MARC 21 Authority - Full
October 1999

Field 090 - Local Call Number [OBSOLETE, 1982]
Field 090 was made obsolete in all MARC specifications when the entire 09X block of numbers was reserved for local use. Prior to that change, the field was defined for series call numbers. In USMARC, both indicators were undefined. In CAN/MARC, the first indicator values were: 0 (Current call number) and 1 (Earlier call number).
