Online Installation

August 2009, unless otherwise noted. Installations of this OCLC-MARC Update will occur in stages, which OCLC will announce via logon Messages of the Day, Connexion News, and the OCLC-CAT listserv.

OCLC strongly recommends that users not begin to use new capabilities, new fields and subfields, new indicators, new practices, and new codes until OCLC announces that they may be used.

New searching and indexing capabilities: All new searching and indexing capabilities can be used in both Connexion interfaces (client and browser) when announced by OCLC in August 2009. In Connexion client, new indexes and languages will not appear in dropdown lists, but can be input manually via the command line (Client dropdown lists will be updated with new indexes in the next version of the client).

New fields, subfields, and indicators: These may be used in both Connexion interfaces when announced by OCLC in August 2009.

New codes: These may be used in both Connexion interfaces when announced by OCLC in August 2009. In both interfaces, new fixed field codes will appear in dropdown lists. When the online changes are installed, Connexion client users will be prompted to download new validation tables that will include the new codes in fixed field drop-down lists.

Database scans

OCLC will convert data to its appropriate new format to the extent that is possible.

1 Bibliographic Record Changes

007 Physical Description Fixed Field (Videorecording) (R)

Subfield ‡e:
new code s 
  ‡e Videorecording format (007/04) (NR)
s: Blu-ray disc. Optical disc format designed for high-definition video and data storage developed by Sony/Phillips. Blu-ray uses a blue-violet laser with a shorter wave length to allow for greater data storage in a smaller space. Requires a special player to view the disc.
Indexing   Subfield ‡e code s added to material type indexes (mt: and mt=) represented by the new Material Type "blu" for Blu-ray disc.
Conversion   Bibliographic records that can be safely identified as Blu-ray items will have their Videorecording (007/04) subfield ‡e values converted to s.
Connexion client   In Connexion client, the drop-down list for the Material Type qualifier index will not include "Blu-ray Disc (blu)" until the next version of the client is released. Until then, you may input the new Material Type qualifier (mt:blu or mt=blu) manually as a command line search.
Connexion browser   In Connexion Browser, the drop-down list for the Material Type qualifier index will not include "Blu-ray Disc (blu)" until later in 2009. Until then, you may input the new Material Type qualifier (mt:blu or mt=blu) manually as a command line search.

New codes defined y Yearbooks
Reference publication issued on an annual or less frequent basis that contains articles summarizing the accomplishments or events of a particular year within a specific discipline or area of endeavor. Annual reports, which are administrative overviews of an organization, are not coded here. Note: Code y was made obsolete in 1988. This technical bulletin announces its redefinition.
  2 Offprints
Publication that originally was published as an article in a monograph or a serial and that is also issued separately and independently. Includes preprints and postprints.

  6 Comics/graphic novels
Instances of "sequential art" in which a story (whether fact or fiction) is told primarily through a set of images (often in the form of multiple "panels" per page) presented concurrently but meant to be "read" sequentially by the viewer. The accompanying narrative and/or dialog text, when it occurs, works integrally with the images to tell the story. Note: Replaces Books 008/33 and Books 006/16 code c (comic strip). Existing codes c will be made blank and replaced with Books 008/24-27 or Books 006/07-10 code 6 by OCLC.
Connexion client   When the online changes are installed, Connexion client users will be prompted to download new validation tables that will add these new codes to the drop-down list for the BKS fixed field.

Indexing   Subfields ‡a and ‡z are indexed in the Standard Number index (sn: and sn=). Subfields ‡a, ‡z, and ‡2 are indexed in the National Bibliography Number index (nn:).

017 Copyright or Legal Deposit Number (R)
