Multiple Versions with Differing Formats

When photoreproductions with differing formats (film and fiche, photocopy and film, etc.) are cataloged together, do not use a 533 note in the cataloging record. Instead, describe the photoreproduction aspect of each item in an 866 |z note in the mfhd using one of the phrases listed in Bibliographic and Holdings Screens for Multiple Versions.
