Type of record codes
v = Multipart item holdings
x = Single-part item holdings
y = Serial item holdings
- For items with only one barcode (i.e., book with CD-ROM), code Type of Record as: x.
- For items with multiple barcodes (i.e., videotape with accompanying stand-alone book), code as: v.
- For multi-part Items (MPIs) code as: v. Set code to v even if we only have one vol. of the set. (NOTE: MPIs were known in the past at UHM Library as WPIs, or Works-In-Part.)
Encoding level codes:
[NOTE: Except for 1 and m, encoding level should match the first indicator in 866.]
1 = Holdings level 1
3 = Holdings level 3
4 = Holdings level 4
m = Mixed levels
- Code all single-part items as Holdings level 1.
- Code multipart items or serials as Holdings levels 3, 4, or m. Prefer Level 4.
Level 3 records only the summary holdings compressed at the highest level of enumeration and chronology, e.g. v.2. If you use this level there is no indication that issues are missing. If in doubt or if complete holdings data are unavailable, code as Level 3. Code 3 is rarely used for monographs.
Level 3 statement: v.2
Level 4 statement: v.2:pt.1-v.2:pt.5,v.2:pt.7
Level 4 records ALL levels of enumeration and chronology. If the piece has only a single level of designation (either numbering or date), a single-level statement is a Level 4 statement.
Examples: v.1-v.5 or, 1952-1977.
Level m is used when both levels 3 and 4 are used in different 866 tags in the same MFHD. This occurs in serials holdings statements, when an unbroken runs of holdings are recorded at the volume level, but gaps within a volume are recorded at the volume-number, or volume-number-part level.
