Increase in encoding level. If the encoding level in selected records from national libraries has been changed to a higher encoding level by those national libraries, and the revised records are received through batchloading, code a indicates an increase in the level of cataloging, e.g., code a is used when a preliminary cataloging record (ELvl code 5) is upgraded to full cataloging level (ELvl code blank character).  


Corrected or revised. If a WorldCat record is replaced in any situation other than what is described under codes a or p, Rec stat changes to code c.


New. The WorldCat record has not been changed.


Increase in encoding level from prepublication. If a Cataloging-in-Publication record is replaced with the full MARC record received through batchloading (i.e., ELvl changes from code 8 to code blank character or 1), Rec stat changes to code p.
