These elements will become valid for distribution no earlier than June 2006.
In order to expand the use of non-Latin scripts used in serial bibliographic records, the MDS-Serials (CONSER) file will now include records containing Hebrew, Greek, and Cyrillic scripts (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Arabic scripts are already distributed as part of MDS-Serials).
Sample records containing the new scripts have already been distributed as test records:
LCCN 2006263016 -- Cyrillic
LCCN 2006222495 -- Hebrew
LCCN 2006205713 -- Greek
