I have a MARC record that references a work-as-subject in a 600 field
<marc:datafield tag="600" ind1="1" ind2="4">
<marc:subfield code="a">Agricola, Mikael,</marc:subfield>
<marc:subfield code="d">noin 1510-1557.</marc:subfield>
The $0 subfield was added recently when we enhanced our bibliographic
records with authority record identifiers. In this case it represents
the authority record ID of the author (Mikael Agricola) of the work
(Abckiria) that is the subject of the work the record represents.
However, when I run this through marc2bibframe2 it interprets the
identifier as identifying the work (Abckiria), not the author.
Now I'm not sure which interpretation is correct. When you have a 600
work subject (with subfield $t) that has a $0 identifier, is it
identifying the work or the author? Is it possible to specify this
somehow using the $0 subfield?
We don't have identifiers for works, but we do have them for authors, at
least for many of them. So we have an identifier for Mikael Agricola,
but not for his work Abckiria. I'm trying to figure out where to place
that identifier for 600 work subjects so that they could get properly
converted to BIBFRAME and the BIBFRAME data would include that
identifier so it can be used further down the line.
