Dear NACO participants,

 

I’m pleased to announce that the MARC changes listed below may now be implemented in NACO authority records.

 

The upcoming quarterly update of DCM Z1 and the LC Guidelines Supplement to the MARC 21 Format for Authority Data, scheduled for release on April 6, 2020, will reflect these changes. In addition, NACO training materials are in the process of being updated and an announcement will be made when the revised files are available (which should be soon).

 

Note: Follow-up announcements about the implementation of some additional MARC fields and subfields will be made at a later date. Until you receive these follow-up announcements, please continue to follow the current instructions in DCM Z1 and the LC Guidelines Supplement to the MARC 21 Format for Authority Data for any MARC fields and subfields that are not on the list below.
