Tip #26: Fields to delete in Evergreen MARC records

Whenever you import a new MARC record or select an Evergreen record for your new item, be sure to check it for fields that need to be deleted.

The ‘unwanted’ fields you will most likely find are:

029
016
263
590
9xx (Delete all EXCEPT for 901 and 994)

The complete list of MARC record fields which should be deleted in Evergreen Indiana can be found on pages 2.7-2.8 of the Cataloging Procedures Guide.

To delete a field, place your cursor somewhere in the targeted row and press both the shift and delete keys.

For more information about using the MARC editor, refer to Chapter 14 of the Evergreen Indiana Cataloging Training Manual.
