Computer-generated, six-character numeric string that indicates the date the MARC record was created. Recorded in the pattern yymmdd.
One-character alphabetic code that indicates that categorizes the type of dates given in 008/07-10 (Date 1) and 008/11-14 (Date 2). For continuing resources, the code in 008/06 also indicates the publication status.
The choice of code for 008/06 is made concurrently with a determination of the appropriate dates for 008/07-14. For most records data is derived from information in field 260 (Publication, Distribution, etc. (Imprint)), field 264 (Production, Publication, Distribution, Manufacture, and Copyright Notice), field 362 (Dates of Publication and/or Sequential Designation), or from note fields.
Each character position in fields 008/07-10 and 008/11-14 contains a blank.
008/07-10 contain the beginning date of publication; 008/11-14 contain the characters 9999.
008/07-10 contain the beginning date of publication; 008/11-14 contain the date the item ceased to be published.
008/07-10 contain the year and 008/11-14 contain the month and day formatted mmdd.
008/07-10 usually contain the initial (or beginning) date and 008/11-14 the terminal (or ending) date.
Dates appropriate for 008/07-10 and 008/11-14 are unknown, (e.g., when no dates are given in field 260).
Earliest possible date is given in 008/07-10; latest possible date in 008/11-14.
008/07-10 contain the date of reproduction or reissue; 008/11-14 contain the date of the original, if known. 008/11-14 contain code u ("uuuu"), if unknown.
008/07-10 contain the date; 008/11-14 contain blanks (####).
008/07-10 contain a beginning date of publication; 008/11-14 contain the characters uuuu since no ending date is known.
Determination of dates for 008/07-10 is made concurrently with the choice of code for 008/06. See the section above on 008/06 for examples and input conventions related to coded date information. The use of fill characters in 008/07-10, although possible, is discouraged since the data in Date 1 is used for retrieval and duplicate detection in many systems. When fill is used in 008/07-10, all four positions must contain the fill character.
Determination of dates for 008/11-14 is made concurrently with the choice of code for 008/06. See the section above on 008/06 for examples and input conventions related to coded date information. Four fill characters (||||) are used when no attempt has been made to code these character positions.
Two- or three-character alphabetic code that indicates the place of publication, production, or execution. Place code is an authoritative-agency data element. Code from: MARC Code List for Countries. Choice of a MARC code is generally related to information in field 260 (Publication, Distribution, etc. (Imprint)). The code recorded in 008/15-17 is used in conjunction with field 044 (Country of Producer Code) when more than one code is appropriate to an item. The first code in subfield $a of field 044 is recorded in 008/15-17. Three fill characters (|||) may be used in place of a valid code, but their use in 008/15-17 is discouraged. The data in this field 008 data element is used for retrieval and duplicate detection in many systems. When fill is used in 008/15-17, all three positions must contain the fill character.
Three-character alphabetic code that indicates the language of the item. Code from: MARC Code List for Languages. Choice of a MARC code is based on the predominant language of the item. Three fill characters (|||) may also be used if no attempt is made to code the language or if non-MARC language coding is preferred (and coded in field 041 (Language code)).
One-character code that indicates whether any data in a bibliographic record is a modification of information that appeared on the item being cataloged or that was intended to be included in the MARC record.
Codes are assigned a priority (recorded in the order of the following list) that determines which code is input when more than one code applies to the item.
Some of the data was omitted because the data exceeded the maximum length allowed by the system used to create or process it.
Record contained characters that could not be converted to machine-readable form (e.g., incidental nonroman characters on predominantly roman alphabet records, mathematical symbols, etc.).
One-character code that indicates the original cataloging source of the record. If the cataloging source is known, it is identified in subfield $a of field 040 (Cataloging Source).
Creator of the cataloging data is a participant (other than a national bibliographic agency) in a cooperative cataloging program.
