Field Definition and Scope

Application of Content Designators

Indicator 2: none


$6 Record Marker (O;NR)
Any kind of marker. This field is typically added during an automated update process.

$a Information note (O;NR)
Any kind of note, intended for cataloguers only.

Input Conventions

This field should contain either a subfield $6 or a subfield $a. Although it is possible to combine both subfields within one field, these bits of information will be split into separate fields during ingest.

Before using a record marker on a set of records, make sure this code is not already used by others for other purposes.
