MARC Cataloging: Codes for 946 $a and $m

946 $a

This field / subfield is non-repeatable, not required, variable field, indicators: B,B

   Code    Purpose
      a    AsiaLink
      c CORC
      d Re-attaching holdings for accidentally deleted records
      e ExLibris testing
      f    Foreign language TechPro
      g GIS via CORC project
      n Non-Roman and other outsourcing projects
      o O-Reilly/Safari e-books set
      r Rush books during downtime (Tech Reports and Theses too)
      s Site search from CORC (ACM)
      t TechPro 

946 $m (Project Identifier)

The 946 $m is used to mark records within a collection so that the records can be easily retrieved. It is used primarily to tag records for individual books with e-books packages, but has also been used for other project collections. To find all the records for a particular collection in Aleph, use the keyword index WPI (project identifier); case does not matter.

This field / subfield is repeatable, not required, variable field, indicators: B,B

This table shows all codes currently being used.
