  • Motion pictures and videorecordings

Note: Current practice is to enter the title without articles and use 1st indicator value .

 
No nonfiling characters. No initial article character positions are disregarded. Use value if the title does not begin with an article.

Diacritical marks or special characters at the beginning of a uniform title field that does not begin with an initial article are not counted as nonfiling characters.

1-9   Number of nonfiling characters present. A field begins with a definite or indefinite article that is disregarded in sorting and filing processes.

Any diacritical mark or special character associated with the first filing character is not included in the count of nonfiling characters.
