An important NGM Pilot milestone has been reached November 18, 2010, with the addition of the UCLA Film and Television Archive (FATA) as a UCLA Library with a separate ILS. This proof of concept has implications for the possible addition of other campus libraries (such as Law Libraries) that have different ILSs from that of the “parent” library. Details about adding other UC collections with their own ILSs will be forthcoming.
FATA “constitutes one of the largest collections of media materials in the United States – second only to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. – and the largest of any university in the world. Its vaults hold more than 220,000 motion picture and television titles and 27 million feet of newsreel footage. The combined collections represent an all-encompassing documentation of the 20th century.”
The NGM Implementation Team and CDL worked with OCLC to develop workflows for adding a library with an ILS separate from that of the main campus ILS as a distinct library to the campus holdings. For UCLA, FATA’s records will appear under Level One holdings at UCLA (Find a copy in the Library).
For other UCs, the records will appear under Level Two, University of California Libraries.
For non-UC libraries, the records will appear under Level Three, Worldwide libraries own this item.
