MARC field 049

MARC fields - Local practices :

049 - Local Holdings

1. Scope

Field 049 contains four-letter holding codes for each item that is held by the library. To enter more detailed information about individual items, including barcode numbers, chronological designations, non-chronological designations, and copy numbers, use the 949 field.

The 049 field appears in the OCLC archive record and subsequent iterations of that record (in NOAALINC, e.g.), but will not appear in the OCLC master record.

2. Indicators

Both indicators are blank.

3. Subfields

$a Holding library code.

Enter the four-letter holding code(s) corresponding to the correct library location(s) in this subfield. In OCLC, this field will be automatically populated with the OLAA code for the NOAA Central Library. Leave this code. At this time we have opted not to include codes in this field for all holdings, only our primary holding. All other holding infomration will be entered in the 949 field.

Example: 049 __ OLAA
