Shared cataloguing consistent with the ISSN Registry

As a result, a number of fields in the serial records at Sudoc are "ISSN authoritative". The content of these fields can only be modified by cataloguers if the modification is accompanied by a request made using the CIDEMIS application.

Please note: records can be completed and enriched with information not included in the ISSN Register (e.g. Rameau indexing).


Cataloguing under the responsibility of the PS Network Sudoc Centres

These are the Network Centre Managers Sudoc PS who are responsible for the cataloguing and bibliographic control of serial publications on behalf of the documentary institutions within their scope (regional or thematic).

As with the other information resources listed in Sudoc, the cataloguing of continuing resources is carried out using the cataloguing interface WinIBW based on the records in the ISSN Register.


Exemplarisation, an operation to improve the accuracy of collection statements

The accuracy of the collection status of serials is fundamental, particularly in the context of the implementation of Shared Conservation Plans for Periodicals (SCPP).

In order to create copies independently and thus locate serial publications that they consider useful to report on Sudoc, professionals from documentary institutions that are members of the Sudoc PS network have the professional application COLODUS at their disposal (identification required).


Continuing resource managers have at their disposal PériscopeA professional open access interface that allows the visualisation of the collection status of continuing resources reported by each institution in the Sudoc PS network.
