How to activate the 902/904 macros

902 -- Cataloging Information

where to use: Anywhere in the bib record when it is the active record.

when to use: When the cataloging is completed.

NOTE: It is only used for newly-created cataloging. Use when updating order records, but not when making adjustments to existing cataloging.

how to access:

Ctrl+Sh+u (books and serials)
Ctrl+Sh+i (other formats)
Ctrl+Sh+m (music)
Ctrl+Sh+l --a special key to create a 902 for LC cat. of a single volume

misc. The 902 is NOT repeatable.

**The 902 macros marked "PCC" are only to be used by professional catalogers when creating a new PCC record. Any catalog record which already has PCC coding in the 042 field is counted as LC copy and the LC macro should be used.

904 -- Receipt and Order Information

where to use: Anywhere in the bib record when it is the active record.

when to use: When receiving an item.

how to access: Ctrl+Sh+p

misc. If receiving an item AND cataloging it at the same time (as with approval books with LC copy), both a 902 and a 904 are made.
