expect to learn how to transform confusing holdings records while still following acceptable MARC holdings standards.
