The leader and directory essentially define the structure of the
remainder of the record, and is defined by ISO-2709. Individual
implementations of 2709, like MARC or UNIMARC. The meaning of the
individual field tags is entirely up to the implementation of 2709.

Which raises the question: is there consideration for other
bibliographic formats based on MARC such as KORMARC, CMARC, CNMARC, or
UNIMARC?
