Definition

Data from foreign MARC records for which there are no corresponding MARC 21 or OCLC-MARC fields. LC and OCLC use field 886 when converting data from foreign MARC records into MARC 21 or OCLC-MARC formats when it is desirable to retain data for which there is no corresponding field or which cannot be accommodated in MARC 21 or OCLC-MARC formats for some other reason.

Leader. Information from the foreign MARC Leader
 
1 Variable control fields (001–00z). Information from a foreign MARC variable control field.
 
2 Variable data field (010–999 or zzz). Information from a foreign MARC variable data field.
