Descriptive elements coded "as M or MA" for full level and appropriate per AACR2 and the Library of Congress Rule Interpretations (LCRIs) are included in the record.

Name/series headings:

Name/series headings are checked in the authority file. If the name/series is established, the authorized form is used. If it is not established, an authority record is created and added to the authority file. Field 042 is coded as "lcd."

Subject headings:

All appropriate subject headings are included in new records, according to the relevant standard. Subject headings found in non-CONSER records are checked for current validity and appropriateness. Construction and tagging are also checked to conform with the existing standard.


Classification is not required but is encouraged in full-level record.
