Taxonomic Classification Source Codes
Taxonomic Classification Source Code Usage in MARC


Taxonomic Classification Sources contains a list of taxonomic classification systems and assigns a code to each. The purpose of this list is to enable identification in a bibliographic record of a source list from which the taxonomic information in a description has been taken. For code assignment, general structure, usage, and maintenance guidelines see Source Codes for Vocabularies, Rules, and Schemes.

Arrangement of the List

Entries in the list are arranged in alphabetical order by the code and consist of the source code followed by the bibliographic citation for the source documentation. The citations are linked to the online source for some codes.

Code Structure

Each code consists of a maximum of 12 lowercase alphabetic characters. Possible additions to codes are described in Source Codes.
