If I encounter a record such as OCLC# 687219 (LCCN 17013589) which is a DLC record with 042 code premarc, and I wish to bring it up to current cataloging standards, what would be the proper procedure to follow? Do I just update the record and leave the 042 in place? Delete the 042 after updating the record and change the encoding level to blank? Or something else?
Thanks for any guidance on this.
