1. <location><url> 
- Added attribute "note" to allow for notes associated with the link for 856 $z

2. <physicalDescription><digitalOrigin>
- Added enumerated values: digitized microfilm and digitized other analog for 007/11 CF

3. <physicalDescription><form authority="smd">
- Added values from controlled lists of values in 007/01 <http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/ecbd007s.html#mrcb007> used as specific material designations for following categories of materials: electronic resource, globe, kit, map, microform, motion picture, nonprojected graphic, notated music, projected graphic, remote-sensing image, sound recording, tactile material, text, and videorecording--from the MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data

4. <subject><genre>
- Added subelement genre under subject for 600, 610, 611, 630, 650, 651 $v

5. <note>
