856 Field Questions and Decisions
1. In LC records a percentage sign and number-letter combination are used to represent the underscore (_) and tilde (~) in web addresses in the 856 field. Do not change these on cataloging copy.

2. Check the web addresses on the cataloging copy you are using to be sure they are still correct. Correct them to the current address if it has changed.

3. We will use the new indicators (4 and the second indicators) as described in LC's 856 field guidelines.
