a  LC visible file entry (NR)


Field 890 was a local field used by LC to record its serial record visible file entry.  Although output to LC, it is not part of the communications format and is not distributed to subscribers.

Prior to August 1983 this field was used by LC to record holdings of permanent custodial divisions.  It was principally used in newspaper records.

The serial record visible file entry was assigned by the serial cataloger in accordance with the Serial Record Division Manual, M19.  The field always ended with a period, closing parenthesis, or make of omission.

890 ## International journal of applied philosophy.

890 ## Financial statements of Quebec, fiscal year ended … (Québec (Province). Ministère des finances)

890 ## Maine. Annual planning information for Lincoln County.
