Definition

A differentiable note of local interest. Field 599 is not part of the standard MARC format. It will not be retained in the master record, but will be included in the record displayed during the editing session, the exported record, the institution record, and the user's archive record. Use field 599 for notes you judge to be inappropriate or unnecessary for the master record. Use for notes pertaining only to the copy of the item located in your institution (e.g., accessions information, local holdings, or receipt dates). Generally, use other note fields for notes applying to all copies of an item.

You may define field 599 according to your needs for local processing information. Field 599 provides more flexibility than field 590 because it includes indicators and subfield codes. For example, you may use field 590 for undifferentiated local notes and field 599 for differentiated local notes.
