List identifier:  rdacarrier

This list contains Resource Description and Access (RDA) terms and corresponding two-character lower case alphabetic codes for RDA Carrier types.  These types can be recorded in MARC Bibliographic and Holdings records in textual form and/or in the two-character coded form in MARC field 338 (Carrier Type).  They may also be recorded, sometimes in a more granular and sometimes in a more general form, with one-character codes in the MARC 007/01 (Specific material designation) with a few exceptions (see tables).  In the following, the two-character codes and terms for field 338 $b and $a, respectively, are listed along with the corresponding MARC 007 (or other) codes.
