By UNBIS practice, only the English language version of UN documents and publications is indexed, when it is available, so titles of most documents can only be searched in English. To allow searching by titles of certain types of UN publications in other language versions, tag 767 is added in the following cases:

  • Unsymbolled UN publications (required)
  • UN sales publications (required for French and Spanish editions since November 2008)
  • Symbolled publications that are shelved by call number, such as monographic series
  • Symbolled publications for which the document symbol is not printed on the item or is not evident
  • Symbolled publications where different language versions are issued under different document symbols

Do not use 767 for variant language titles in case of a multilingual item with parallel titles, however; parallel titles are recorded in field 246.

A separate 767 field should be added for each additional language version.

A 3-letter code for the language version is entered in 767 subfield $9 (corresponding to the language codes used in field 041).

The following subfields are used in tag 767:

    $9 - 3-letter language code.
    $o - United Nations document symbol, if different from symbol recorded in 191 $a.
    $t - Title. The first indicator value is 0; leave the second indicator blank. Omit initial words which are articles («The», «A», «Le», «Les», etc.)
    $z - ISBN, if any.
    $x - ISSN, if any.

Record the symbol of the other language version as it appears on the item, omitting bracketed prefixes, in 767 $o followed by the title in subfield $t.
