About Technical Bulletin 268

Why read this?

To learn about changes to OCLC-MARC records, many of which are related to Resource Description Access (RDA). These changes are based on:

  • MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data Update 25 (December 2017)
  • MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data Update 26 (April 2018)
  • MARC 21 Format for Authority Data Update 25 (December 2017)
  • MARC 21 Format for Authority Data Update 26 (April 2018)
  • MARC 21 Format for Holdings Data Update 25 (December 2017)
  • MARC 21 Format for Holdings Data Update 26 (April 2018)
  • MARC Code List Technical Notices
  • Comments and requests from OCLC users and staff

Record processing information

All sections describe changes that may affect local system processing of OCLC-MARC records.

Route to

Cataloging and local system or automation staff.

Online installation

September 2018, unless otherwise noted. Installation of this OCLC-MARC Update will be announced via logon Messages of the Day, Connexion News, and the OCLC-CAT discussion list.

OCLC strongly recommends not using new capabilities, new fields and subfields, new indicators, new practices, and new codes until OCLC announces that they may be used.

New fields, subfields, and indicators: These may be used in Record Manager and both Connexion interfaces after OCLC announces that they may be used.

Name Authority Cooperative (NACO) participants should not use the authority format changes in Authority Record Changes at this time. The Library of Congress and OCLC will announce the implementation of these elements for use in name and subject authority records at a future date.

New codes: These may be used in Record Manager and both Connexion interfaces after OCLC announces that they may be used.

New searching and indexing capabilities: All new searching and indexing capabilities will be available in both Connexion interfaces (client and browser) in the future. OCLC will announce availability via logon Messages of the Day, Connexion News, and the OCLC-CAT discussion list. After installation, all indexing changes will gradually become apparent as WorldCat is re-indexed.

Database scans

OCLC will convert, or has converted, data to their new formats where appropriate to the extent that is possible.

Subfield ‡0 Authority Record Control Number or Standard Number (R))

Field definition revised   Subfield ǂ0 contains the system control number of the related authority or classification record, or a standard identifier such as an International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI). These identifiers may be in the form of text or a URI. If the identifier is text, the control number or identifier is preceded by the applicable MARC Organization code (for a related authority record) or the Standard Identifier source code (for a standard identifier scheme), enclosed in parentheses. When the identifier is given in the form of a Web retrieval protocol, e.g., HTTP URI, no preceding parenthetical is used.

Subfield ‡0 may contain a URI that identifies a name or label for an entity. When dereferenced, the URI points to information describing that name. A URI that directly identifies the entity itself is contained in subfield ‡1.

For a listing of organization codes, see MARC Code List for Organizations (http://www.loc.gov/marc/organizations/orgshome.html), which also includes links to Canadian, United Kingdom, and German MARC Organization Code lists. For a listing of standard identifiers, see Standard Identifier Source Codes (http://www.loc.gov/standards/sourcelist/standard-identifier.html). Subfield ǂ0 is repeatable for different control numbers or identifiers. Subfield ǂ0 usually appears with other control subfields grouped at the end of the field.

Use of OCLC's control headings functionality in the 1xx, 7xx, and 8xx descriptive access point fields and in the 6xx subject access point fields will remove all instances of subfield ǂ0 in the case of names and subjects controlled to the LC/NACO and LCSH authority files. For access point fields where the control heading functionality is available related to other authority files, the control headings functionality will remove all instances of subfield ǂ0 other than the one linking to the authority record to which the access point is controlled.

Use of OCLC's control headings functionality is preferable to manually entering subfield ǂ0 in cases where the access point can be controlled to a particular authority file. You may enter other applicable identifiers in subfield ǂ0 such as the International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI) or the Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) in access points which are not controlled to any associated authority file record. However, such identifiers will be removed if the access point is subsequently controlled to a record in an associated authority file.

Local authority record control numbers may be entered in subfield ǂ0 locally. Do not add local authority record control numbers to master records in WorldCat.

Subfield ǂ0 is valid in the following fields: 033, 034, 043, 050, 052, 055, 060, 070, 080, 084, 085, 086, 100, 110, 111, 130, 240, 340, 344, 345, 346, 347, 370, 380, 381, 382, 385, 386, 388, 518, 567, 600, 610, 611, 630, 647, 648, 650, 651, 654, 655, 656, 657, 662, 700, 710, 711, 730, 751, 752, 754, 790, 791, 792, 793, 796, 797, 798, 799, 800, 810, 811, 830, 880, 883, 885, 896, 897, 898, and 899. Additionally, subfield ǂ0 can be used in fields 901-907 and 945-949, either in accord with its control subfield definition or as a locally-defined subfield.

Subfield ‡1 (Real World Object URI (R))

New subfield ‡1 Real World Object URI (R)

Subfield ‡1 contains a URI that identifies a description of an entity, sometimes referred to as a Thing, a Real World Object, or RWO, whether actual or conceptual. When dereferenced, the URI points to a description of that entity. A URI that identifies a name or label for an entity is contained in subfield ‡0.
