Definition

A note that describes a resource that is a reproduction of an original material. Describe the original resource in the main portion of the bibliographic record and data relevant to the reproduction as a note in field 533 when the data differs from the information describing the original. Use whenever you choose to have the description reflect the original and the note reflect information about the copy. See section 3.2, Reproductions and Original Microform Publications, for more information.

In MARC 21, field 533 subfield ǂ7 is defined as fifteen character positions that contain coded information pertaining to the reproduction. OCLC implemented field 539 in place of field 533 subfield ǂ7. Each 539 field must follow its associated field 533.  

Guidelines

 
Mixed materials

Use field 533 for information describing a copy of a record unit when the agency describing the materials possesses only a copy and, in accordance with conventions, the original is described in the main portion of the control record. Use field 533 in conjunction with field 535 which indicates the repository holding the original.

Electronic resources

Use field 533 for information describing a remotely accessed electronic reproduction of a work previously published in printed form, including electronic books, as outlined in Library of Congress Rule Interpretation 1.11A. Apply this practice only when the reproduction manifestation is represented by its own bibliographic record, separate from any record for the original print version. Also, see section 3.2, Reproductions and Original Microform Publications, Cataloging Electronic Resources: OCLC-MARC Coding Guidelines, and LCRI 1.11A for more information.

Separate records vs. single record

Creating separate records for a resource is preferable when both remote and directly tangible (non-remote) versions exist. When cataloging digital versions of print materials, generally create separate records for the digital version of a resource. For more information about digital masters, see the Digital Library Federation Registry of Digital Masters Record Creation Guidelines.
