Tip #115: Remove the 510 and other fields while editing

At the last Evergreen Indiana Cataloging Committee meeting, it was decided to add the 510 (Citation/References note) field to the list of variable fields that should be removed from MARC records in Evergreen.

Before adding holding to an imported or existing Evergreen record, always ‘clean up’ the record by removing the unwanted fields listed in the EI Cataloging Procedures Guide.

Fields that commonly need to be deleted include:

9xx EXCEPT 901, 994 and some 949

Do not delete a 949 field if it looks like any of the examples below:

949 __ $h SUDOC (for government documents in print)
949 __ $h SUDOCC (for government documents on CD-ROM)
949 __ $h SUDOCF (for government documents on microfiche)
949 __ $h ONLINE (for government documents in an online environment)

All other 949 fields should still be deleted.

The complete list of MARC fields that should be deleted can be found on pages 2.6 – 2.8 of the EI 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.
