August 2011

About Technical Bulletin 260

Why read this?

To learn about changes to OCLC-MARC records, many of which are related to Resource Description and Access (RDA), the proposed successor to AACR2. These changes are based on:

  • MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data Update 12 (October 2010)
  • MARC 21 Format for Authority Data Update 12 (October 2010)
  • MARC 21 Format for Holdings Data Update 12 (October 2010)
  • MARC Code List for Languages: Appendix: Changes (May 7, 2010)
  • MARC Code List Technical Notices
  • Comments and requests from OCLC users and staff

Record processing information

All sections describe changes that may affect local system processing of OCLC-MARC records.

Cataloging and local system or automation staff.

Online Installation

August 2011, unless otherwise noted. Installations of this OCLC-MARC Update may 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 2011, with these exceptions:

  • The Name and Title (nx=) and Provenance (pv:) indexes will install after August 21 (OCLC will announce this install).

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 a future version of the client).

After installation, all indexing changes will gradually become apparent as WorldCat is re-indexed.

New fields, subfields, and indicators: These may be used in both Connexion interfaces when announced by OCLC in August 2011.

New codes: These may be used in both Connexion interfaces when announced by OCLC in August 2011, as follows. In the Connexion browser, new fixed field codes will appear in dropdown lists. For the Connexion client, a few days after the installation of these changes, users will receive an email announcement that the next time they log on with the client they will be prompted to download new validation tables that will include the new codes in fixed field drop-down lists.

Form of Item fixed field and Computer File format

OCLC added the Form of Item fixed field (008/23 & 006/06) to the Computer File workform as part of the Connexion client release 2.30 in April 2011. When this OCLC-MARC Update is installed in August 2011, codes o, q, and blank character will be validated in these positions.

Database scans

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

1 Bibliographic Record Changes

MARC Organization Code no longer prints on catalog cards

Effective with cards produced after March 15, 2011, the MARC Organization Code (also known as the NUC symbol; see http://www.loc.gov/marc/organizations/orgshome.html) no longer prints on cards. Libraries that don't have a MARC Organization Code saw no change in their printed cards. The change did not affect billing in any way. Questions and re-evaluations of your institution's card print profile should be directed to: orders@oclc.org

Desc Descriptive Cataloging Form (Leader/18)

New code c ISBD Punctuation Omitted

Subfield ‡8 (Field Link and Sequence Number) added to fields 082, 083, and 085

New subfield   ‡8 Field Link and Sequence Number (R)
Identifies linked fields and may also propose a sequence for the linked fields. Subfield ‡8 may be repeated to link a field to more than one other group of fields. The structure and syntax for the field link and sequence number subfield is:
‡8 [linking number].[sequence number]\[field link type]
Linking number is the first data element in the subfield and required if the subfield is used. It is a variable-length whole number that occurs in subfield ‡8 in all fields that are to be linked. Fields with the same linking number are considered linked.
Sequence number is separated from the linking number by a period '.' and is optional. It is a variable-length whole number that may be used to indicate the relative order for display of the linked fields (lower sequence numbers displaying before higher ones). If it is used it must occur in all ‡8 subfields containing the same linking number.
Field link type is separated from preceding data by a reverse slash '\'. It is a code indicating the reason for the link and it follows the link number, or sequence number if present. Field link type is required except when ‡8 is used to link and sequence 85X-87X holdings fields. The following one-character field link type codes have been defined in MARC for use in subfield ‡8.
Field link type codes a Action
Links one or more fields with another field to which the processing or reference actions relate. This code is typically used only when there is more than one 5xx field that relate to another 5xx field.
  c Constituent item
Used in a record for a collection, or a single item consisting of identifiable constituent units, to link the fields relating to the constituent units. All other non-linked data elements in the record pertain to the collection or item as a whole.
  r Reproduction
Used in a record for a reproduction to identify fields linked because they contain information concerning only the reproduction. Other descriptive information in the record pertains to the original (with the exception of field 007 (Physical Description Fixed Field), 008 (Fixed-Length Data Elements: Books, Music, Serials, or Mixed Material) position 23 (Form of item), field 245 subfield ‡h (Title Statement / Medium), and field 533 (Reproduction Note)).
  x General sequencing
Used in a record to make a link between fields to show a sequence between them. The sequence could be one that orders the pieces of a long field that has been broken up, indicates the relative importance of fields within the sequence, or is used for some other sequencing purpose. Use of the sequence number in ‡8 is required when this code is used.
Subfield ‡8 added to these fields:   082 Dewey Decimal Classification Number
083 Additional Dewey Decimal Classification Number
085 Synthesized Classification Number Components
Indexing   Subfield ‡8 is not indexed.
Printing   When printing catalog cards, subfield ‡8 does not print.

4 Indexing Changes

Availability of indexing changes in Connexion interfaces

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 2011, with these exceptions:

  • The Name and Title (nx=) and Provenance (pv:) indexes will install after August 21 (OCLC will announce this install).

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 a future version of the client).

After installation, all indexing changes will gradually become apparent as WorldCat is re-indexed.

Bibiographic indexing changes

5 MARC Code List Changes

Availability of codes in Connexion interfaces

New codes: These may be used in both Connexion interfaces when announced by OCLC in August 2011, as follows. In the Connexion browser, new fixed field codes will appear in dropdown lists. For the Connexion client, a few days after the installation of these changes, users will receive an email announcement that the next time they log on with the client they will be prompted to download new validation tables that will include the new codes in fixed field drop-down lists.

New and changed language codes

Fields and subfields where codes are valid

Language codes are valid in these fields and subfields:

Format Field/subfield
Bibliographic Lang (008/35-37)
040 ‡b
041
242 ‡y

Authority 040 ‡b
377 ‡a
Holdings Lang (008/22-24)
040 ‡b

Indexing

All new language terms are indexed in the Language (la) index.

Connexion

There may be discrepancies between the Connexion client and browser in Language bibliographic search menus.

  • The drop-down list in the Lang fixed field will be updated when the online changes are installed. Connexion client users will be prompted to download new validation tables that will add new codes to and delete obsolete codes from the drop-down list for the fixed field.
  • For searching, new and changed language names will not appear in the Search WorldCat dropdown list until a future version of the client is released. Until then, they can be input manually via the command line.

For current list of language codes and names, see the MARC Code List for Languages ( http://www.loc.gov/marc/languages/). Any language code in the MARC Code List for Languages that does not appear in either search or fixed field dropdown lists (in either Connexion interface) can be input manually.

Changed language names (code captions)

These are changes to MARC coding practice, not to any OCLC system.
