This website contains links to guidelines and resources useful to staff cataloguing Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) Library holdings on OLIS. Until July 2004 all RSC holdings were catalogued on Cardbox and made available online via the RSC web catalogue. New books and reports were also catalogued on OLIS. It was decided to replace Cardbox with OLIS, and so from July 2004, all new RSC material was catalogued on OLIS only.
Records in Cardbox were catalogued according to the HURIDOCS standards for the recording and exchange of bibliographic information concerning human rights. Tables were created showing the MARC equivalent for each HURIDOCS/Cardbox field:
