Short 'n' Sweet: A 540 note using the standard language "Public performance rights secured." will be added to media records in the local catalog when public performance rights (PPR) are secured by NCSU Libraries.

Long 'n' Drawn Out: Workflow will vary depending on whether the title exists in the collection or is newly purchased.

Original Cataloging: The 540 PPR note is local to NC State.  When performing original cataloging in OCLC, do not include a 540 PPR note.  Add the 540 PPR note after exporting an original record from OCLC into the local catalog.
