Cataloging and local system or automation staff.

Online Installation

August 2016, unless otherwise noted. Installation of this OCLC-MARC Update will be announced via logon Messages of the Day, Connexion News, and the OCLC-CAT discussion list.

OCLC strongly recommends not using new capabilities, new fields and subfields, new indicators, new practices, and new codes until OCLC announces that they may be used.

New fields, subfields, and indicators: These may be used in Record Manager and both Connexion interfaces after OCLC announces that they may be used.

Name Authority Cooperative (NACO) participants should not use the authority format changes in section two at this time. The Library of Congress and OCLC will announce the implementation of these elements for use in name and subject authority records at a future date.

New codes: These may be used in Record Manager and both Connexion interfaces after OCLC announces that they may be used.

New searching and indexing capabilities: All new searching and indexing capabilities will be available in both Connexion interfaces (client and browser) in the future. OCLC will announce availability via logon Messages of the Day, Connexion News, and the OCLC-CAT discussion list. After installation, all indexing changes will gradually become apparent as WorldCat is re-indexed.

Database scans

OCLC will convert, or has converted, data to their new formats where appropriate to the extent that is possible.

Subfield ‡8 (Field link and sequence number)

New subfield ‡8

Field link and sequence number (R)

Identifies linked fields and may also propose a sequence for the linked fields. Subfield ‡8 may be repeated to link a field to more than one other group of fields. You are responsible for creating and maintaining the link. (The system does not create or maintain these links). The structure and syntax for the field link and sequence number subfield is:

‡8 [linking number].[sequence number]\[field link type]

Subfield ‡8 generally appears at the beginning of the field.

Subfield ‡8 has three parts:

The linking number is required. It occurs in subfield ‡8 in all fields to be linked (fields containing the same linking number are linked).

The sequence number is optional and preceded by a period (.). It is used to indicate the order in which the linked fields display (lower sequence numbers display before higher ones). If used, it must occur in all subfields ‡8 containing the same linking number.

The field link type is required and preceded by a reverse slash (\). It is a code indicating the reason for the link and it follows the linking number (or sequence number, if present). Field link type is required except when subfield ‡8 is used to link and sequence 85x-87x holdings field. These are the valid codes:

a (Action). Used to link one or more fields with another field to which the processing or reference actions relate. This code is typically used only when there is more than one 5xx field that relates to another 5xx field.

c (Constituent item). Used in a record for a collection or a single item consisting of identifiable constituent units, to link the fields relating to the constituent units. All other non-linked data elements in the record pertain to the collection or item as a whole.

p (Metadata provenance). Used in a record to link a field with another field containing information about provenance of the metadata recorded in the linked field.

r (Reproduction). Used in a record for a reproduction to identify fields linked because they contain information concerning only the reproduction. Other descriptive information in the record pertains to the original (with the exception of field 007 (Physical Description fixed field), fixed field Form, field 245 subfield ‡h (Title Statement / Medium), and field 533 (Reproduction Note)).

x (General sequencing). Used in a record to make a link between fields to show a sequence between them. The sequence could be one that orders the pieces of a long field that has been broken up, indicates the relative importance of fields within the sequence, or is used for some other sequencing purpose. Use of the sequence number in subfield ‡8 is required when this code is used.
