Hi Michelle,
I have noticed institution specific notes in the 506 field, though I
say how prevalent that tendency has been. The CONSER Editing Guide,
under "506
Restrictions on access Note," instructs the cataloger that "These
must apply to all copies of a serial. Local restrictions may be input in
a 590

Though it may require an extra step on the part of the inputting
cataloger to
input a 506 and a 590, it is one greatly appreciated by this fellow
in electronic resources cataloging land!
