Cataloguing and Processing

YRL catalogues and processes library materials for member libraries including all titles purchased using allotment funds. Member libraries may also send in items that have been purchased outside of YRL to be catalogued and processed. These items are known as process only. Member libraries in consultation with YRL have library-specific process only forms. As YRL follows TRAC cataloguing protocols, cataloguing/processing options are restricted to TRAC approved practices.

All process only items must be accompanied by a completed process only form. Each item must be stamped or labeled with the member library's name. If more than 20 items are sent in at one time, please contact YRL to confirm turnaround times.

For more information including process only forms, contact catalog@yrl.ab.ca (school library staff please use schoolq@yrl.ab.ca).
