For when you're next at work... And if this is well beyond your brief, or
you think it's simply something that Larry Dixson should be asked to reply
to, I will understand!
I'm looking around, trying to find a list of local
fields/indicators/subfields (+ repeatability values) that one might expect
to encounter/download when retrieving LC records via Z39.50. Unusually,
given the generally comprehensive nature of LC documentation in this area,
such explanation has completely eluded me.
So far, I have found by trial and error:
906 ## subfields a b c d e f g
922 ## subfield a
925 ## subfield a b x
955 ## subfield a [field Repeatable]
991 ## subfields b h i t w
I can't decide whether to add them to our Voyager validation tables, and
save ourselves the effort of removing them from the imported record, or to
expunge them. But first of all I need to know what I'm looking for and
what the fields represent.
There's also 035 subfield 9, of course, technically local, but not
specific to LC.
Anything you might have would be much appreciated.
