OCLC Holding Library Code maps to field 049 (Local Holdings) subfield $a (Holding library code) in OCLC-MARC records. Important: This is a required field.
A holding library code identifies one location within a group and/or one collection at a location. These symbols and codes are assigned when your CatExpress profile is set up. The following examples illustrate holding library codes:
Example. Your library has OCLC symbol ABC. A typical holding library code might be ABCG to identify your general collection.
Example. Your library has OCLC symbol QJTLZ. A typical holding library code might be MAIN to identify your general collection.
If you have a special collection or type of material you want to identify within your library (apart from your general collection), use another holding library code:
Example. You need to put an item in your reference collection. A typical holding library code library might be ABCR or REFR.
If you set the default holding library code on the Express Options screen, CatExpress automatically inserts your library's default holding library code in the data entry box labeled OCLC Holding Library Code on the Catalog screen.
If you have not set your default holding library code, CatExpress uses the default holding library code based on your OCLC profile. On the Catalog screen, you can change the displayed holding library code by typing over over it You can type the code in uppercase or lowercase. Once set, the code persists until you change it or end your session.
If you need to know what your holding library codes are, check with your local system administrator or regional service provider for the appropriate character(s).
The profile set up by the local system administrator and regional service provider staff determines how OCLC institution symbols and holding library codes are used by your consortia, library, and/or local system.
If you are adding multiple copies for multiple sites, you may enter multiple holding library codes. When entering multiple holding library codes in the 049 field (Holding Library Code) data entry box, type a comma and a space ( , ) before each additional code. For example, enter three codes as follows: ABCG, ABCM, ABCR. Your local system may require a separate location (852) field for each holding library code you add. Follow local guidelines.
An input stamp is information you type in the 049 field, in square brackets( [ ]), immediately before or after the holding library code. Usually, an input stamp identifies the location or collection represented by the holding library code. The input stamp appears on labels produced from the bibliographic record.

Price maps to field 020 (International Standard Book Number) subfield $c (Terms of Availability) in OCLC-MARC records. This is an optional field.
The list price of the item. Include the appropriate currency symbol.
Note: Do not add a Price (020) field to a record that describes a serial. The Price (020) field is not valid in serial records, so its presence causes the record to fail system validation.
Call number maps to one of the following depending on your selection in Type (these are optional fields):
|Cutter number from field below||Maps to|
|090 (locally assigned LC-type call number)||Subfield $b (local Cutter number)|
|092 (locally assigned Dewey call number)||Subfield $b (item number)|
|096 (locally assigned NLM-type call number)||Subfield $b (item number)|
|099 (local free-text call number)||Second subfield $a|
|WO 100 B865s 1973||NLM|
If a record has a class number in field 082 and you enter a Cutter number without entering a class number, CatExpress automatically transfers the call number information from field 082 to the 092 in the OCLC-MARC record you receive. You do not see this transfer happen on the screen.
Some local systems require call numbers in the 852 location field. Check with your system administrator to see if call numbers are required here in addition to being entered in the data entry boxes (090, 092, 096, 099) under the holding library code.back to top
Location maps to field 852 (Location) in OCLC-MARC records. This field may be used to record local item information. Not all local library systems can use 852 information. Confirm whether your system accepts 852 before using this field. This is an optional field.
Location information is mapped to the specific subfields in OCLC-MARC records. The following table is an example of how data fields might map to a local system:
|CatExpress||Local system||Example 1||Example 2|
|Sublocation ($b):||General location code||third floor||art collection|
|Shelving Location ($c):||Collection code||EPROF||EFIC|
|Class ($h):||Classification part of the call number||027.8223||813|
|Cutter ($i):||Item part of the call number||M82HI||C976wh|
|Shelving Control# ($j):||Shelving control number||v.1||c. 3|
|Barcode ($p):||Accession number||033450071234||6870291458|
|Public Note ($z):||Note (Public)||vol. 3 missing||7-day loan|
You may leave some or all of the Location data entry boxes blank. However, if you enter data in any other data entry box in 852 (Location), then you must enter a Location ($a) code.
