Statistical data is gathered on type of cataloging (e.g., copy or complex) and material format (monograph, serial, map, or others). Unicorn reports compile these statistics based on the ITEMCAT2 category, the Date Modified, and the Date Cataloged. ALL completed catalog records must have a date in the Date Cataloged control field, and a value in the ITEMCAT2 field on the Item Record.
