Definition

A uniform title used as a locally devised series added entry. Use when the added entry form of a series title is different from that in the corresponding series statement. An 899 field is usually justified by a series statement ( field 490) or a general note ( field 500) relating to the series. For reproductions, it may be justified by a series statement in field 533 (Reproduction Note), subfield ‡f . Use for the following types of uniform titles:
  • Anonymous works
  • Composite manuscripts or manuscript groups
  • Concordats
  • Names of journals and newspapers
  • Radio and television programs
  • Motion pictures and videorecordings
  • Treaties and inter-governmental agreements

See " 4xx Introduction" for more information.
