The running list of release notes can be found at http://www.cdlib.org/services/d2d/melvyl/public/. (Note that many of these do not have an impact on Melvyl.)
Data from MARC fields/subfields added to display
OCLC added MARC fields and subfields in support of RDA cataloging, as well as to provide users with more descriptive information about the items they are viewing. See examples below:
- MARC 382 – Medium of Performance. Display from $a. If multiple $a they will display on separate lines.
- MARC 383 – Numeric designation of Musical Works. Display $a,b,c in order. If multiple $a they will display on separate lines.
- MARC 384 – Key. Display $a. Non-repeatable field so shouldn’t have multiples.
