UNIMARC Manual : Bibliographic Format 1994

APPENDIX L: Complete Examples

Introduction

In this Manual, examples of individual data elements are provided with each field. This Appendix provides complete examples illustrating, in particular, parallel data elements and links between records, since these features cannot easily be illustrated under a single field. These examples reflect the different origins of the records and are in no way intended to be prescriptive with respect to the form of the data.

In this example the fill character is used in fields 100 and 105 since the source format does not provide the data. The title of the series containing the work is entered in an embedded field within the 410 SERIES linking entry field.

Parallel data transcribed from the item occurs in fields 200, 205, 210 and 225. The access point form of the parallel title is entered in field 510. The title of the series containing the record is entered in an embedded field within the 410 SERIES linking entry field.
