Definition

A note that gives citations or references to published bibliographic descriptions or reviews of an item. Use to specify where an item has been abstracted, cited, indexed, or reviewed.

Use field 510 for citations or references in a brief form (e.g., using generally recognizable abbreviations). Use field 520 (Summary, Etc. Note) for the actual text of a published description.

Use a separate 510 field for each title when the title of the source of the index, abstract, review, etc. changes. When coverage changes, thus requiring a different value in the 1st indicator, add a new 510 field with appropriate dates to the record. Repeat field 510 also for multiple source citations.

Use field 510 when the indexing and/or review is external to the item represented by the bibliographic record. Use field 555 (Cumulative Index/Finding Aids Note) when an index is an integral part of the item.

   
ALL 

For serials, regardless of format, use to specify publications in which a serial has been indexed and/or abstracted and the dates of coverage, if known. The indexing and abstracting services referenced are primarily those issued for serials. However, use also for certain monographic titles, particularly those that are standard reference tools in a subject area or that cover periods of time not included in continuing publications.

In 1984-1985 CONSER conducted a project adding citations for abstracting and indexing publications in field 510 in serial records. In 2002 CONSER requested that most of those citations be removed based on the recognition that abstracting and indexing data was available from other sources and that the data was frequently out-of-date in bibliographic records. Note: OCLC recommends that catalogers generally omit field 510 for abstracting and indexing citations from master records for serial publications.

BKS, REC, SCO 

For books and music, use for references to published descriptions of the item (e.g., descriptions of rare materials recorded in a brief, standardized format) or reviews (e.g., reviews in professional literature).

MIX 

For mixed materials, use for references to publications in which abstracts, citations, descriptions, or indexes of the described materials have appeared.

VIS 

For unpublished visual materials or graphic items collectively controlled, use for references to published descriptions of the work or collection. Use also for citations to reviews of projected visual materials.

1st Indicator

Coverage/location in a source. Whether or not the field identifies the specific location of the citation. For serials, use the value in the 1st indicator to indicate the type of coverage given the item by the abstracting and indexing service. In pre-AACR2 visual materials records, the 1st indicator value may be blank ( blank character ). The 1st indicator controls the generation of the display constant preceding the note.
 
blank character VIS. Obsolete. Do not use. Pre-AACR2 only 
 
Coverage unknown. The coverage is unspecified. Use to generate the display constant Indexed by:.
510   Reader's guide to periodical literature
 
1 Coverage complete. The abstracting and indexing coverage includes references to all articles in a journal and/or all issues within each volume and is considered to provide complete coverage. Use to generate the display constant Indexed in its entirety by:.
510 1   Education index, ‡x 0013-1385, ‡b 1966-
 
2 Coverage is selective. The indexing and abstracting service does not include references to all articles in the periodical. Use to generate the display constant Indexed selectively by:.
510 2   Moving picture world, ‡b 1975-
 
3 Location in source not given. The specific location (e.g., page number or volume) of a citation within the source is not given. Use to generate the display constant References:.
510 3   LC Civil War maps
 
4 Location in source given. The specific location (e.g., page number or volume) of a citation within the source is given. Use to generate the display constant References:.

Subfields

 
‡a Name of source   The name of the source in which the reference or citation appears. Give the name of the source either in full cataloging form or as a conventionalized abbreviation, for example, Evans for Evans, Charles. American bibliography.

Established forms of citations for bibliographies and catalogs used in cataloging rare materials are found in Standard Citation Forms for Published Bibliographies and Catalogs Used in Rare Book Cataloging.

510 3   Bibliographie cartographique internationale
510 4   TV guide (Philadelphia), ‡c 112181, p. 48

Subfield ‡a contains the title of a source (e.g., Index medicus), but not the name of a company or organization (e.g., National Library of Medicine). Use the key title when available. If there is no print publication, use the commonly used form of name for the online database. In cases where both a print publication and an online database exist, the name from the print form of the publication is preferred.

‡u Uniform Resource Identifier   The Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), for example a URL or URN, provides electronic access data in a standard syntax to an electronic bibliography cited or to the citation within an electronic bibliography. If the former, subfield ‡u follows subfield ‡a (Name of source); if the latter, subfield ‡u follows subfield ‡c (Location within source).
