DCM Z1:  008/39  Cataloging source

LC series practice:  As of June 1, 2006, LC does not create or update SARs.

PCC series practice:  Transcription of the series statement is mandatory if applicable.  Searching for series authority records, tracing the series, and the creation and maintenance of series authority records are optional.

Whatever value is originally input into this field remains; do not change this value when updating a record unless the original value was incorrect.

LC catalogers working in the LC Database:  Note that an authority record created using the LC ILS authority generation feature will have 008/39 set to value "d."  If the NAR or SAR macro is not used, this value must be changed manually to value "blank" (the appropriate value for new records created at LC).
