For certain items, we may create a DVD “preservation copy” of a VHS videotape or other format (e.g., a VHS tape is damaged and it is unavailable as a DVD). We have a special i-type with special loan rules so that the preservation copy only circulates within the Library (unless there is special permission for use in a classroom).
Use the MIDCAT record already existing for the original and add notes pertaining to Midd's DVD copy. Do not add a new record to OCLC.
