This is a local LC field.

This field is repeatable.

Use this field to record information about special local decisions made regarding the record.

151  ##  $a 6e Arrondissement (Paris, France)

A note "Online," used for a period of time to identify newly created records that were candidates for unobtrusive quality review, was deleted programmatically during the conversion from MUMS.

During the conversion from MUMS, a 952 note "RETRO" was added to records that had value "b" in MUMS fixed field box 43.  This identifies records originally created as part of the retrospective project to convert manual LC authority cards to machine-readable form.  The records may not contain all notes and references found on the original 3x5 cards.

LC's Rare Book Team uses this field in some records to specify the subcollection name in the Rare Book and Special Collections Division.
