Re: NEED SOME INPUT ON 037 IN SERIAL RECORD Turner, Alice D 30 Nov 2006 21:06 UTC

Asha,

I don't know if this might help, but originally, the 037 field was
intended to accommodate the U.S.Government Printing Office number.
However, the definition was expanded to permit its use for any vendors
number. The Government Printing Office assigns a different and unrelated
numbers in records for serials.  So, I was always told not to bother
with the 037 field when cataloging.

Hope this might be of some help.

Does OCLC field 037 (Source of Acquisition) have any value to local data
bases? In the past I remembered ACQ folks had some use to that field.
Some time
information in that field is so obsolete; one can not rely on that.

Thanks for any comment/help.
