APLS provided MARC records to each project site. Each MARC record is formatted like this:
=LDR 00214nam 2200073 45e0
=092 \\$aMobile Hotspot
=245 \\$a[Library Name] [Vendor Name] Hotspot [Unit Number]
=246 \\$a[Vendor Name Hotspot Model] Mobile Hotspot
=500 \\$aIMEI 015659006409730
Each hotspot sent to project sites has a sticky note with the last four digits of the IMEI number, vendor name, and unit number. This information corresponds with a specific MARC record.
Make sure to match the hotspot to its corresponding MARC record using the last four digits of the IMEI number (field 500) and hotspot unit number (field 245). Doing so will ensure that APLS staff are able to correctly identify a unit to the vendor in the event of technical difficulties, loss, or damage.
The cataloging process should flow like this:
