Key Indicator 10: Cataloguing hard copy newspaper titles

Most Australian newspapers (hard copy) are accessible through the NBD and most libraries report that catalogue records for newspapers published in their state/territory include detailed and up-to-date holdings information.[1] This data is largely unchanged from last year.[2] Libraries reported only on the newspapers which they hold primary responsibility for under ANPlan.

Key Indicator 11: Cataloguing 1st generation microfilm masters

Five ANPlan libraries confirm that 100% of their first generation newspaper microfilm masters are catalogued according to the microform cataloguing guidelines[3] which were developed in consultation with all ANPlan libraries in 2006. [4] [5] For the SLNSW, this represents an increase from 70% reported last year to 100% this year.

Key Indicator 12: Cataloguing microfilm

The extent to which ANPlan libraries have been able to adopt the revised guidelines for all microfilmed titles (including all generations of microfilm) and with holdings attached to the correct format and generation varies across the ANPlan libraries.[6] [7] Libraries have again reported only on newspaper titles which they hold primary responsibility for under ANPlan.

[1] While it is not possible to list all individual issue gaps on Libraries Australia, detailed holdings means that any significant gaps are recorded as well as accurate start and end dates. If holdings change, then holdings on the NBD are amended to reflect this.

[2] However, the NTL has revised the estimate of NT newspapers with detailed and up-to-date holdings from 15% (last year) to 99% (this year).

[4] Figures shown for the SLQ for June 2009 represent the upper end of an estimated range provided at that time.

[5] Although the SLV reported 100% of their first generation masters were catalogued according to the guidelines last year, this represented current practice, rather than the percentage of the total first generation Victorian newspaper microform holdings. Last year’s data has therefore not been included in this year’s report.

[6] Graphed percentage for the SLQ represents the upper end of an estimated range.

[7] This year, the NTL have revised down their estimate both of percentage of first generation master Northern Territory newspaper microfilm and percentage of all Northern Territory newspaper microfilm titles which have been catalogued onto the NBD according to the new guidelines.
