Authority records distributed by the Library of Congress
with 040 $b's are valid in the OCLC Authority File; however,
OCLC NACO participants currently may not edit or add a 040
$b to authority records.
In the third quarter of 1999, OCLC plans to update the
authorities workform, adding a default of 040 $b eng, as well
as to allow participants to edit the 040. The Authorities macro
will be updated accordingly.
OCLC users should contact Susan Westberg with any other
questions regarding recent authority implementations.
