Notes on Field Contents


Punctuation:

Certain types of notes may follow ISBD rules for content and form, including punctuation. Although this is not prescribed within UNIMARC, it is recommended that ISBD conventions be followed where possible.

General notes:

Field 300 has two uses: it is for general notes that do not belong under any of the more specific categories of notes; and it is for notes that belong to other categories but which were not so categorized by the source format, or were coded in the source format as belonging to a category which is not present in UNIMARC. If a note belongs to more than one category represented by fields 301 to 315, then the tag earlier in numerical order other than 300 should be used as a general rule. Notes relating to fields 320 onwards should be entered in those specific fields and not in earlier fields. If two notes belong to the same category they should be contained in separate occurrences of the required field.

Notes generated from linking fields:

From the UNIMARC record, a note may be generated from data in other fields, e.g. 4-- linking fields or 5-- related title fields. If such a note is to be generated, it is not entered in a 3-- field.
