Hi all

Sorry I deleted the response to this and I've just had a query from our library's management regarding ISNI and its use in records. What is the official position on this?

Thanks
Alwill

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

Richard
