This study told us what fields were in records, not whether those
fields were utilized in OPACs.  MARC has a wealth if information never
put to practical use.   Which fields were coded is fairly useless

A study of what fields OPACs actually use might be helpful, but that
still does not tell us what fields might be helpful to patrons if they
were utilized,'
