"Dark archive" copy

Under past Preservation policies, the Libraries kept a backup copy of magnetic (diskettes) and optical (CD-ROM/DVD-ROM) media, either in Preservation or in various Collection Managers' offices. These copies were shadowed to the public in DRA and Sirsi, as it was not within the terms of our software license to allow circulation of two copies of a title for which we had purchased only one. These copies constitute a "dark archive" similar to that which is maintained for NCSU theses/dissertations in SCRC.

Procedure
  1. Original discs or diskettes are to be handled according to the rules for the location for which they are being added. If the item or items are in a separate container, they will be barcoded and assigned the appropriate item type (SOFTWARE, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, etc.) for that media type. If they are accompanying a book or serial, they will be handled as for the branches noted above.
  2. Backup copies of the original media should be set to the appropriate item type for the copy (often diskettes were backed up to optical media), but toggle the public display off by shadowing the call record. Add a "Staff note" to the item record with the words "Dark archive", indicating that this is a non-displaying, non-circulating copy that should be kept to make a backup if needed sometime in the future. Since these will not ever be placed in the parent book, they should receive their own call number and item record, with BOOKBOT as the receiving library. These will all be housed in the bookBot.

Statistics

Count a statistic only for accompanying materials that are:

  1. Barcoded separately
  2. Receive a Sirsi call number/item record

For all other accompanying materials, count a statistic only for the main piece cataloged.
