This field is used differently in retrospective indexing, Please click here if you are doing retrospective indexing.

Used by libraries other than DHL to record local information pertaining to their libraries. DHL records its local information in tag 594 and tag 596. UNOG Library records its local holdings and copy information in tag 595, and records information that is only of interest to its staff in tag 597.

[Prior to June 2007, tag 597 was used only by UNOG Library and first indicator values of tag 597 were blank.]
