What's the input to your XSLT -- is it MARCXML? If so, then you'd want
something like this:
I can't say 100% for sure that this will work without seeing your XSLT -- it may
be looking at other fields for <unitdate> as well. For example, if it's looking
at 245 subfield f, then instead of a separate match for 999 as shown above,
you'd have to add it into that template, something like this (assuming there's
only one 999 field):
<unitdate type="inclusive" encodinganalog="245$f">
<xsl:value-of select="marc:subfield[@code='f']" />
Those three things - autonomy, complexity, and a connection
between effort and reward - are, most people agree, the three
qualities that work has to have if it is to be satisfying.
