14. Using Transcendent Bib Sources for Electronic Resources

There are two ways to make electronic resources visible in the catalog without adding copies to the record:

  1. Adding a Located URI to the record
  2. Attaching the record to a bib source that is transcendent

The Located URI approach is useful for Evergreen sites where libraries have access to different electronic resources. The transcendent bib source approach is useful if all libraries have access to the same electronic resources.

Another difference between the two approaches is that electronic resources with Located URI’s never appear in results where the search is limited to a specific copy location(s). In contrast, transcendent electronic resources will appear in results limited to any copy location.
