FYI. The below email regarding to new 385/386 and other fields was sent out by Mr. Paul Frank in March, 2015.

Hi everyone,

The NACO nodes have completed the work necessary to exchange some recent additions to the MARC format.

1)  New subfields for MARC 368 (Other Attributes of Person or Corporate Body)
2)  New subfields for MARC 046 (Special Coded Dates)
3)  New MARC fields for 385, 386, 672, and 673.


-------------------------------------------------

1)  New subfields for MARC 368 (Other Attributes of Person or Corporate Body)

New MARC 368 subfields:
$d    Title of person
$s   Start period
$t   End period
$u  Uniform Resource Identifier
$v   Source of information
You may code these new subfields in NACO records where appropriate, exercising your cataloger’s judgment on whether to add them. They are not required.


Best practice:  368 subfield $d Title of person
Although NACO generally prefers the use of controlled terms in the 3XX fields, a controlled term in 368 subfield $d for the title of a person might not be appropriate, since the title of a person is based on usage. I suggest (with thanks to Adam Schiff) that you record in 368 subfield $d a title that you have included in either an authorized or variant access point. 368 subfield $d is repeatable.

For example:


100 0  Sulaymān $b I, $c Shah of Iran, $d 1658 or 1659-1694

368    $d Shah of Iran



100 0  Alexandra, $c Empress, consort of Nicholas I, Emperor of Russia, $d 1798-1860

368    $d Empress, consort of Nicholas I, Emperor of Russia $d Princess of Prussia

400 0  Frederika Luisa Charlotte Wilhelmina, $c Princess of Prussia, $d 1798-1860

2)  New subfields for MARC 046 (Special Coded Dates)

New MARC 046 subfields:
$o   Single or starting date for aggregated content
$p - Ending date for aggregated content
You may code these new subfields in NACO records where appropriate, exercising your cataloger’s judgment on whether to add them. They are not required.

3)  New MARC fields for 385, 386, 672, and 673.

385         Audience Characteristics
386         Creator/Contributor Characteristics
672         Title Related to the Entity
673         Title Not Related to the Entity

You may code these new fields in NACO records where appropriate, exercising your cataloger’s judgment on whether to add them. They are not required.

NACO best practice
Guidelines and examples for the new fields are being developed by the PCC Standing Committee on Training (SCT).
It might be a good idea to wait for the NACO best practice guidelines to be developed before you start adding these new fields , but you may add them now if you wish. Please follow the guidelines in the MARC 21 Authority Format while the NACO best practice guidelines are being developed.

Here are some basic things to keep in mind about the new fields:


385         Audience Characteristics
386         Creator/Contributor Characteristics
These fields are used in NACO records for Works and Expressions . Please do not use these fields in authority records for persons.

My understanding is that they are indeed ready for use, see much more on the LCDGT a vocabulary to be used in said fields, here: http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/lcdgt-principles.pdf<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.loc.gov_catdir_cpso_lcdgt-2Dprinciples.pdf&d=AwMFaQ&c=1QsCMERiq7JOmEnKpsSyjg&r=RCKljtMlyMOHJd-uTmcGJg&m=ZgNd9PGCiIqbxvFz1Sp9umZXT_juD3zpBt8Qk-VeNB8&s=zXw5bFMyeEqdOtPltDogA_jO5s6B9nWwqINiSJ6yzjw&e=>

Does anyone know the status of the 385 (audience characteristics) and 386 (Creator/Contributor Characteristics) fields? Are they ready for use?
