Only participants in the PCC URIs in MARC Pilot Project may now add 024s to authority records.  These will contain URIs in $0 or $1 as appropriate.  For everyone else, the moratorium on adding 024s remains.  

I did a presentation for the PCC Operations Committee about our participation:

Hello all

deepest apologies for being behind the curve on this - but are we now allowed to put ISNI or VIAF into the 024 of name authority records?

There was a moratorium on adding these and I heard that a decision on adding the 024 fields was to be made at the 2019 ALA Midwinter.   However, I haven't heard anything.

I did a quick search for the PCC Task Group on Identity Management in NACO group - but didn't find anything that addresses this.

Thanks for any feedback
