Location Codes for Bib and Item Records

Bib Location Codes ("Library" Locations)

Starred, bolded, italicized entries are BIB LOCATIONS. These are to be used only in the Bib Record Location fixed field (never in the item record).

Item Location Codes

Item location codes are used in the item record and never in the bib record.

CAUTION

The Millennium location code table contains both BIB and ITEM location codes. As of now, there is no way to separate them in Millennium. Bib location codes belong in the bib record and should not be used in item records. Millennium will not prevent a bib location code from being used in an item record; nor will it prevent an item location code from being used in a bib record.

Use of 949 field macros in Connexion for creation of bib and item records will limit the opportunities for error. Please use the macros to best advantage.

Some location definitions may be unclear in the pop-up table in Millennium. Designation and arrangement of this table is an attempt to make them clearer (for example, “Curriculum Lab” for Gulf Coast curriculum materials). Also, codes are grouped here by library. In the pop-up table, codes are in alphabetical order by code.

Codes for cleanup files such as “czzzz” are included in the popup table but are not listed here; these codes are for records to be cleaned up as part of the migration and will eventually be gone. Cleanup codes are not to be used in new cataloging.
