Guidelines for 050 on BIBCO records for artists, musicians and literary authors

  • Use the LC number if it can be determined from the utility.

  • If the number used by LC is not available, a locally-assigned number can be used in the 050 field.

  • Although we may supply the entire call number in an 050 field, BIBCO only requires the subfield "a" portion. In cases where LC's class number and our locally-assigned number are different, we only need to supply the subfield "a" portion of LC's number to fulfill the BIBCO requirements.
