  • MARC 21 Format for Authority Data Update 23 (November 2016)
  • MARC 21 Format for Authority Data Update 24 (May 2017)
  • MARC 21 Format for Holdings Data Update 23 (November 2016)
  • MARC 21 Format for Holdings Data Update 24 (May 2017)

Online Installation

August 2017, 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 ‡6 (Linkage)

New subfield ‡6 Linkage (NR)
Added to these fields  

Data that links fields that are different script representations of each other. Subfield ‡6 may contain the tag number of an associated field, an occurrence number, a code that identifies the first script encountered in a left-to-right scan of the field, and an indication that the orientation for a display of the field data is right-to-left. A regular (non-880) field may be linked to one or more 880 fields that all contain different script representations of the same data. Subfield ‡6 is structured as follows:

‡6 [linking tag]-[occurrence number]/[script identification code]/[field orientation code]

Subfield ‡6 is always the first subfield in the field.

Descriptions of multiscript record models, with examples, are in Multiscript Records; specifications for field 880 are under that field; specifications for character sets and repertoires for scripts are found in MARC 21 Specifications for Record Structure, Character Sets, and Exchange Media (http://www.loc.gov/marc/specifications/).

Linking tag and occurrence number - Linking tag part contains the tag number of the associated field. This part is followed immediately by a hyphen and the two-digit occurrence number part. A different occurrence number is assigned to each set of associated fields within a single record. The function of an occurrence number is to permit the matching of the associated fields (not to sequence the fields within the record). An occurrence number may be assigned at random for each set of associated fields. An occurrence number of less than two digits is right justified and the unused position contains a zero.

880 1#$6100-01/(B$aShen, Wei-pin.

[Primary script is Chinese; alternate script is Latin]

When there is no associated field to which a field 880 is linked, the occurrence number in subfield ‡6 is 00. It is used if an agency wants to separate scripts in a record (see Multiscript Records). The linking tag part of subfield ‡6 will contain the tag that the associated regular field would have had if it had existed in the record.

880 ##$6530-00/(2/r$a[Additional physical form available information in Hebrew script]

[Field 880 is not linked to an associated field. The occurrence number is 00.]

Script identification code - Occurrence number is followed immediately by a slash (/) and the script identification code. This code identifies the alternate script found in the field. The following codes are used:

Code Script
(3 Arabic
(B Latin
$1 Chinese, Japanese, Korean
(N Cyrillic
(S Greek
(2 Hebrew

Entire field need not be in the script identified in subfield ‡6. If more than one script is present in the field, subfield ‡6 will contain the identification of the first alternate script encountered in a left-to-right scan of the field.

Note also that the script identification code is used in field 880, subfield ‡6, but this data element is not generally used for subfield ‡6 of the associated regular field. In the associated field, the data is assumed to be the primary script(s) for the record.

Named events are those which cannot be regarded as responsible agents, e.g., battles, earthquakes, famines, financial crises, fires, hurricanes, riots, strikes, volcanic eruptions, wars, etc.

  ‡c

File size (R)

The number of bytes in a digital file.

  ‡d

Resolution (R)

The clarity or fineness of detail in a digital image, expressed by the measurement of the image in pixels, etc.

  ‡e

  ‡3

  ‡8

Field link and sequence number (R)

Subfield ‡8 contains data that 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. The structure and syntax for the field link and sequence number subfield is: ‡8 . \

The linking number is the first data element in the subfield and required if the subfield is used. It is a variable-length whole number that occurs in subfield ‡8 in all fields that are to be linked. Fields with the same linking number are considered linked. A linking number of "0" (zero) is not used in this field.

The sequence number is separated from the linking number by a period "." and may be optional. It is a variable-length whole number that may be used to indicate the relative order for display of the linked fields (lower sequence numbers displaying before higher ones).

The field link type is separated from preceding data by a reverse slash "\". It is a code indicating the reason for the link and it follows the link number or sequence number if present. The following one-character field link type code has been defined for use in subfield ‡8 in OCLC local holdings records: a – Action

Code a is used in a record 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 that relates to another 5XX field.

 

Subfield ‡0 (Authority Record Control Number or Standard Number)

Subfield definition revised ‡0

Authority Record Control Number or Standard Number (R)

Subfield ‡0 contains the system control number of the related authority record, or a standard identifier such as an International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI). The control number or identifier is preceded by the appropriate MARC Organization code (for a related authority record) or the Standard Identifier source code (for a standard identifier scheme), enclosed in parentheses. In the latter case, the parenthetical "(uri)" is redundant and should not be included if the identifier is given in the form of a Web retrieval protocol, e.g., HTTP URI, which is self-identifying.

See MARC Code List for Organizations (http://www.loc.gov/marc/organizations/orgshome.html) for a listing of organization codes and Standard Identifier Source Codes (http://www.loc.gov/standards/sourcelist/standard-identifier.html) for code systems for standard identifiers. Subfield ‡0 is repeatable for different control numbers or identifiers. Subfield ‡0 is to be used for recording URIs which represent objects in RDF triple statements.

 

Subfield ‡8 (Field Link and Sequence Number)

Use of MARC Codes in 33X and 34X fields

OCLC highly recommends using the controlled vocabularies that are represented by these codes. With the validation of these RDA Genre/Form Code and Term Source Codes however, catalogers have choices regarding coding.

In consultation with LC, OCLC suggests continuing to follow the established coding practice of using the existing RDA terms in the respective subfields ‡a and the corresponding codes in the respective subfields ‡b along with subfield ‡2 Source codes rdacontent in 336, rdamedia in 337, and rdacarrier in 338.

For the 34X fields, catalogers have the choice of continuing to follow the established coding practice of using the respective controlled RDA vocabularies in a single field along with the Source code rda in subfield ‡2. Alternatively, you have the option of repeating the respective 34X field for each individual subfield ‡2 code.

Use of code rda in a single 34X field
