Resource/Format WG update

notes from 2/5 meeting:

Recommendation from WG to MM-SIG for discussion:

Add Instance "Issuance" (element name TBD) metadata element to convey seriality of the instance. Content for element = distinct, integrating, continuing, (collection?) - are there others?

MARC BibLvlInstance Issuance element

a - Monographic component part

m - Monograph/Item

i - Integrating resourceintegrating

b - Serial component part

s - Serial


c- Collection.

d - Subunit


  • "Integrating" : An example of this could be a news website ; there is no fixed instance when the information is constantly changing.
  • Patty suggested "complete" may be better to describe the issuance of a monograph, instead of "distinct."
  • Wayne - "Collection" - The reason we represent these in MARC is a sort of compromise. Do we need to represent this in the inventory app in FOLIO? Lynn is considering in accomodating the legacy data we have in libraries.
  • Lynn is wondering if the four instance issuance elements are adequate to describe the issuance models that exist.
  • Ann-Marie - Do we need something to represent electronic packages?
