Holdings are created through Work Flows' "Add Volumes and Call Numbers" wizard, or as a default call number record when batch loaded. With ETDs, an archival print copy was also desired, and so a decision was made to have Master's theses microfilmed as well.Default call number/item information should be supplied as follows: Class scheme: LC (except ETDs and Microfiche) Library: DHHILL, SPECCOLL, DESIGN, LRL, NRL, TEXTILES, VETMED, BOOKBOT, SATELLITE (microfiche only) Type: DISSERTN, THESIS Home Location: STACKS, MICROFORMS, SPEC-OD (SCRC copies only) Permanent: Y Circulate: YAfter an ETD is cataloged, the preservation copy of microfiche will be cataloged as an "add-on" to the record describing the original ETD. All microfiche copies are now considered as archival copies and are stored off-site and shelved alphabetically.

Here is the basic anatomy of a MARC record for a thesis: At the close of each semester, the Design Library receives print copies of masters theses in the subject areas of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Industrial Design, Graphic Design, and Art Design. A&D staff enter 'completion date' in the Design Special Projects database. Completed final projects will be passed to Serials for binding. Serials will determine if additional CD/DVDs are needed. Serials staff will send CD/DVD to Preservation for additional copies.1. Use a piggyback barcode for thesis only (accompanying CD/DVD is not barcoded, but place disc in a Tybek envelope)Note: The SCRC copy is the archival copy.
Acquistions & Discovery creates original records for these theses. Copies go to Hill, Design and Special Collections:1. Accompanying material call number/item record and barcode are stored in Sirsi for inventory purposes but accompanying material are not checked in/out of book Bot.
These should receive automatic (XX) call numbers with Class Scheme of MFTHESIS, Library SPECOLL, and home location MICROFORMS.
This class scheme enables the display of a generic note in place of the call number in our public catalog ("Microform NCSU Thesis/Dissertation").
Note that migrated thesis call numbers contain an additional decimal point in front of the departmental abbreviation.
An abbreviation taken from the table should take the form: Cutter numbers are used to arrange bibliographical material by main entry (author's last name for theses and dissertations).Every print thesis or dissertation should have at least two copies: one for Special Collections coded BOOKBOT/SPEC-OD and one for D. Check the document Departmental designations in call numbers and subject headings to determine how many copies and to which branch location any third copy should belong.In addition, there should also be microfiche copies for print dissertations and for all ETDs. These were provided to us by University Microfilms (UMI) as part of their dissertation service.In addition, the Graduate School has implemented a new Thesis & Dissertation Support Services center that will provide seminars, guidance, and other resources for students preparing the thesis/dissertation.We highly recommend that you begin preparing at least one year in advance of your planned completion date.In the case of co-advisors, an additional copy for each co-advisor is required.Make sure your must check with OIS before planning your final defense due to US Immigration laws and your visa.Please DO NOT add |z with a count of microfiches (e.g. Processing preservation copy of microfiche Microfiche Reproduction Example (right click on image to view at higher resolution using "View Image", or double click on image to execute Endeca search)Both ETD and MFTHESIS are used with an AUTO (XX) call number to suppress the display of the call number in the OPAC (not in the staff client) and to instead display a standardized text.Here is an OPAC display for an NCSU dissertation with a preservation microfiche, where the XX call number has been replaced for display purposes Parts of a call number: LD3921 Classification number Tex Department abbreviation B73 Cutter Number All theses and dissertations are assigned the same classification number "LD3921."The departmental abbreviation should be taken from the title page.to your scheduled exam date, to allow for revisions.Please send the text of your abstract to the Graduate Office for inclusion in your exam announcement.
