Definition of an Integrating Resource
"A bibliographic resource that is added to or changed by means of updates that do not remain discrete and are integrated into the whole. Integrating resources can be finite or continuing. Examples of integrating resources include updating loose-leafs and updating Web sites."—AACR2R, 2005 update, Glossary.
Definition of iteration
"An instance of an integrating resource, either as first published of after it has been updated."—AACR2R, 2005 update, Glossary.
What publications qualify as Integrating Resources?
- Loose-leaf publications to which new or replacement pages are added periodically.
- Web pages which are updated regularly.
If the item is a loose-leaf publication, catalog it as an integrating resource rather than a serial if the updating issues are meant to be interfiled into the main volume and the resulting binder and information contained therein do not constitute discrete, specifically numbered or dated materials. Catalog a loose-leaf publication as a serial if it consists of discrete numbered or dated issues which are to be filed chronologically in binders.
