I am cataloging a large group of digitized photographs. The
images will be linked to the bibliographic records through
field 856. In the past, we have only used \u in field 856. It
has been suggested that we begin to use subfields \a and \2 so
that the hostname can be globally changed more easily if the
images are moved to another server.
This is the example I was given: 856 7_ \u /GP/00001 \2 http
\a aries.vsla.edu. (/GP/00001 is the sub-directory and file
name for 1 image.)
I can't find an example of \u that only includes the
sub-directory and file name. All the examples I have found
shown the complete URL which will not address the problem of
making future changes easier.
Also, I am wondering about the
order of the subfields. Does that matter?
Thanks in advance for any help!
