It looks like noone responded to the message I sent out with the request. Which means that it wasn't concluded.
We can consider it on its merits. It does already have a 639-3 code. I think that it would be useful to add the additional name in part 3.
HÃ¥vard: could you please process this one?

Dear Rebecca, et al.,

There was some discussion about this request, but I did not see a resolution. Is this being added to part 2? Also, does an added name need to be registered for it in part 3? If so, I will put through the paperwork.

Thanks for your help in this.

We maintain the MARC 21 documentation in French so we were asked by Sarah Cunningham of the First Nations Public Library about adding a code to the language code list.  The community prefers the name &quot;Oji-Cree&quot; over the name favoured by linguists &quot;Severn Cree.&quot;
