I am still confused on the anwser provided for Processing Specifications, number 3. Do we have to submit book samples, is it manadatory part of the specifications since we have to submit this bid via Central Bidding. If so, we need an address to submit the samples and a contact person. Please advise.

Can someone please get back to me whether or not we need to send samples with this bid, if so to whom do we send them to. Please advise.

For the 100 MARC records, can we follow industry standard with AACR2 for titles prior to 2013 and RDA for the rest? Additionally, there are some titles that are not yet published and therefore we are unable to provide a completed MARC record. Can we provide a "shell" record since these aren't actually available yet?
SCPPSKN on 21-May-2015 09:29:29 AM
Please submit the book samples to Laura Abbey, 13855 River Road, Luling, LA 70070. You would provide samples of books as specified 3. a-g. For example, you would provide a book sample of a hardback book with a mylar jacket (3e).
SCPPSKN on 21-May-2015 09:38:34 AM
Yes, please follow the industry standard with the AACR2 for the titles prior to 2013 and RDA for the remainder. Yes, you may submit a "shell" record for those titles not yet published.

Could you please clarify which type of theft detection your district uses? You call out Checkpoint Security Strips, however Checkpoint does not make security strips. Do you prefer Checkpoint under pocket theft detection or 3M Security Strips?
