I'm thinking that "J" is withdrawn from LC, but not from OCLC or the CONSER database.   Isn't that it?   "J" for them; anything you want it to be for you?

According to bib formats, encoding level "J" is for a deleted record. But see OCLC# 857110256 (Origins of Palestinian art, 2013) has an 042 lcccopycat, an lccn (2014453369), and 128 holdings attached to it. I can't find any other records for this work in OCLC. Can anyone explain why the encl is set to J, and would it be possible for a BIBCO library to recode it to Blank?


The last edit to this record (of course I have no idea what it could have been) was performed on Feb. 2nd, 2016.
