Tip #175: 007 Field Cheat Sheet for Sound Recordings on CD

The 007 field contains coded information about the physical characteristics of the material being cataloged. Evergreen catalogers mainly see 007 fields on bibliographic records for videos, sound recordings, and electronic resources. This field usually does not appear on MARC records for books.

The 007 is a fixed field, which means the contents are position dependent. In Evergreen, the subfield labels (|a, |b, |c, etc.) do not display. There are no indicators for the 007 field.

A typical 007 field for a sound recording looks like this in Evergreen:

007 __ sd fsngnnmmned

Note the space between the ‘d’ and ‘c’. That third position (subfield c) is undefined, so in order to keep all the codes in the correct slot, there has to be a blank space.

Here’s a cheat sheet for coding the 007 field for sound recordings on CD:

Subfield a = s
Subfield b = d
Subfield c = blank space
Subfield d = f
Subfield e = s if stereo; = m if mono; = u if unknown playback configuration
Subfield f = n
Subfield g = g
Subfield h = n
Subfield i = n
Subfield j = m
Subfield k = m
Subfield l = n
Subfield m = e
Subfield n = d if digital storage; = e if analog storage; = u if unknown capture and storage technique
Subfields f, j, k, l, and m are optional, so leaving them blank is okay. Just be sure to leave a blank space for the omitted coding. You can also ‘save’ the space by inserting a |, which means “no attempt to code”. An example of this would be: 007 __ sd fm|gnn|mneu

Tip #109: Blu-ray Cataloging reminders in Evergreen Indiana

More Evergreen libraries are expanding their videorecording collections to include Blu-ray discs.
Blu-ray videorecordings are cataloged much the same way as DVDs, with some important differences in the 007, 250 and 538 fields.

  1. The fifth space (or fourth letter) in the 007 physical characteristics field is always an ‘s’, to indicate a Blu-ray disc. (Although in Evergreen all the coding in the 007 field is strung together, in vendor records such as OCLC this position is viewed as subfield e.)
    Example:

    007 __ vd csaizq (for a Blu-ray disc)
    007 __ vd cvaizq (for a DVD)
  2. To help patrons spot a Blu-ray videorecording in the OPAC, catalogers should always add “Blu-ray version” to the 250 edition statement. If the exact words “Blu-ray edition” or “Blu-ray version” do not appear on the item or container, put the statement in brackets.
    Examples:

    250 __ [Blu-ray version]
    250 __ Blu-ray version.
    250 __ Special ed., [Blu-ray version]
  3. The 538 system details note is for a Blu-ray videorecording always identifies the material as a Blu-ray disc and advises that a special player is required.

    Example:

    538 __ Blu-ray disc, widescreen presentation; Dolby Digital, 1080p High Definition; requires Blu-ray player.

—Since DVDs and Blu-ray discs do not play on the same type of equipment and are formatted differently, they cannot share the same MARC record. Please do not attach a Blu-ray videorecording to a DVD record.
—The GMD for Blu-ray is [videorecording], the same as for a DVD. Do not use a GMD of [Blu-ray] in the 245 field.

Combo packs: If you receive the DVD and Blu-ray versions bundled together in a set, we suggest you repackage and circulate them separately so each can be attached to the correct MARC record. If each format does not have a unique ISBN, use the set ISBN and/or UPC code on both records but use subfield ‘z’ instead of ‘a’ in the 020 and 024 fields. Otherwise the two records may merge if a future deduplication project includes videorecordings.

More information about cataloging Blu-ray discs and Blu-ray/DVD combo packages can be found on pages 2.37 – 2.40 of the EI Cataloging Procedures Guide.

Tip #102: Cheat Sheet for 007 field for DVDs and Blu-ray

The 007 field contains coded information about the physical characteristics of the material being cataloged. Evergreen catalogers mainly see 007 fields on bibliographic records for videos, sound recordings, and electronic resources. This field does not appear on MARC records for books.

The 007 is a fixed field, which means the contents are position dependent. In Evergreen, the subfield codes (|a, |b, |c, etc.) do not display. There are no indicators for the 007 field.

A typical 007 field for a DVD looks like this in Evergreen:

007 __ vd cvaizq

Note the space between the ‘d’ and ‘c’. That third position (subfield c) is undefined, so in order to keep all the codes in the correct slot, there has to be a blank space.

Here’s a cheat sheet for coding the 007 field for Blu-rays and DVDs:

Subfield a = v
Subfield b = d
Subfield c = blank space
Subfield d = c if in color; = b if black & white; = m if a combination
Subfield e = v if DVD; = s if Blu-ray; = z if HD DVD
Subfield f = a
Subfield g = i
Subfield h = z
Subfield i = s if stereo; = m if mono; = q if four or more channels; = k if mixed, such as a stereo and surround sound

Other examples:

007 __ vd bvaizm (An older, black and white movie)
007 __ vd csaizq (Blu-ray disc)

NOTE: A bibliographic record for an enhanced DVD will have a second 007 field because it is also an electronic resource. The first letter in that 007 field will be a ‘c’.

Visit the OCLC 007 Resource Page for more information about coding the 007 field for DVDs and Blu-ray discs.
