Definition

Textual description which may include both the captions and enumeration and chronology for the holdings of a bibliographic item in the collections of the reporting organization. These fields are normally not used in holdings for single-part items. They may be used instead of the coded 853-855 Captions and Pattern--General Information and 863-865 Enumeration and Chronology--General Information for multipart and serial items when those fields cannot be used adequately to describe the holdings. The 866-868 fields may also be used in addition to an Enumeration and Chronology field and any related Captions and Pattern field to record and generate an alternative display for all or part of the enumeration and chronology and captions and pattern fields.

A general description of the four types of holdings data fields, their relationship to each other and the repeatability of each is given in the 84x-87x Holdings Data Embedded in Bibliographic Records section. Guidelines for recording item information related to holdings data in the 866-868 fields is given in the 876-878 Item Information--General Information section.

1st Indicator

Field encoding level. The first indicator position contains a value that indicates the level of specificity of the enumeration and chronology in the field. Values 3 and 4 reflect requirements of Levels 3 and 4 of Holdings Statements for Bibliographic Items (ANSI/NISO Z39.71), formerly Serial Holdings Statement (ANSI Z39.44) and Holdings Statements for Non-Serial Items (ANSI/NISO Z39.57). Value 3 also reflects the requirements of Level 3 of Holdings Statements-Summary Level (ISO 10324). Values 3, 4, and 5 correspond to the level of specificity defined for the enumeration and chronology data at the record level by codes 3, 4, and 5 in ELvl.

 
blank character

No information provided. The encoding level information is not provided.

3

Holdings level 3. The field contains summary enumeration and chronology (i.e., only at the first level of enumeration and chronology in a compressed form).

For more information about subfield ǂ2, see Control Subfields.

ǂ6 Linkage

Data that link fields when non-Latin script is entered. This subfield is system supplied and does not appear in OCLC online displays. Do not add subfield ǂ6. For more information about subfield ǂ6, see Control Subfields.

ǂ8 Field link and sequence number

Data that identifies linked holdings data fields and may also propose a sequence for the linked fields. Subfield ǂ8 is required in fields 866-868 in OCLC local holdings records.

Subfield ǂ8 in fields 866-868 has only the linking portion of the link and sequence number. Note: Subfield ǂ8 is always the first subfield in fields 866-868. Depending on the linking number used, it indicates the following:

Linking number is 0: Holdings are recorded only in fields 866-868. Fields 853-855 and 863-865 do not occur in the holdings statement. When multiple fields 866-868 are used in a record that has no other holdings fields, all linking numbers in subfield ǂ8 must be 0.

867 3 1 ǂ8 0 ǂa "Teacher's guide" pt. A-B

Holdings data are recorded in the linked fields 853-855 and 863-865 but the display form of the holdings is recorded in fields 866-868.

866 4 0 ǂ8 0 ǂa [textual holdings for display]
[Field 866 replaces fields 853-863 for display purposes]

Linking numbers match in fields 853-855 and 863-865: One or more portions of the holdings data recorded in fields 853-855 and 863-865 is also recorded in fields 866-868 to provide an alternative form for display purposes.

855 2 0 ǂ8 1 ǂa [captions and pattern]

868 4 0 ǂ8 2 ǂ8 3 ǂa [textual holdings for display]
[Field 868 replaces fields 855-865 having linking numbers 2 and 3. No display is generated for those fields.]

Linking number is unique and sequences the holdings data of fields 863-865: When part of the holdings data are recorded in fields 853-855 and 863-865 and part is recorded in fields 866-868, displays may be generated from both types of fields.

865 4 0 ǂ8 3.1 ǂa [enumeration and chronology]
868 4 1 ǂ8 2 ǂa [textual holdings]
[The enumeration/chronology of the holdings recorded in field 868 falls between the fields with linking number 1 and 3. A display may be generated from all of the fields.]
