> The following will be posted to OCLC's web site after April 19 as a Bits &
> Pieces article for the April issue. You may want to note the correction
> in the paper copy of Technical Bulletin 236.
> In Technical Bulletin 236, Part 2, Section 6, the information describing
> which authorization can upgrade Core-level records contains an error. In
> the last paragraph under Elvl, the last sentence should read "Core-level
> records that are PCC (contain pcc in field 042) can be upgraded by
> National Enhance or CONSER authorization to 'blank'." The use of 'not' is
> incorrect. The web version, http://www.oclc.org/oclc/tb/tb236/index.htm,
> was corrected on April 4, 2000.
> One addition to this statement concerns authorized formats. National
> Enhance and CONSER authorizations can only upgrade Core-level records that
> are PCC if they are authorized in the particular format.
> We still plan to implement Encoding Level '4' on May 7. We will advise
> you of any change in these plans. If you have any questions about this,
> please feel free to contact me.
