440 field has been made obsolete. This page is to provide guidance for cataloging under the new guidelines.

  • NCSU Implementation:
    • Follow the guidelines below for original cataloging.
    • Do NOT flip 440's to 490/830 in new copy cataloging.
    • Marcive will (for free) convert 440 fields to 490/830 as part of our monthly processing. New copy cataloging will, therefore, be corrected when are records are returned from Marcive.
    • We will not be doing any retrospective work at this time.

Coding for 490 first indicator definitions:

The definition of "0" will not change.

The following new definition for "1" is now valid:

  • 1st indicator--Series tracing policy The series has no corresponding added entry (not traced) or has a corresponding 800-830 series added entry field (traced differently).
  • 0 - Series not traced
  • No series added entry is desired for the series.
  • 1 - Series traced in 8XX field

New Definition:

When value "1" is used, the appropriate field 800-830 is included in the bibliographic record to provide the series added entry.
